ABOUT TONEBASE COMMUNITY CONCERTS:

These events are NOT live-streamed OR recorded, but are private zoom meetings where tonebase members can share their hard work and perform for each other! 

These concerts can be played LIVE, or if you can't attend, you can submit a recording!

This is a GENEROUS and SUPPORTIVE space.

Performing is one of the best ways to push yourself, and really evaluate the work/progress you have made!

Repertoire is open to any piece!

Memorization is NOT required.

You can play select movements, or even sections of pieces! No need to perform a complete works!

Playing the guitar is fun, but sharing your music with others is one of life's great joys. Join in on the fun and cheer each other on!

FOR OPTIMIZING YOUR ZOOM SETTINGS PLEASE SEE THE SHORT VIDEOS BELOW!

Because we use zoom for these concerts, it is important to have the best audio and visual settings available!

    I'd like to take part put as I'm coming from a completely different genre I would not be confident in playing for others at this time.

      martin I'll try to play something but I get nervous when playing for others. I've only dabbled with classical pieces years ago, mainly Romance De Amor and Cavatina which I used to stumble through but now have completely forgotten.

      Ray, a quick tip: practicing something just below your current level can boost your confidence and comfort level. Though it's vital to challenge yourself, performing in front of an audience can unveil new dimensions of a piece. Keep up the good work!

  • I think I would like to take part in this session. I am preparing two new pieces, but they won’t be ready by then…. (Mertz/Dyens). So, for this concert I’ll probably choose one of the 2 Vila Lobos pieces I’m now working on in the VL Challenge … Or a renaissance piece by Francesco Da Milano. tbc

      martin , and all,  my appologies, I will not be able to join due to a last minute conflict. As I continued working on HVL Etude 1, here is a new recording of it that you can play, however please prioritize those present on the call who may want to play live.  Thank you.

    Apologies for not making this recital. I was unsure what local time(Ireland) that it was starting. My zoom meeting said 19:00 but day light saving time could have pushed it out by 1 hour. here is a video of my performance. Still struggling with some areas but it is slowly improving.
