In this video, Leigh (an adult student of Musiah’s online piano lessons) plays “In The Hall Of The Mountain King” — originally a piece of orchestral music composed by Edvard Grieg for the sixth scene of Act II in Henrik Ibsen's play Peer Gynt.
This particular piece is Lesson #64 on the Musiah Piano Syllabus and requires students to execute a nice crisp staccato throughout almost the entire piece. It also has a fair few sharps and flats to keep students on their toes.
A much-loved piece, this is certainly one of the course favorites with many students.
Leigh has written a Musiah Review describing his experiences learning piano online with Musiah.
