“The Dancing Lesson” is a good way to introduce young pianists to playing a waltz.  Delicacy and tone production are quite important in this piece. The melody must emerge from thirds and fourths in the right hand, and this can be challenging for students. Playing the melody alone can help with the voicing as well as with creating longer, singing phrases. Performers may opt for either a flexible tempo or a stricter pulse.
