Thanks Carl. You caught up yet for the exam?

Well done Carl. You maintained good tempo and rhythm throughout and played it fairly well. Congratulations, and good luck on the exam.

Thanks. I believe I had my usual complement of hesitations and fumble-fingeredness, but overall not quite cringe-inducing, which was the bar I set for this particular piece.

I have incorporated your suggestions for Mi Favorita and hopefully will have an improved version for the final. It flows a bit better in places like the transition from measure 8 to 9, 12 to 13, and so on. I think the other thing you pointed out was my speed in measure 23, and I may have improved that too, but only a little. Also, my RH nails are a little grown out - even though I prefer to play without nails most of the time, I felt this piece really benefited from nails, more than most (or should I say, the lack of nails really detracted from it, more than most).

I thought I had my take, then I listened to a couple renditions from past students, and JFD's and realized I was making a reading error in Measure 33. Back to the drawing board.
