poco piano: sweet dreams

I’ve been teaching this girl online and this is one of the pieces that she brought to me. It’s important to be familiar with the piece in order to teach it so I’ve played through it a couple times. It’s a simple piece full of youth. It reminds me of daydreaming in classroom, thinking about all the other places I could be. The melody is innocent and full of child like longing. When I was teaching this piece, the thing I emphasized the most was the singing line. It’s easy for the other notes to clutter the melody hindering it from singing it’s little heart in circles.
