Video of Piano Teacher John Hancock Playing Chopin


Chopin : Petit Chien performed and filmed by John Hancock


This is a piece that people tend to play too fast.
There is a mistaken belief that it has to be played in one minute.
This untrue myth is derived from the translation of "Petit"
meaning small in French.

Small in English comes from the Latin word "Minitus" .
English pronunciation became ("my-noot" meaning small) and
became minute or it can also mean sixty seconds depending on
the pronunciation.
I play this at a tempo that doesn't sacrifice beauty and
style in order to obtain speed.
