What's the best way to learn a new piece of music?
I just got a new teacher. My old teacher made me practice my right hand, then my left hand, then both hands together. Easy-peasy!
My new teacher makes me analyze the piece first. What's that all about?
Why do I need to know whether the song is ABA, or AABA? Or ABA with a bridge, or ABAA with a keychange at the final A, or whatever?
Can't I just learn it one note and a time and play it like I feel it?
