WEEK 3: What We've Challenged!!!

WELCOME TO THE MAIN THREAD FOR THE THIRD WEEK OF "End of the Year" PRACTICE CHALLENGE! 

  1. Select Your Piece(s): Choose one or more pieces that you've learned this year. It could be something you've practiced through our live streams, a personal favorite, or a challenging piece you've conquered.
  2. Record Your Performance: Film yourself playing your selected piece(s). Quality doesn't have to be professional – it's all about sharing your progress and passion.
  3. Share Your Journey: Post your video in our community forum under the "End of the Year Challenge" thread. Include a brief write-up about your experience learning the piece – what challenges you faced, how you overcame them, and what this piece means to you. If you don't want to record yourself, show us a video of a piece you plan to take on in the next year!
  4. Engage with Others: Watch, comment, and encourage your fellow community members. Share your feedback, experiences, and celebrate each other's progress.

↓ Happy Sharing! ↓

  • Here is the third section of Carlevaro's Estudio No. 3 (Bicordes).  Carlevaro designates that this section is to be played "Meno mosso e calmo."  Next week I hope to post the fourth section and then try to pull it all together after the first of the year and before the challenge ends. Happy Holidays!

    • Blaise Laflamme Yes, it is challenging and clearly needs more work, but hopefully I will be able to put it all together by the end of the Challenge.

      Dale Needles Another impressive performance in this series, Dale. I can't wait to hear the entire piece altogether.

      Hope you and Suzanne have a great Christmas.

    • Andre Bernier Thanks, Andre. I agree Carlevaro's music, particularly those compositions that use a lot of dissonance, takes some time to appreciate them but well worth the effort.

  • Following Rick with a Christmas piece, yesterday I did a quick recording of an easy one from Roque Carbajo and composed years ago for his students...
