Alan Stuart - No file

Post by Matthew McAllister » Sat Feb 07, 2009 6:29 pm

Here is another performance from Alan, this time some Fernando Sor.

Having the chance to watch his performances is proving very useful to Alan as he can sit back watch his hands very clearly, see how they are working and with my help and guidance identify the things he needs to work on so he can continute to improve.

He now believes me that he is playing one too many open g's at the end of the main phrase in this lesson!



I have many students of varying ages, and standard, I have added a play list to my You Tube channel specifically for my students to take to the screen and enjoy sharing with you their performances.

I hope that you will take the time to have a look and offer considered and positive encouragement to some very talented and committed individuals.

Here is the link to the complete student playlist:

Hello Matthew, Hello Alan,

What a pleasure to see this video! I sense a real musical sensitivity growing there,

Best wishes, V :)

Lovely playing young man!!! You obviously have had good training and can look forward to many years of beautiful music with your guitar.

One piece of constructive criticism if you don't mind. Your LH pinky finger looks really, really tense. Do you feel that as you play? Does it ever hurt?

I have students who do that same thing and I think it's from concentrating SO HARD. Try shaking out your hand every once in a while and think about relaxing your hand every once in a while.

Keep up the great work!!!!

Tykve,

To what teaching method are you referring? The whole forum? Or the recording of the performance?

My students are enjoying the recordings very much.

It is good fun making them and the amount they are gaining from watching and listening back is vast!

Hi, Matthew,

I tried to watch Alan's video, but You Tube tells me it is no longer available. :( Thought you might want to check on it.

:bye:
