Teaching tip for “O Little Town of Bethlehem”
Both the Primo and Secondo have to play together as one pianist. There are many moments in this arrangement when a run is passed off from one player to the next. This brings up the discussion of two pianists having the same touch to bring the complete duet into unity.
