      En vista de que tocar con los pedales es una habilidad subdesarrollada para todos los organistas principiantes, la vasta mayoría de ellos sufre la tentación de mirarse los pies al tocar los pedales. No obstante, esto debe evitarse porque inhibe el progreso técnico del organista. Así como al tocar con los dedos se aconseja mirar hacia la partitura y no a los dedos, lo mismo se aplica para los pedales. En el presente artículo te proporcionaré la guía para tocar bien las notas de los pedales sin mirarte los pies.

      Anota la “pedalización”. Para evitar confusiones y pedalización irregular, lo cual conduce a equivocaciones y tensión innecesarias, te recomiendo encarecidamente anotar toda tu pedalización. Hazlo anotando los signos de punta y talón (con pie izquierdo o derecho). Si anotas la pedalización habitualmente, comenzarás a percatarte de los patrones predecibles que te ayudarán a tomar las decisiones correctas incluso cuando no hubieses anotado la pedalización. Hazlo al menos hasta que te sientas confortable tocando composiciones barrocas con la pedalización correcta. Para música de órgano romántica y moderna es mejor anotar la pedalización en todos los casos.

      Emplea la anticipación de pedal. Ésta técnica aumentará enormemente tus capacidades para tocar con los pedales. Simplemente prepara por adelantado tu pie para tocar la nota siguiente. Por ejemplo, tan pronto sueltas una nota del pedal, trasládalo inmediatamente a su posición para la siguiente nota. No toques aún ésta nota, desde luego, mas permítele a tu pie yacer y aguardar por su turno. Con el fin de implementar ésta técnica correctamente, se la debe practicar continuamente.

      Es una técnica muy potente que automatiza tu ejecución de los pedales sin necesidad del pensamiento consciente. Ello minimiza dramáticamente la posibilidad de cometer errores y no necesitarás mirarte los pies durante tu interpretación. Al principio hallarás complicado recordar la posición de la siguiente nota. En éste caso anota tu pedalización anticipada entre paréntesis. Posteriormente, con el progreso de tu técnica de pedal, comenzarás a sentir la siguiente nota por adelantado y no requerirás pensar en la anticipación en absoluto.

      Si pones en práctica mi consejo y anotas tu pedalización y empleas la anticipación de pedal habitualmente durante tu práctica diaria, tras unos breves meses observarás que la tentación de mirarte los pies desaparece gradualmente. Esto sucederá porque te habrás familiarizado con tu pedalero más que antes.

      Si te interesa perfeccionar tu técnica de pedal un recurso invalorable es “Organ Technique, Modern and Early”, de George Ritchie and George Stauffer.

    Hi there! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble
    with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I
    ended up losing months of hard work due to no data backup.
    Do you have any solutions to protect against hackers?
