Clavinova Festival Performance Tutorials
These midi files can be used on any CVP Clavinova but were recorded on a CVP709, so some of the voices may not transfer as recorded. Many of the recorded orchestrations will also automatically change the Clavinova voices as the student performs. In addition, I have also included and mp3 for these orchestrations, so students and teachers who don’t have CVP Clavinovas can use them for rehearsal as well. As mp3 files are recorded at performance tempo and include the first measure of the piano part to help students hear where to start playing. I would suggest putting these mp3 files into iTunes, then opening them in the free app Chord Tracker, where the tempo can be slowed down for rehearsal. – Lori Frazer
Amen Corner Performance Tips
The Clavinova will play a 7 measure introduction before you begin to play. Playing the eighth notes in a jazz feel make this arrangement a lot of fun!
The background will stop at the end of measure 23, allowing you to play a “much slower” ending.
Enjoy, and let it swing!
Super Sleuth Performance Tips
The Clavinova will play a 6 measure introduction. Your first pick up notes will be in measure 6, beat 4 of this introduction. You’ll notice this arrangement has a very Pink Panther feel. You can listen to the Mp3 example for guidance if you need it.
Be sure the Clavinova’s split point is set to the F# below middle C. The sounds on the Clavinova will change automatically for you.
