Narayan! I loved putting your fascinating voice with the face and music we’ve all come to know and love! Such energy; such exuberance; and such wonderful stories! You are quite the raconteur my friend. I must say I was quite relieved to learn that you actually didn’t burn your classical guitar. And like Kari, I cracked up when you said you joi…[Read more]
Hi Julie. I love the haunting dirge-like quality of this piece – fascinating! And it’s sounding quite nice already. I looked up “gnossienne” and was surprised to learn of its enigmatic etymological derivation.
I don’t think I ever mentioned that I met Scott Borg last fall when he gave the pre-concert lecture for one of our Marlow Guitar series…[Read more]
Hi Bruce. I noticed you are also working on BWV 999. In the event you haven’t yet seen this I’ll copy the link here, which I’ve found to be very helpful: https://youtu.be/fAQd3tHKdU4
Warm regards, Mark
Your composing blows me away Roger – sounding fantastic! Hoping the stress eases up for you. Preparing for a submission is always a stressful time. As the old adage goes, “Don’t let ‘perfect’ be the enemy of ‘good enough’”. Whatever you do, don’t push so hard that you risk injuring yourself (as I did – the dreaded tendonitis!). Warm regards, Mark

Congratulations on a very impressive performance Ben! The stability of both your hands, the ease with which you play and your musicianship here all evidence your prior experience. Truly enjoyable to see and hear.
Well done Mark! Congratulations. Lots of great dynamic and tonal variation in Birds especially. I thought it quite fitting that Rover started barking as a flock of birds flew past the window!
Thanks Drew. I enjoyed watching your coaching call with Connie on Un Día. It was before her masterclass so I’m looking forward to seeing that session as well. I love the piece. Linda and Simon helped me correct a couple of wrong notes and my coaching call with Simon was very helpful, so I’m looking forward to making a lot of improvements. Than…[Read more]
In my coaching call this evening Simon said he’d like to talk to me about my right hand based on videos I submitted for the last member challenge, so I’ll be there tomorrow and very much appreciate the opportunity to benefit yet again from his instruction. This is my first time participating in a live session so can someone tell me please if we…[Read more]
Goals for March 2019: Get to 65 bpm with p-i-m-a-m-i arpeggio; post a video of Sor Op 6, No. 8; memorize BWV 999; complete Unit 4 Intervals of my RCM theory course; post videos of Giuliani’s Group 7B and 8A.
