Playing Guide – Clowns: Staccato and Character of the Piece with Yian

Yian is playing the Tchaikovsky piece called Clowns for her ABRSM Grade 3 Piano Exam. She is playing this beautiful but has some problems with getting an even yet playful tone that the piece requires sometimes stomping on the notes while the left hand requires a staccato approach.

Also, it is important to play around with not only the dynamics but also the tempo at certain parts like bars 16 and 17 just before the repeat of the “theme” starts again.
