  • Hi, I enjoyed playing this piece as it is nice to perform a gentler more emotional song. It gave me a feeling of imagining and enjoying some outside space and tranquility in these times of spending so much time indoors.  


    With the repetition of notes I often found myself adding some small dynamic and tonal variations across a bar (as I imagined wind and sea feel and sounds) but keeping inside the overall guidelines of the stated structure.  Thank you for sharing your compositions with us.


    Kind Regards,

      Dennis Greensmith Hi Dennis! This is great - I had exactly the same feeling as you as I was practicing it. And well done on the small dynamic and tonal variations, that's exactly what I think the composer wanted use to do within this piece. I will pass your thank-you to him! I'm sure he will enjoy hearing about it in our watch party at the end of the challenge, on December 19th.
