Work in progress – an unfinished project that is still being added to or developed
As promised, or maybe more impended, here is another take on Etude No. 1 by Giuliani together with what I thought might have been my grade 2 submission programme: the Etude, the Andantino and the Allegro. Following the Netflix series…[Read more]

I’d like to play Sor Etude #1
Release: allow (something) to move, act, or flow freely
My week 5 upload, concentrating on the descending and showing the full exercise. The metronome is at 50, the same as last week, the goal being consolidation at the same speed and incorporating the advice of Nikis’. Here I am working on reducing movement in the…[Read more]
Thanks to you all for the nice comments and encouragements.
Yes Glenn, I have the tendency sometimes to be too early on the beat. After I while I notice it and have to slow down. A friend of mine playing jazz on the piano once complained that the metronome slows down when he plays slowly. I guess we have the same faulty equipment :).

Mauro Giuliani – Etude no. 1 – A baseline
If there is anything I really learnt from the Grade 1 exam is it that the set piece must be rehearsed to perfection. You can’t choose another one, it has to be there. So, here I am, my first upload after about a month of study:
There are lot’s of things still to work on like…[Read more]
Week 4 ascending at 55 bpm
Week 4 descending at 50 bpm
How is your speed developing? If you made any adjustments to your practice techniques last week, are your adjustments working for you?
My speed is developing but slower than I hoped. On the clips above you will see myself…[Read more]
I’m always recording on the iPhone. After several other ways of doing it I eventually just started to upload directly after recording to YouTube using the YouTube iPhone app. Once it’s uploaded it is then simple to trim the start and end in YouTube studio on whatever device you have.
But, if you want to major editing like separating or mer…[Read more]
Week 2 – 50 bpm – only ascending
The left hand wobble is back at this higher speed (I was at 40 last week).
For next week, make it clean, manage the descending as well. No further increase in speed until that is done.
See you then!
The metronome in this video is still at 40 bpm, the same as the last time. Actually, I am practicing at higher speeds (up to 47 this morning), but they do not come out clean. Therefore for the weekly, this time grainy upload, I went back to the speed of last week for the 16th notes in the crossing string…[Read more]
Thanks Niki for your review and advise.
I am struggling with the left hand as also evidenced in my Grade submission and I am using these exercises to do try to do just what you say; maintain the pinky closer to the fretboard. This is particular area where I clearly have been unconsciously incompetent. I did not even consider the left pinky being…[Read more]
