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 a 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
My Little Chiminea Performance Tips
National Federation of Music Clubs Primary Class 1 – Piano Solo
The Clavinova will play a 5 measure introduction counted in 4/4 time. Play the pickup note in measure 5, beat 4 of the introduction.
Play ½ time with this background (meaning 1 measure of the background on the Clavinova equals to 2 measures of your music). If you need assistance, listen to the Mp3 example.
The Clavinova will automatically change sounds for you.
