Elias, good first posts!
They are tough, the Dowland especially for me.Timing and note lengths take some real thought and effort to sustain and hold for proper duration. You do a pretty good job for first upload though some hesitations on the piece, but I think with more practice that will work itself out.
You do a great job with Tarrega arpeggio, though I do notice a little hesitation when playing the melody notes with the pinky.The fast tempo youv've set really makes you have to move fast to hit those notes without losing tempo.

Jack,

Very nice on all the pieces! Your "Jumpe" rocked! The Sor had a very Spanish character, you played it cleanly, evenly, at a good tempo, and the evenness of the arpeggio really tied it together. One small thing, the bass note near the end on the C IV barre is a C#, not a G#. The Tarrega was played well. Even the Paganini (which always seems to be a tough one for me for some reason) while it had some spots to clean up, was very sweet and musical.

Giuseppe, excellent job on the Jumpe - the Tarrega also was played perfectly at a quick tempo!

Jeremy,
Your Sor piece is very musical with good tonal variety and expression.This is one of my favorite Sor studies a beautiful composition that has a lot of room for personal interpretation. You also played the Tarrega study with confidence and this one,even though it's short, has a lot of emotional character with a truly romantic feel to it. Your Dowland is coming along nicely, and you use the arpgeggiated chords nicely to mix it up a bit.You play the notes correctly and with the right duration and timing.

Sometimes I feel like one of the judges on American Idol!Trying not to be the Simon of the bunch! :P

Elias, great sound and playing on the Dowland; your tone is great and the notes are articulated very cleanly. I suggest slowing it down to focus on rhythm, the catchiness or skipping feeling of the rhythm is so important for this piece.

On the Tarrega you have a good fiery sound! Here is a suggestion that I need to work on myself: force yourself to play the right hand arpeggio evenly into the next chord as if the left hand didn't matter. Let the right hand make the left hand keep up. You can begin this at a slower tempo and then make it faster as the left hand begins to understand that the right hand won't wait for it!

Hello everybody, I'm looking forward to participating in this lesson but I just got a new job as a choir director and I'm playing in a musical this week! This is in addition to my other musical obligations, so I hope to get something in by the end of the month. But, as the saying goes, when it rains it pours... :!:

It's that other musical stuff that always gets in the way - but good for you Michael!
