Awesome practicing this week and/or focusing in the lessons today, guys!
All of that ‘Take Me Out to the Ballgame’ practicing wasn’t all for naught, Samuel! For Mothers Day, and any other opportunity you might have to perform ~ please do! The ‘Art of Performing’ is like any other task one might undertake — the more you practice it, the better you get at it!
Horizontal/circular motions with your body and hands. Use different hand/finger articulations for different musical textures and moods. FEEL THE RHYTHM!!!
Excellent practicing in slow motion the harder sections of your pieces, today. And, don’t forget to ALWAYS move to the piece’s rhythm. Keep it up!
You’ve been a real trooper these past few months. Be patient, practice, and you will soon have these two songs under your belt.
