This piece was dedicated to the victims of the nuclear explosion in the city of Chernobyl, Ukraine. Larysa Kuzmenko was my theory instructor, and she was more than glad to give me ideas when I told her I wanted to perform this piece. This piece is extremely disturbing both aurally and emotionally, conveying the truly harrowing picture of a nuclear holocaust. My contemporary music repertoire is still limited, but this is definitely a favourite. ๐Ÿ™‚

An exercise that helps develop left hand independence and control on the piano by playing around with a stride bass. This is a useful one if you want to improve the accuracy of your left hand, even if you’re not that interested in stride piano as a genre. It forces you to be very precise in your playing, and really control the way your hand lands on chords. You can’t fluff around on the piano keyboard “looking” for the right note – your hand just has to be in the right place straightaway!
