Lesson , Part 2: Für Elise (Beethoven) | Hoffman Academy

Hello and welcome. I ‘m Joseph Hoffman and
today we are going to learn one of the
most celebrated classical pieces of all time.
” Für Elise ” the grape Ludwig avant-garde Beethoven
composed “ Für Elise ” a small over 200
years ago in Vienna and then dedicated
it to a cryptic charwoman named Elise. In
German, “ Für Elise ” means for Elise. And
who was this womanhood Elise ? No matchless knows,
but as you listen to “ Für Elise ” you can
get some hints about how Beethoven
felt about her. By the end of this video recording
you ‘re going to be playing one of the
most celebrated, beloved classical piano
pieces of all fourth dimension. By the way, this “ Für Elise ” tutorial is my easy Level One
tutorial, which is perfective for anyone
with I ‘d say about six months to one or
two years experience with piano. To help
you master this birdcall, I highly recommend
that you get the accompanying sheet
music for this tutorial which is
available for buy on-line at the
Hoffman Academy store. Or if you ‘re a
premium member of Hoffman Academy, the
sheet music is detached included with your
premium membership. If you have less than
six months experience you may want to
check out my super easy preparatory
flat tutorial, or if you ‘re a more
experience pianist and you ‘d like to
learn Beethoven ‘s original advanced
version of fear Elise check out my flush
4 or level 6 tutorials. Ok lashkar-e-taiba ‘s come to
the piano to start learning. Let ‘s
concisely check out where we need to place
our hands and which notes were going to
be needing for “ Für Elise ”. These two
gloomy notes are all you need for the bequeath
hand. All you ‘re going to need are your
leftover hand finger 1 on this E and your
left hand finger 3 center finger on
in-between C. Your correct hand will be improving here
on this a minor pentascale and every
once in a while you ‘ll besides actually
quite much you ‘ll need this D-sharp as
well. so your mighty pass finger 4 will
sometimes be on D but most often on this
We have to kind of play doubly duty.
then every once while your finger 1
will besides have to shift here to G-sharp
When you do that do n’t twist your hand
like this that will put press on your
wrists. Go ahead and just slide your handwriting
forward like this to reach the finger
1 there, and then there ‘s this one topographic point
you ‘ll even need this in truth senior high school e here.
So those are the notes we ‘ll need for
” Für Elise ” get ‘s originate bet. Okay so
go ahead and find this position with
your hands and check out the first gear five
notes of the sheet music. You ‘ll see that
we alternate between E in the right hand
right here and this D-sharp. The foremost
five notes go E, D-sharp, E, D-sharp, E
as you ‘re doing that go ahead and
let all of your fingers fair comfortably
stir where they ‘re going to be felicitous as
you go back and forth between fingers
5 and 4. You do n’t have to keep
fingers 3 2 1 locked on these
whiten keys, they can shift down
to those once you need them 1 2
3 4 5 now can you try those
beginning five notes ?
good, nowadays notice in the sail
music it says pianissimo. Beethoven
wanted this to feel truly sensitive and
sweet so nice and soft as you play those
notes. Play it one more prison term and be certain
you ‘re playing piano, go. Good after
you play those first five notes the next
four notes go B with finger 2, then D
with finger 4, so we skip up and then
step down to C, skip down to A.
So we have a jump up and then a measure
down then it skip down. B D C A immediately you try
now if you put all that together
we get e, D-sharp, E, D-sharp, E B D C A
Or without the letters. now I ‘d like you to
press pause and try that on your own
several times until you feel like you ‘ve
in truth mastered it. Be certain you ‘re
playing pianissimo to get the properly
sound that Beethoven was going for.
now one thing I ‘d like to point out is
as you ‘re playing do n’t play with the
flat little finger. That ‘s kind of a bad habit that
you ‘ll not want to get into. Your
little finger should always play near the tap
like this. Okay, will you try one more
prison term, using actually great pose playing
near the little finger tip off. Let ‘s try it together go.
Great, now pause if you need extra
practice, otherwise lease ‘s keep going.
Check out the next three notes. now
you ‘ll notice we come down to the freshwater bass
clef which means our leave hand has to
take a become. We ‘ve got a middle C and
then it skips up to E so we ‘ll play
3 1 in the left pass on middle
C then E above middle C and then the
mighty bridge player plays A B. then all together we
get C E A B each hand plays two notes C E A B. now you
good, now let ‘s look at the following four
notes. This time we have E in the left
handwriting and then a G-sharp in the right
hand. So remember we ‘re going to glide our
handwriting forth a little bit sol finger 1
can easily reach the G-sharp. Finger 2
is going to stay on B, it was on B before
and as I glide over, precisely going to move
my thumb. Finger 2 is going to be hera.
So we have E, G-sharp, B and then for C I
can glide my hand back down to its
natural position. einsteinium, G-sharp, B C
now you try those four notes.
