Deck the Halls Not really a question but an observation. I like these videos because I can watch how you organize your fingers before placing them. In the places you use "block fingering," you prepare the "block" but you don't actually put those fingers down; just the one that will be played. I think block fingering is what causes most of the tension in my left hand because i actually put pressure on all of the fingers as I was taught in elementary school. When you are just hovering, there can be no tension. Something for me to work on, thanks.

Thank you Beth for taking the time and effort to create these festive videos; it's much appreciated. I will be starting on Silent Night  next week with the added incentive of being accompanied on the piano by my sister-in-law in Liverpool (UK), when we see her at Christmas.

Best wishes, Nick
