  • Get students to experiment further with dynamics away from their pieces. They should already be confident moving between piano and forte, and this will be an extension of those skills and understanding.
  • Ask students to play their scales or other technical exercises at pianissimo or fortissimo dynamics, and with crescendos and diminuendos.
  • Encourage students to listen to the sound they are making as they play. Do this by getting students to play some of their old pieces but adding extra dynamics in.