Good, now
let ‘s put those two patterns in concert we
had C E A B
E, G-sharp, B C. immediately weight-lift pause and try
putting those two phrases together. Try
it as many times as you need to to feel
confident and then press play to go on.
immediately let ‘s hear all of that put in concert
from the begin we have.
Notice I started in truth soft but then I let it
crescendo a little sting, but then it
decrescendo again back down to the A.
So starting actually balmy, it can grow a little moment and
then get actually soft again. When you see
pianissimo all the notes do n’t have to
be extremely, super voiced merely has to have a
very docile tactile property to it. Some notes will
be actually soft and sometimes you can
crescendo a little bite to give it some
touch. now press hesitate and work on
those notes, test to add some dynamics, let
the notes get a little loud sometimes
a little piano sometimes but constantly
gentle and delicate. Try that on your own
then bid play to go on.
now let ‘s expression at this next section. It starts off with an e in the leave hand
and then immediately goes up to an vitamin e in
the right hand, then leave hand ‘s feel 1
on E right hand ‘s finger five on E. ‘ E, E ‘ and
then it ‘s merely like the begin. Going
on, now here it changes a little bit, we
have E C B A. So detect that radiation pattern was a small
different to end with. E C B A. Will you try that ? Good,
now try it with me. Say the letters E C B A Good
now let ‘s try this unharmed department. We have,
E C B A. now weight-lift hesitate and try that
part on your own then weight-lift play to go on.
now here we see a repeat sign and
this funny story little bracket with a one
inside. That ‘s called a first ending and
a first ending means when you get there
do that alone the first clock that you get
to it and you ‘re going to get to it
again because this repeat signal means go
back to the start and play all of those
notes over again. therefore once we get there we
go back to the begin and play again
now here I ‘ve already gone into the
inaugural ending therefore I ca n’t go in there
again. This time I have to go to the
irregular ending which is marked with a
fiddling bracket and the number two inside.
so once again I ‘m playing an a but now I
have raw notes and I ‘m going to keep
You see I start with finger two on B and
then it fair steps up four notes in a
row stepping up B C D E G F E D F E D C E D C B. now let ‘s stop there did you see that blueprint you notice we
had this crescendo stepping up to E and
then I ‘ve got to reach my hitchhike down a
small bite to G and then up the interval
of a one-seventh to F from G about up a
full octave but not quite to F. G F and
step down, step down. then I ‘ll do that
lapp form again one step lower. By
that I mean we had this pennant of going
up a seventh then step down, step down,
then I ‘m going to go up a seventh
again but starting one note lower this meter
up a seventh, step down, step down, then we
go up a seventh again, step down, step
down, but starting one notice lower. This is
called a sequence where you have this
form, now the same traffic pattern again but
one footstep lower, lapp pattern again but one
tone lower.
Okay, nowadays I ‘d like you to press pause and
work on this section that goes B C D E G F E D F E D C. E in the
left bridge player D C B. Press pause and work
on that department on your own then crush
play to go on.
Great now when you get there, you ‘ll
notice we ‘ve got this decrescendo that
brings us back to pianissimo, then we go einsteinium
in the left hand, E in the correct hired hand, E
in the leave pass, E in the right hand with
finger 5 then E in the right pass
with finger 1 which means we ‘ve got to
shift the hand. now as we play einsteinium with
finger 5, then we ‘ve got to play that
lapp note with finger 1 and that ‘s to get
quick to play this actually high einsteinium with
finger 5. If you do n’t make that shift
you wo n’t be able to reach that high e.
See how I did that ? I go vitamin e in the bequeath hand
E in the right hand, E in the left hand, E in
the right handwriting E again with finger 1
and then E truly eminent with finger 5. e E E E E E
In slow motion, left, justly, left, mighty,
right, shifting fingers, veracious on the
truly high E. now bid hesitate and
commit that short design on your own
then weight-lift play to go on.
now let ‘s put this solid section
together, starting in the second ending
with finger 2 on B, we crescendo up to
mezzo-soprano forte.
now, will you press pause and
sample putting that hale incision together
then weight-lift play to go on.
now looking at the notes that come following,
you ‘ll see it ‘s back to the chief theme
we had at the start.
Just like ahead
here comes another first ending with a
repeat sign of the zodiac, so I ‘m going to take the
repeat back to this forward-facing
repeat sign to do the section over again.
My hand moves second down.
Notice I ca n’t go back into the first
ending sol I have to skip to the second base ending
which brings me to this A, and you actually
do that without a pause. It goes neat
to the second ending and pretend that
first ending not even there, because I ‘ve already
done it. You ‘re only allowed to go in the
first ending the first time. now before
we try putting this all together, I just
wanted to talk concisely about the rhythm.
