Thank you, Robert. I would like to pass your contact information on to the Board Member who is working on this project so that he can reach out to you. Would you be willing to message me your email address?
Laurie – Good work! You look really happy in the photo.
I hope you enjoy your recital. Our music is meant to be shared. And give that 7 year-old loud applause. The kids tend to be fearless.
How is your new guitar treating you?
See you in a few weeks.
Robert – The salon sounds successful. I am hoping to get that started in St. Louis in the next year. It is impressive that you can organize one on a monthly basis. Congratulations!
See you in a few weeks.

One of my goals from my Grade 6 evaluation is to increase the tempo when I play to actual performance tempo. I was able to demonstrate this successfully in my coaching session with Simon when we continued to work on the Bach Cello Suite #1 – Allemande. But as soon as we starting adding dynamics and phrasing it was as if my fingers…[Read more]
Mark – Thank you for sharing this. I am currently immersing myself in Cello Suite No 1 (just yesterday worked with Simon during coaching on the Allemande) and will be focusing on it for most of the next year. I read Eric Siblin’s book almost 10 years ago and recommend it. I have Yo-Yo Ma’s other recordings and I will probably add the 2018…[Read more]
Mark – It sounds as if the Classical Guitar folks planned an extraordinary trip for all of you. I am sure you are pleased it was not cancelled due to lower than hoped registration. Thank you for sharing your adventure.
Rene has a number of classes already available on Tonebase (Yes, I know a competitor but it is a different model. And they are supporting our local classical guitar organization by purchasing print ads for our local programs).
I suggest that he offer something unique for CGCA, if possible.
Ramesh – I use an old photography tripod that I have had for more than 30 years. I bought this adapter on Amazon in 2017. It currently sells for $6.95.

Like Ben, I have been using my Iphone and the MV88 attached to a tripod. Super easy and I can edit with iMovie.
What do you all think about adding a line (like standard boilerplate) when we post a video that indicates what equipment we used to make the recording? It would help all participants, especially newer members, to learn more about the…[Read more]
I have heard some youngsters perform with amazing tone on Pavan instruments.
Here is a video that will give you an idea of the instrument. Kirk Hanser is Executive Director of St Louis Academy for Guitar and runs a local Childbloom Program. He is also the guitarist for the St. Louis Symphony – mostly…[Read more]

We have been traveling in the Pacific Northwest for the past 10 days and will return to St. Louis tomorrow. This has been the longest time in several years that I have traveled without a guitar so there is no progress there to report. But we have had a wonderful time visiting our daughter in Seattle and enjoyed several days of hiking…[Read more]
Congratulations and thank you for sharing the evaluation. I also completed Grade 6 this submission and have a lot to work on as I move ahead.
I joined CGC 2 years ago and started at the lowest level after having worked with a private teacher for several years. I had feedback in my initial submission (which I felt was boring at the time…) that…[Read more]

I wish that I had not stopped playing in college, but in truth, I don’t know how I could have done things differently.
Other things were higher priority: College and Graduate school, start of career, change of career, 5 years of night school for MBA while working full time, two children, two demanding careers, four aging parents hundreds i
