キーはどこに?! Where have my keys gone?!

新型コロナウィルス感染拡大防止のため、ピアノだけでなく、多くの習い事のお教室がお休みになってしまいました。

教室内を少し模様替えしようかな?と思って、室内の物を移動しているうちに、ピアノの椅子がうまく配置出来なくなってしまいました。

それで、無理な姿勢になってしまい、低音部と高音部の演奏が困難だったので、配置換えは諦めて、元に戻してしまいました!

生徒さんには、常々、正しい姿勢で演奏するように言っているのですが、子どもたちは「はやく弾きたい!」という思いが先走って、椅子の位置がズレていることがよくあります。

某先生の生徒さんは、発表会で演奏した後にに、「先生、この会場のピアノは高音部の鍵盤が足りていません。」と報告しに来たそうです!駆け抜けるようなスピードで上行を繰り返す曲だったのですが、弾いている途中、とうとう右手が鍵盤からはみ出してしまい、落ちてしまったんです!

Where have my keys gone?!

During a lesson, one of my students stopped playing before the end of the piece and said, “My piano doesn’t have enough keys for these low notes.”

I told her that as most standard pianos have 88 keys that is enough to cover all the notes that she is currently learning. I suggested she may have perhaps mistakenly started playing one octave lower at home, however, she insisted that she chose the correct key as the opening note.

After, she played another more dynamic piece using the lowest D, which is lower than the notes she had previously said she couldn’t play. So, I asked her if she had a problem playing the low key on her own piano that she had described as ‘small’. She innocently replied, ‘No. I was able to play every note of this piece!”

Later, she noticed her mistake herself and exclaimed, “Oh, yes. I must have chosen a lower key octave as an opening note!”

It is quite common that students start playing one octave higher/lower. I once heard about a student who remarked to her teacher following her performance “Sir.., the piano on this stage lacks some keys on the right hand side, so my fingers dropped off the keyboard when I was playing the high notes!”
