  1. Another great podcast Roger. It was a delight to meet you both at the Virginia Meetup! Tim, really cool to get to know you better in this podcast. I love Eastern Market! Le Pain Quotidien, Peregrine Espresso, THE Eastern Market itself and Tortilla Cafe are all places I have fond memories of.
    Bravo in taking opportunities to perform in front of others, especially on the porch in front of strangers passing by! The experience will pay dividends for you in the future.
    I wish you much success as you pursue your goals. May all your pieces season with excellence.

  2. The addition of segments with Simon and Dave are a great addition to your podcasts. It sounds as if you had a wonderful visit with Tim. Another enjoyable interview. We all have such varied backgrounds yet have landed at the same place as part of the community of CGCA.

  3. Another great interview with my standmate for Majestic! I love Tim’s plan of reviewing previous repertoire and playing those in home concerts. I always thought that those “basic” pieces wouldn’t be good for playing to people, so it was great to hear how well they’re received. I had just started going back through some pieces and this gives me more motivation to do that! Where’d you guys go for lunch?

  4. Thanks Roger for another awesome podcast. I was one of the people who got mixed up with the Metronome Challenge and really appreciated the directives from Dave. My favorite part of Tim’s interview is his use of the beginner level pieces in house concerts for friends and family. As we grow in our playing it is wonderful to revisit these pieces and add depth in ways that we couldn’t do when we first played them.

  5. Thanks for listening all and a great month with CGC with the Virginia meet up and doing the podcast with Roger. I’ll have to move my sidewalk playing down to Eastern Market. Maybe even get enough change to pay for lunch (ha).

  6. It was good to hear more about you, Tim. However, I was surprised the topic of Minions as mascots didn’t come up, since you and Roger seemed to have that as a common interest… Also, getting a bit more background from Dave on the metronome challenge was also great. I previously wasn’t quite sure where it was heading after the scales or arpeggio focus. Cheers… Richard

  7. The podcast just keeps getting better… The new segments alone are worth the listen for us CGCA kids and the interviews are always a treat. Thanks for welcoming us into your basement, Tim! :-)

  8. Greetings,

    Great podcast with Tim. Listening to the conversation invited a sense of comfortable space. I must say I love the sound of the house, wooden floors, beams, and footsteps. Tim’s journey is interesting and meaningful, thank you!
