Below is the lesson for “Allegro” by Mauro Giuliani.
Composed in a minor key, this classical piece serves as an excellent study for developing fingerpicking and dynamics. Dynamics is at the focal point of this lesson. Throughout this piece we will be referencing four terms:
p (piano) = Soft
mf (mezzo-forte) = Moderatley Loud
f (forte) = Loud
> (decrescendo) = Gradually Softer
As you can see above, these dynamic markings will indicate the volume of a particular passage in the music. Now it’s important to note that the interpretation of music depends on individual decisions by the performer. Feel free to use the suggestions I have made for this piece, but don’t be afraid to expand past them and develop your own interpretation.
