The drama of this Sarabande is sure to captivate your student. With its rolled chords in the left hand and the tension building opening sequence in the right hand, it is great for teaching the student to think horizontally as they play Baroque music. Encourage them to think of the long musical line and they, along with their listeners, will stay very engaged.
