Teaching 3 against 4 in Chopin’s Fantasie Impromptu

Chopin's Fantasie

A few years ago I attended a masterclass where the featured teacher was explaining how she teaches 3 against 4 in Chopin’s Fantasies Impromptu. Recently I had an opportunity to try this method with my student and it worked really well.

Here is a video with my explanation of this approach.