Most of these notes are eighth notes so
you equitable play them brace and smooth. TI-TI-TI-TI-TI-TI-TI, but
every once and a while you get one of these
dotted quarter notes, which is equal to
three one-eighth notes technically. So you
could think to yourself TI-TI-TI-TI-TI-TI-TI, 1 2 3, BA-BA-BA
1 2 3
If you ‘re counting 1 2 3 at the
lapp accelerate as your eighth notes,
you ‘ll hold it the correct measure.
Technically it ‘s just a beat and a one-half,
but if you ‘re counting one-eighth notes as
your exhaust, It ‘d be 1 2 3 BA-BA-BA 1 2 3 BA-BA-BA 1
I hear a draw of students rushing through
those, preferably than holding it a wax
3 beats, so reach sure you ‘re
stretching that note out
so it sounds the way it ‘s supposed to.
1 2 3 BA-BA-BA 1 2 3 BA-BA-BA 1 2 3 See what I mean ? That adds to the feel of the piece, nowadays let me
act through the whole thing for you start to finish with
all the repeats. You can just listen or
if you feel ready you can try playing
along. If you do play be sure to hold out
those dot quarter notes and besides
remember to play with dynamics.
I ‘ll count 2 beats and then we ‘ll
start. 1 2
You ‘ll notice how at the end on the death
time, I kind of slowed down and got
softer and softer on each of those survive
three notes for a very special ending.
Great, remember to not pound any of the notes,
this is a gentle, sensitive birdcall. Play it
beautifully and legato, remember to
follow the dynamics. Enjoy playing. Great
problem learning how to play the tune of
” Für Elise ”

practice, I recommend that you use the
sheet music, which remember is available
from the Hoffman Academy on-line shop or
available for exempt with your Hoffman
Academy Premium Membership. glad
rehearse and see you next meter
Hey would you two like to hear another
interesting report about “ Für Elise ” ?
Uh, is this the methamphetamine fib again ? No, no, this is
decidedly not the trash report. In fact
it ‘s a love story. Ooo !
Let ‘s hear it ! Well I suppose if you must.
Would you be more interested Scuba if
you knew it was my love story ? Wha ?
very ? You have a love floor ? Just listen
and I ‘ll tell all. Oh son ! so, I was living
in Cambridge Massachusetts at the fourth dimension. I
just graduated from college and then
moved out east for an internship at
Harvard. Wait, is this a true floor ?
100 % true. So I was going to church fair correctly
down the street from Harvard Square
where I met this adorable, healthy female child.
Ah .. She had equitable recently graduated from
Wellesley College. She seemed therefore brace
and classy
but besides caring and smart. so ? therefore, what ? I
hateful she sounds amazing ! Did you ask her
out ? actually, no. Mah ! Yeah this seems
funny now, but at the time I actually
thought to myself, she ‘s such a bang-up lady,
besides bad she ‘s not my character.
Are you serious ? not your type ? Yep, that ‘s
what I thought. So we remained casual
church friends, until one day .. Yes, go on.
This daughter that I thought was n’t my character,
she for a long time had dreamed of
learning to play “ Für Elise ” on the piano.
No way ! And she was friends with another
female child who played the piano truly well
and she was thinking of asking this
girlfriend of hers to teach her to play
piano so she can learn “ Für Elise ”.
No ! No ! She should ask you ! Would you let Mr.
Hoffman tell the floor for crying out
loud ?
Sheesh ! Well, actually that ‘s what happened. A
different supporter told her no, do n’t ask
your girlfriend to teach you you should
ask that ridicule, Joseph Hoffman, to
teach you. Yes, yes ! And so, that ‘s what she
did. She called me up and asked if I
would teach her piano lessons. Woohoo ! I
agreed, so we met at the church because
neither of us owned a piano at the time,
and I gave Kelly a piano moral. Wait,
wait !
I ‘ll bet during the lesson you touched
her hand ! aqualung ! nothing exciting
happened during the moral, but after the
lesson, we went out for a hot cocoa
down the street at Burdick. How amatory !
Pretty soon after that we both realized
that we were a good fit for each other
after all. In fact, we liked going for
long walks in the woods and along the
Charles River even better than piano
lessons. So we never did another piano
moral and she never learned “ Für Elise ”,
but that ‘s okay because “ Für Elise ”
brought us together, and fast forward 15
months late, and Kelly and I were
married. All thanks to piano and Mr. Van
Beethoven ‘s “ Für Elise ”.
Hooray ! wow ! Well Scuba, I hope that beloved story
was n’t excessively boring for a guy like you.
Nope, not at all.
Why aqualung, are you crying ? Do n’t worry
these are happy tears. It ‘s equitable such a
beautiful floor. I ‘m touched,
Scuba. Glad you liked the history. Wow, piano
actually can change your life. In more ways
than you might realize.
