Very nice job Bill - as always. I particularly liked your version of the Valtz.

Hi Eva,

It appears the video is marked as 'private' so it will not play. You will have to go to your youtube account and mark the video as 'public'. In case you are not familiar I think this is how to get there:
Login to your youtube
Go to My Channel from the left pane
On the top of the page go to Video Manager
Find the video that you are trying to post and select 'Edit'
Under the basic information section it will say 'private'. Simply change that to 'public' and save it. It should work then.

I hope that helps.

Thanks,
Bill

Oh! Thank you! I believe now it is ok

Thank you :)
I need some advice on how to effectively use the metronome. I unfortunately always find it very confusing

As Bill has said, your video is marked as private. So I was unable to view it to add it to the qualifying exam submission list. Please either post here once you have updated the video rights or send me a message to let me know that you have fixed it and I will update the submission list.

Thanks,
Hello! :)
I think that now it is ok
Thank you :)

I agree it can be challenging. I often find myself listening to the metronome and not paying attention to what I am playing. One trick I use is to first set it to the desired tempo, and then just listen to it for a while. Tap your foot to the beat to help internalize it. Then play the music without the metronome on, and see if you kept the beat.

Dennis, you're definitely the best running guitar, good job, congratulations;
David, beautiful work, congratulations;
Eva, congratulations on your effort, only a small detail, in the exercise of the scale does not give the fair value of the notes, do not forget you are black and eighth notes, and you just play eighth notes ;
Bill, in good time for your work, only one comment, I think in the waltz at the end of bar 12 play some notes over;
Mark, you can say, I can only congratulate you.

Dennis, sin duda eres de los que mejor ejecutan la guitarra, muy buen trabajo, felicidades;
David, hermoso trabajo, felicidades;
Eva, felicidades por tu esfuerzo, sólo un pequeño detalle, en el ejercicio de la escala no das el valor justo de las notas, no se te olvide que son negras y corcheas y tu sólo tocas corcheas;
Bill, en hora buena por tu trabajo, sólo un comentario, creo que en el vals al final del compás 12 tocas unas notas de más;
Mark, que te puedo decir, sólo me queda felicitarte.

- page 56 Niccolò PAGANINI (1782-1840) VALTZ
Take care to damp the bass notes properly from the second quaver (eighth note) of the bar. This piece consists of two sections which are repeated, so it has an A-A-B-B structure, also called binary form. You can make particularly good use of the repeat if you aim to give it a different feel each time. Thus you could play the B section in a non-conclusive fashion the first time round, and in a conclusive fashion the second time.
Hi classmate
The teacher said play the B-section in a non-conclusive fashion the first time round, who can tell me what is the "non-conclusive fashion" and the "conclusive fashion ". How to display it? and damp the bass notes ,is that mean after you play A then you put your thumb on the sixth string to damp the E. Thank you very much! :merci:

Hope everyone is doing fine and looking forward to hear your recordings
Dennis,

You were brilliant on those pieces. Amazing work ! So nice to see your fingers glide on the fretboard. You looked confident on each of your pieces and they sounded very melodious. I especially noticed the damping, you did not miss even one. I personally hate damping :( Takes a lot of effort.

Overall stellar performance :bravo:

Hello Eva,

I thought you played your pieces very well. You seem pretty relaxed and confident in each of your pieces which is really nice. The movement of your fingers around the fretboard is very smooth which gives you a lot of time to structure your notes to sound them melodious.

Good Work !
