Here are my study video assignments for Lesson 2.
My self assessment for myself.
1. No change in playability from previous month. Same slow tempo,pauses, delays etc.
2. Music sheet reading ability improved.
3. Performing physical hand exercises, improve the finger and hand blood circulation, Over all better feeling of wellness.In exercise 20, my right hand middle finger was not responding at all to apply free stroke from its rest position. I recorded my exercise 20 video on Oct 13 with out middle finger activity.Today, you can observe that middle finger at least performed the free strokes in exercise 20 assignment.
4.I'll try to record UNE SOURIS VERTE study video again.Not happy with the result.

I'm ready for your comments, advice.
First in your pieces you are making good/correct note choices and not hitting any wrong ones. What I think you can work on most is your timing, getting a steady tempo, even if it is slower than what you are preferring to play. It would help you to use a metronome. Set it at 65 bpm. Adjust accordingly. Also, you might try practicing exercises WITHOUT looking at the left hand. That way you can just focus on playing, timing, expression, technique etc. and increase smoothness of playing. Good work this week.
