Hey Jeff thanks for the nice comments, so encouraging to hear.

He is a great talent and performer and I am a big fan, let me know it you would like to meet and attend as well. The…[Read more]
Thank you Magdalena, I appreciate your comments and the fact that you took the time to watch the video. This has become a favorite piece of mine and one I will continue to work on in the future.
Another wonderful podcast and interview. I was particularly happy to learn more about Glenn, since we have become good friends on line and I hope we can possibly meet one day at summer school. His efforts with the grade 2 forum have been very helpful and inspiring. The August challenge sounds interesting and I look forward to more information.…[Read more]

Beautiful and moving performance Linda.
Terrific journal update and good planning. This has been very helpful in organizing and planning my practices. I thank you for your diligence in maintaining your journal, it is inspiring as well as helpful.

I share similar problems with hips, and I find that if I practice in short segments, 15 minutes or less, I am able to get at least an hour of practicing daily. Another suggestion is to try a guitar support or cushion rather than a foot stool, which are known for aggravating back problems.
It seems that many of us have the same problems when it comes to videos. I decided to make videos to help me identify problem areas rather than to do them for posting in my journal and it does seem to take some of the pressure off while recording and it does help to identify problems and find solutions. One day I will get the courage to post…[Read more]
Great job David on the three pieces, thanks for posting the video. You are well on your way to grade three. I can’t imagine the amount of stress of doing three pieces on one video. Getting a good take of a single piece for the grade one exam was exasperating for me. It will be quite awhile before I will ready for grade two. I look forward to y…[Read more]
