This is such a great idea! I too struggle with dynamics. I never thought of putting a story behind the music. Thank you for posting the video and your story. I’m stealing this idea!

@kkconroy Hi Kari, I just wanted to thank you for the note on my progress journal. I am going to test for level 2 this spring. Where are you currently?
I’m thrilled to hear you are going to give G2 a go this Spring. I’m cheering you on!
Currently, I’m working on G5. I hope to submit next fall during the September submission opening. Fingers crossed!
Wishing you many hours of fun (and yes, lots of practice and hard work…but we will stress the fun instead 😉)
I am currently working on the final pieces for level two. I’ve been watching some of the grade submissions for it to make sure I’m on track.
Today is November 9, 2019. This week I am working on smoothing out “A Simple Waltz” It still sounds choppy to me when I listen to my recordings of it.
Within the next six months,…[Read more]
Welcome! I could swear your introduction was copied from my background. I began learning guitar with a steel string and online lessons. After trying a couple of sites, I ended up with an online Skype-style one. The instructor had a classical background. I was intrigued by that and began classical lessons with her. I really liked her, but…[Read more]
Well done Bubble! I’m right there with you in testing for grade 2. Sometimes in private I feel like a champ and then the red light goes on and I’m a bumbling mess. I’m so happy for you. It was a great submission.
Thank you for starting this thread! I’ve been taking Skype lessons in a different online venue for a little over a year. I decided to start with level two after watching the level one lessons. Simon is much more detailed than my instructor was. I never practiced scales and never learned staccato! So I have work to do right off the bat. I really e…[Read more]
Thank you so much for the call this morning. Work has put the kibosh on time off in June. I’m so disappointed. I will apply for next year’s early and save my time off up for it. I’ll also have an additional week of leave added on next year. I’m going to lock myself in my office and whimper now.
Hi! I’ll go! I just need to clear the time off with work tomorrow. I checked on flights to Boston from Anchorage and I’m good there. I filled out an application, but I’m waiting to see if you just need the entire amount of money instead of the $100.
If someone else was first, I’m happy for them, but if not!!!
I’ll go!!! I just need to clear the time off with work tomorrow, but I don’t foresee a problem. I checked on flights and I’m good to get to Boston. Let me know! I’ve email Simon as well.
I just realized today that I had more messages. I’m so excited to have another Alaskan here! I live up on the Palmer side of Hatcher Pass. I come to Anchorage about once or twice a month. I would love to have coffee and talk classical guitar. I’m pretty new to it, but eager to improve. I have to come in on Friday, May 10 and Thursday May…[Read more]
