Music and motion/videotaped replay

I demonstrate a swing or roll of the arms to realize the circular flow of the piu mosso section of Chopin's Waltz in C# minor, Op. 64, no 2. At the end, I add slow motion frames. Needless to say a state of relaxation is desirable to achieve Oneness with the piano. Mindful practicing and being in the moment are always helpful. Muscle memory and "feeling" the translation of movement into sound are important ingredients of joyous music-making.
