Alla Turca : LUSENET : Everything About Teaching and Learning the Piano : One Thread

Some practice routines to acquire tempo in the Alla Turca movement of sonata by Mozart, particularly the coda and the turkish tambourine octave sections. Thank you

I played the Rondo Alla Turca in a concert recently. The way I practiced it was hands separately, slowly at first then with both hands together slowing increasing tempo. I would highly recommend spending time on scales, arps, and octaves beforehand to make sure your fingers and hands are warmed up and nice and stretched. Take your time and enjoy the music. Once you've mastered the technique slowly, then you can build the tempo up. Good luck !
