READ ME FIRST: Rules & FAQ for the End-Of-The-Year Community Concert Challenge!

I am super excited to bring back TWO wonderful community activities at once: The Community Challenge and the Community Concert! For one month, we will focus on improving the pieces we want to play for each other TOGETHER and help each other to get to the next level!

The What:

  • We are going to focus on bringing one piece to concert level!
  • The aim is to practice them daily and post regular progress updates!
  • You choose how much time you will invest, but you commit to practicing them regularly.
  • A Community Concert featuring YOU! (date below!)

The When:

  • Challenge start: Thursday, Dec 1st
  • Holiday Community Concert: Dec 17th, 11am PST (Holiday Version together with Piano and Violin)
  • End-of-the-Year Concert: Dec 29th, 11am PST

The Fun Part:

  • At the end of our practice challenge, we will host two Community Concerts on tonebase LIVE
  • This is planned for Dec 17th and Dec 29th, 11 am Pacific 


Can I join the challenge if I wasn't there on Dec 5th?

Yes! Make sure you keep practicing daily and updating us at least twice a week.

I have a question, who do I ask?

Feel free to use this thread to ask any questions 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 this challenge?

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!

    Just seen this, I've had a very busy weekend and not looked at Tonebase for a few days. I will join in! See you tonight (UK time)

    I've just posted the link to the first community concert! It will be a very special one, as we will be joined by pianists and violinists as well!!

    That means that we won't have so many spots, but for the second community concert on Dec 29th, it will be just us, and we will have more spots available!

  • Count me in! I'll try to have a decision by tomorrow about which piece(s) I intend to perform. I won't be able to attend this afternoon's kickoff, but I think I can do the rest.


    So happy!!

    I am working on Cast Your Fate - V Guardi.  Jazz version from Earl Klugh on classical guitar.  Won't make the concert but will try to post a few takes once I get it into shape.

    martin do you have enough guitar participants for the Dec 17th concert? If not, I will play the Back Prelude from Cello Suite #1 BWV 1007.
