Ferdinando Carulli - Andante in A minor Op. 241, No. 18 - During his life, Carulli wrote many small student level pieces designed to work on introducing/reinforcing technique and musical ideas. In "Andante" the student has to combine the 'Bass/Chord' (Boom/Chick) technique with alternating free-stroke scales in the A section. In the B section, the student has a melody with an alberti bass accompaniment. I use this piece to help a student become comfortable with this change in textures. In addition, in the left hand there are some slurs that provide an extra challenge for the student.
