Arcangelo Corelli

This slow, two-line counterpoint presents an opportunity for students to learn the tempo largo and practice playing slowly without dragging. The two lines of counterpoint are fairly independent and may require additional hands-alone practice. Additionally, light pedal may be used to connect the melody, but students should be careful not to blur notes together. Also to be noted are the observation of two-note slurs, as well instances in which articulation differs between the hands.
