Full of tender sadness, “First Tears” is useful for working on paying attention to expressive markings. From detailed dynamics to complicated slurs, there are an enormous amount of instructions. Students will also encounter tenuto markings as well as changes in tempo. Following the markings helps to create the lamenting quality of this piece. Choosing a slow tempo is also crucial for creating a melancholy mood.
