WEEK 6: What We've Achieved!!!

WELCOME TO THE MAIN THREAD FOR THE LAST WEEK OF THE "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! ↓

    Sor Etude op.6.6.  (Yes That one)

    Well, after my fairly successful recording of BWV 1009 I thought I would try this Etude again. This went much better. Still lots to work on but I am relieved it all went fairly smoothly.  I have frequent difficulties on the opening ascending and descending thirds, especially the leap right after the descent begins. I can it play pretty consistently isolated and usually play it during the piece but if I mess it up once I can't get it out of my head whenever it returns. Oh well, the work continues. I do feel ready to focus much more on phrasing, assuming my wife (and dog) can stand listening to it anymore.

      Dale Needles Thanks Dale. I seem to be back on track for modest accomplishments and advancements. I felt I had really hit a wall and was seriously backsliding. I feel I am improving again, slowly but that is ok.

    I've just posted this in Week 5 - didn't realise we were in week 6. I set off practising no 17 with good intentions and although I have been practising it I didn't get round to posting a video. so here is one that I managed to fdo today. Not as good as I would have liked but I will keep working on this.
