Does anyone have any excercises for voicing in this section other than rhythms and over accenting? enter image description here

  • I apologize, this is the passage I was mentioning, and I am just curious if there's any other way to practice voicing rather than overemphasizing or doing rhythms. Sep 8 at 15:56
  • Maybe it's because I'm not a pianist, but can you elaborate what the challenge is or the goal? Is this about effectively bringing out the melody over the supporting voices? Sep 8 at 16:01
  • I would practice the right hand at a slower tempo, playing the top-line sixteenth notes almost as if they were eighth notes and striving for something approaching a legato. This will help avoid choppiness with the alternating thirds that works against hearing a singing melodic line. That will sound better than any type of punchy accent.

  • Thank you! I will try that Sep 8 at 16:25
  • Yes, you've gotta have a strong pinky-finger for this. :) Sep 8 at 22:08

I recommend practicing each pair of sixteenth notes as a block chord. When this can be done with the proper voicing, it will be easier to maintain that voicing when playing as written.

Here's a notated example of what I mean:

Another possibility that could be explored is to play the inner voice entirely with the left hand, leaving the right hand to play the melody only.

    Love those options! Thank you for your time to actually notate it! Sep 8 at 17:59
