Super job well done, today, guys! Keep it up!
You completed one piece, and your music reading/keeping the tempo is getting better, but your focus when learning a new(ish) piece should be a lot better! You’re a smart boy, you’re not fooling anyone.
Your music reading is getting better! Try to move your body as you play. It makes playing easier, and SOUND better!!!
“It’s never too late” – is a saying for a reason! It’s true!!! Try loosening up, moving to the rhythm IN THE CHARACTER of the piece you’re playing/practicing. Acting and being a successful musician are two sides of the same coin — they TELL A STORY! As you move/act, so does the sound, sound in the way that you move!
