Oh gosh I don’t know! But at my local recital today we are really into Brouwer. Between my colleagues and myself and my teacher we played approximately 10-15 etudes. Haha. It was fun for us! Not sure if it was fun for the parents. But they were tapping their toes so yeah.
It’s amazing to watch your 2 videos in a row. You’ve made a lot of progress in a week. This is all around a great idea for a challenge! I’m working on Grade 5 and that has a Bach piece too. And I agree with someone else that your ornamentation is really nice!
What a terrific evaluation! Thank you for sharing! Wow! You play with such sensitivity and finesse. Your left hand technique is quite perfect from my vantage point. I agree with Simon that you have a natural affinity for speed.
I’m planning on checking a bag with my music stand, footrest, music scores, clothes, wine etc. My carry on will be my Gitbox. And then I’ll Uber from the airport to Beverly/Endicott. Right?
Oh this is just what I needed to hear. It will be my first time traveling with my guitar even though every vacation I’ve been on my entire adult life has me mourning my guitar. I bought a Visesnut travel case and a ‘case case’ for those who know what that is. I hope to put it in the overhead. I’m traveling Delta comfort. I’ll bring a pillow an…[Read more]
Yeah this is great, you guys! I also was not aware of Smith Brindle until the composer awareness club started which I have sporadically watched and read. I’m so proud of all of you who can stay on task and educate us! DuJu is the bomb! Still working on my excerpt in the Bouree in Em…haha. But now I want to try an excerpt in a Smith Brindle p…[Read more]
Thanks Dave! This is kind of an amazing challenge! I think I’ll do this with each piece I learn because there is always ‘that hard part.’ And breaking it up into chunks really helps. So here is video #2.
I didn’t think I was playing it any faster than my first video but listening to it again a week later shows me otherwise.

I would tell my younger self to stop resenting my parents who got me hooked on classical guitar and then suddenly couldn’t afford lessons. I would tell my younger self that it was a good thing to have to teach myself a few Sor, Carulli, and Guiliani studies, to discover and decipher tablature, to figure out how to play the chords and finger s…[Read more]
Another Guiliani Landler / DuJu morning concert all the way from Budapest! Fantastic playing! A very enjoyable brisk tempo and a perfect start to my day. Bravo to both of you!👏👏👏
Thank you for your gracious and kind comments Dave, Deb and Linda. Based on my own experience and perception, this challenge is rather genius… for me at least… because it actually forced my level decision.
This is my first rough practice video of the Bouree in Em in the level 5 repertoire. I’ve been going back and forth between levels 5 and 6 figuring out where to begin. I played the Bouree many years ago and grew to dislike it because it was quite difficult for me. I’ve been avoiding it ever since which is why I con…[Read more]
