Serenata Espanola

by:

Andrea Gonzalez

In this lesson, Andrea González Caballero breaks down Serenata Española, a piece written for piano by Joaquin Malats, and arranged by Francisco Tarrega for guitar. She jumps straight into the music, suggesting fingerings that carry the correct musical intent and how to choose the proper tempo. The melodies in this piece are very vocal, and Andrea consistently refers back to the importance of both separating the melody from the accompaniment and adhering to the rules of rubato. Likewise, like a vocal line, certain notes are more important than others, and deserve special attention with articulation and dynamics. Finally, Andrea discusses how to treat repetitions of similar musical elements as well as how and where to shift efficiently. By the end of this lesson, hopefully you’ll be inspired and prepared to tackle this difficult yet highly rewarding piece in the guitar repertoire.
