How did it go? Any fun pics you can share ;)
Brilliant, Sanne. What wonderful pictures of your building project. I get so excited when I see new updates.
I like the new fingerings you chose for the Adagio. They sound really nice.
And the harmonics in your tarrega are lovely.
I will miss seeing you at summer school too. Know that I would be jumping up and down to meet you.
I am so…[Read more]
Oh my goodness, Drew! I love the little doodles in your notes. 🤗
Now that is marking up a score! I don’t know, you still have some white spaces here and there you could eak out a couple more notes. Just kidding 😜
And a whole room you built for practice! Have fun hermitting away the hours in playful bliss. I want pictures.
I am looking forward to…[Read more]

I read a book last year recommended to me by Mark C2 titled “Peak: Secrets from the New Science of Expertise.” It talked a great deal about deliberate practice and something called mental imaging or representations.
It was a great read! I recommend it.
Thanks for sharing this video, it was fun to watch!
I like your strategy for attack! B4 is the hardest, you say?! I might have to exchange my A1 for B4 in the month of July to get a head start on attack ;}
Thanks for sharing.
I’m rooting for you to hit that 120 on B4.
Cheers, and I have to say it…
Julie got me thinking of the horizontal melody. So in response, I did an extra analysis on Section A, Upper Voice.
I concentrated on intervals.
Whew! I will have to complete the section A bottom voice after Summer School.
Gotta go practice!
Way to do the block chord approach. =)
That’s a cool way to hear the chord changes. Dave has mentioned this approach in coaching calls. It’s a great way to get familiar with the piece.
Thanks so much for sharing!
Thanks so much for posting your Part 1 analysis. I liked how you were looking at the inversions.
I look forward to your Part 2 work and no rush. A threw out a deadline of the end of this month. You have tons of time.
My hope is that many of you who are interested in this thread, do post your analysis.
Going through the analysis…[Read more]
