Sample daily update:
- Section you worked on: No. 1
- One thing you found easy: Learning the notes, and rhythms were rather straight-forward, and not challenging!
- One thing you found difficult: Playing the trills/ornaments in an elegant way was what challenged me the most.
Feel free to make these updates as short or long as you wish!
Here is my final video! I'm so happy to have participated in this challenge, it's been a GREAT experience! I almost felt like a student again, witch is something I have missed. Thank you Dominic ! And everyone else! Already looking forward to the next one!
This week I've worked on what I like to call "The extended version" that is the version Dominic played. It has some added parts and ornaments.
What I found easy was practicing the new parts, because it was so enjoyable!
What I found challenging was trying to make a perfect recording. It is 10 minutes of music, and some nerves did sneak in on the trickier parts.
Overall I'm satisfied with the performance :)
Final video of week3
What a wonderful experience! I am willing to participate in next challenges.
It has been difficult to make a video of the whole piece without mistakes, a real challenge!
One thing is to practice this or that section and another to play from the beginning to the end...
As Sindre says: already looking forward to the next one!
This has been amazing ! I have loved listening to everyone . Thank you !
I won’t bore you all with a video but I have been able to memorize (still shaky) the first waltz using Dominic’s memorization techniques . This is an achievement for me as I haven’t been able to memorize any music since childhood and I’m as old as dirt ! This memory stuff has been like a new toy for me , better than doing the crossword or playing some game on the phone ! Thanks Dominic !
