Review Grade 3 – Spinning Song
This Grade three piece of music has a very calming and simple tone throughout the entire song. The dynamics of the piece were pretty constant, however there was an increase of intensity during the last half section.
The Grade 3 piece is mainly in a 2:3 time signature, however the beginning and end of the piece are played in 4/4. The Grade 3 piece was written with no tempo changes within it; however there was an increase of dynamics (volume). Grade three utilizes many repeated patterns such as starting on one note and finishing on another note, rhythmic patterns, and many repeated chords. Grade three pieces are written with one-three voices in mind; however Grade 3 utilizes two main voices throughout the piece.
I liked this Grade 3 piece because I thought it was very calming to listen to. Grade 3 is mainly used for Class 1 students who are just beginning to learn how to play piano. Grade 3 pieces are usually very childlike and do not stretch the hands of the pianist very much. Grade 3 is mainly used for developing skills of playing, such as note memory and rhythm reading. Grade three pieces sound fairly similar to each other; however Grade 3 – Spinning Song was different compared to some other Grade 3 pieces I had listened to. Grade 3 pieces usually deal with very slow tempos, however Grade 3 – Spinning Song was played at a pretty fast pace. Grade three is written on the treble clef only; however Grade 3 – Spinning Song does not deal with many high notes.
