Judy, I'll try D03 and D04 together in this September.
Ken, you absolutely should do both D03 and D04 in the same year. You are more than well-positioned and ready to do both levels at the same time. I think you will really enjoy the musical experience and challenge of aiming to perfect twice as many pieces.

I agree that listening to and watching other players, including your playing, is helpful and I can learn a lot from doing just that. Moreover, Colin mentioned in another post, that next year, mp3 submissions will no longer be acceptable for either the exam submissions or the monthly lesson submissions. That will ensure that I will not miss out seeing the actual playing technique of some of the good players, like your colleague Patrick and the student tutor Francoise, both on the French board, who preferred mp3 recordings for the lessons.

Colin, you are absolutely right about Ken being an excellent tutor, but he has already achieved that status.
Yes I agree, but I meant as an official forum status so newcomers would recognise him as such.

Yes, I’m hoping Mike will do D04 and David Florea might return if there are enough students. If you can manage 3 & 4 together that would be great, most people are defeated by the sheer amount of recording time needed, so Mike has done really well.
Have a look through the material and see how it goes.

Congrats to everyone for successfully completing the D02 exam, and a special recognition for Ken's excellent performance. I have really enjoyed participating with all of you this past year. I'm also very happy to hear that Ken may be joining me in D04. His dedication inspired me in D02, making me want to play better!

I'm going to look at the D05 collection and I may try to tackle it, along with D04, if it seems like I might be able to handle it.

Wish me luck - I'm submitting my D03 exam today!

:merci:, Mike.
Believe me you don't need a luck because you will do great on D03 exam. :okok:
I was a kind of pushed to do D04 by french members, tutors and moderators. :chaud:
I'm not confident on D04 but I will try my best. :?
It is funny I uploaded current D04 exam piece on french forum before the exam schedule announced. I might have passed D04 exam also. :lol:

Yes, IMO the D04 exam is not difficult. In fact, I learned it last month. I am looking forward to the rest of the D04 music :casque:

Nesta Rua was an enjoyable piece to learn and play. However, I'm never satisfied with my final submissions. There is always something I wish I had done better.

Mike, you know how the saying goes - the pursuit of perfection is the greatest obstacle to productivity, or in the classical guitar world, the pursuit of perfection may be the greatest obstacle to submitting a really really good final piece.

Your submissions Mike, were really really good.

Great playing, Mike. :bravo:
Congratulation on your new guitar! :ouioui:
Your Elias Bonet Monné sounds very warm and full. It sounds more resonant than 20th anniversary to me.

I think you need to correct your signature because you put name wrong. I believe it is Elias Bonet Monné. :shock:

Quatre Accords sounds so natural and I can feel you are familiar with these chords.
You could have enjoyed more on Ejercicio No. 6, if you practiced more time. Nevertheless, it is too good to be a result of 30 mins practice. Please, have a look on lesson 10 that I uploaded. :bye:
