How To Play Sonatina II by Beethoven
Play Through Sonatina II Beethoven
In Sonatina No. 2 by Beethoven, the Moderato section is full of expression and beautiful, smooth notes. The biggest challenge with this piece is to focus on the many different notes as well as the bowing. Start by first learning to play all of the notes with separate bows. Work on all of the many string crossings by keeping your elbow up.
Next, go through and add in all of the slurs. Concentrate on making sure that you have equal amounts of bow for the long, single notes and the large group of slurred notes.
