Be playfull ..
To me it is important not to take the written rhythm and dynamics to literally. I consider my breathing my metronome. That's why i recommend that you play the composition as you tell a story - with here and there a little pause because you have to think or with acceleration because you are enthusiastic. When you play intuitive, the music will become fluent and natural. Music from the heart will become emotion. Be playful with the note score. Have fun playing and studying “Dance Marie! Dance!” I would appreciate it very much to hear your own version on YouTube. My work will receive another set of wings and a new audience and that means the world to me as a composer. I will share your video as gratitude in return on my website and social media. The sheet music is available as a pdf via Harp Column
