I always talk to my students about keeping fingers close to keys. We have a “home base” for each finger, as I tell them. Some of you might disagree: I have some friends whose fingers are far away from keys and they play quite well and have no glitches. But still, I suggest younger students always keep their fingers as close to the keys as possible and if they decide they want “flyaway fingers” when they are accomplished players then they can go for it with my blessing … until I hear any glitches, that is!
So listen but also watch this video of Lauren playing oboe and English horn … I like how close the fingers are to keys.
I know next to nothing about video games. Or maybe that’s not true: I really know nothing abut video games. But I guess this music is from some game called Portal.
