Hi all,
Well done Jack. The Purcel minuet is harder (IMO) than the Kreiger and you play both really well.
As promised here are my submissions.
Slurs: I too am clipping the ends before anyone comments.. needs some work. With my limited practice time I tend to concentrate more on the pieces.

Tarentella: I had intended to crop the best one but in the end just include them all.

Improvisation: two versions (one has a rogue G#!!)

If you've managed to sit through all that then I have also posted a new Ecossaise (with a twist) for the last lesson.

Dear Geoff

:desole:
A further question to clarify please...about conditions for entering the exam. Do we need to have published a video of every piece requested by M. Delcamp? I know I have missed the odd one here and there. Does this mean to be eligible I need to go back to each lesson and, if I missed one of the requested videos, submit it before the exam date?
:merci:

Ned

The rules state that: "This exam is available for all students that have attended and published the required exercises for at least seven out of ten courses at the same level."
I too have missed a couple but I think I'm ok. The only way to tell will be to go back through each lesson and see what was posted, and yes you can catch up by posting before the exam date.
(I may have to post a Malaguena that I was so vocal about but never posted... :oops: )

Hi Ned,

Richard has got it exactly. And as he said, it's for a minimum of seven lessons, so you may still get away with one or two missed pieces as long as you have seven lessons fully up to date.

In answer to Jack's question earlier, and a lot more besides, I've just posted a guide here for any students thinking of taking the year-end exam, with an explanation of the essential steps you need to take beforehand.

Hi everyone,

I particularly enjoyed Jack's minuets and Richard's minuet and improvisation. Here are my final recordings for this lesson. For the Sanz I start with a version where I don't try to move the thumb from string 6 to 5 (although my head certainly moves!), then I try to use the thumb as instructed. Thanks for the help with the slurs Michael - I think this version is closer to how they should be.
I'm looking forward to the next lesson, but I can imagine my mind will be on the exam.....!

My procrastination has forced me to throw these two remaining videos together to complete what was asked of us. They are last minute and not very exciting but I was really surprised to see how quickly this months lessons came to and end. And unfortunately my right hand thumb is not visible in the recording of La Tarnentela.
I am also looking forward to the exam and the next lesson.
Good luck to all.
Jack

Hello all, I just realized this evening that the next lesson is tomorrow...well today. I just watched through everyone's recent submissions and it seems like everyone's improved quite a bit--more relaxed and more up-to-tempo. Here are my last minute submissions.
