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 a 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.
