FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

Can I join the challenge if I wasn't there on Nov 2nd?

Yes! Just make sure you keep practicing every day and updating us at least twice a week.

Do I have to participate if I just want to watch the concert?

No, a concert also needs an audience! While we invite you to use our newly created Practice Diaries, you don't have to perform in the tonebase Community Concert to watch it!

I have a question, who do I ask?

Feel free to use this thread to ask any questions you might have about this challenge! If you would prefer to ask something in a more confidential setting, please use my email: [email protected]

Can I do more than one piece for the Concert?

Absolutely! As always, this challenge is for you - do with it what you wish. As long as you 1) practice every day; 2) keep track of your progress; 3) share your progress with others - you are fully participating! Of course I won't be mad if this is too easy for you ;)
