On May 30th, we had our spring concert in the school auditorium. We played a piece called “Chu Chu” on the koto. We worked on this piece for a few months. This is a video of me playing a part of Chu-chu.
When I practiced at home, I tried to focus on the dynamics, and playing it smooth. I also made sure that I didn’t touch the different strings too. During the practice in class, I learned that I should listen to my peers when I play to play the piece without getting too fast or slow. Also, I focused on the dynamics too.
I think I did quite well in the actual performance because I didn’t forget the piece and didn’t make many mistakes. Also, I think I did quite good on dynamics because I tried to play soft where it’s piano(soft), and hard where it’s forte(hard). But I think we all rushed especially in the easier parts. I would practice more next time so that I could have more time on memorizing the piece. Also, I would use the metronome when I practice too. I would rate myself: 8/10.
