Performers Name: Andrew Pavlik (Shortcircuit85)

Experience: 5 serious years, 4 "no-progress" ones

Song title/composer: Nocturne in Eb 9.2, Chopin

Source of music: Book that came with my Dig Piano

Instrument used: Casio AP38 Digital Piano

Additional information:
This song took 2.5 months of practice for me to get to this point. It's really the first serious classical piece I've ever finished and this recital was definitely the motivation I needed to finish something.
The piece is one I had been wishing I could play for years.
Recorded with a direct link from my headphone out to my mic input.

Performer's name: Laura D.

Experience: Started piano lessons Dec 30, 2004

Music Link: http://www.agicc.com/cenpenn/LauraDiabelliOp151No1.mp3

Size in MB: 3.6

Length MM:SS: 3:55

Title/Composer:Diabelli Sonatina in G Major, Op. 151 No. 1

Source of music: Sonatina Album, p.38, ed. Allan Small, Alfred Masterwork Edition, but played by memory (such as it is)

Instrument used: Wurlitzer 6'1" grand Recording method: microphone direct into laptop using Audacity

Confession: This is a slightly edited version. The first and third movements are from my first take, but the second movement is from the third take (I did three total) because 1. my son was talking and 2. it was midnight and I was too tired to try for a straight through run--I was only getting worse and 3. I flubbed up. If anybody really wants me to I will post the completely unedited first take, complete with me telling my son (age 19) to be quiet and quit talking and closing doors. Don't worry, no bad language.

Notes: The second movement is very fun to play because of the right hand crossing down to those low bass notes. My kids love watching me play it. I did the first movement in the first recital, not memorized,
http://www.agicc.com/cenpenn/DiabelliOp151No1Mvt1Laura.mp3
I am getting better, no matter how many problems I hear when I listen to my recordings. After listening, though, I really want to learn how to make it more beautiful. Partly the piano is very bright, but I notice all sorts of places where my hands are not perfectly synched, where the dynamic balance between the hands is off, where I need more legato, etc. This is a good experience to learn from!

Source of music: Sonatinas for Young Pianists (sheet)

Performers Name: Euan Morrison

Experience: October 2005, although played keyboard as a kid

Direct music link: http://www.euan1234.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk/lontano.mp3

Song title/composer: Lontano / Ludovico Einaudi

Source of music: Book

Instrument used: Yamaha Ydp-113 straight into PC, via the headphone socket.

Additional information: "A lethargic and smooth piece from Einaudi's 'Le Onde' album.
Instead of focusing on negative issues with the recording (of which there are many), I shall just mention a few positive things. Recording was on the 2nd take, which was a lot earlier than I predicted. The piece was also double the length of my last recital effort. I also forgot to switch on the reverb, which is quite a good thing - it was masking the sound. I think this attempt is an advance from my last recital attempt both in terms of sound quality and difficulty. Hope you enjoy it".

Performer's Name: Ed S.

Experience: On and off for 8 months or so -- self-taught.

Song title/composer: And So It Goes / Billy Joel.

Source of music: I downloaded a MIDI file of the song from somewhere on the 'Net, and printed some music from there to learn from.

Instrument used: Yamaha DGX-205 keyboard, recorded via MIDI, using the Music Masterworks XE program on the PC.

Additional information: This is the second song (of a grand total of two) that I've "learned". Please pardon the mistakes -- I found that I'm even worse than normal when trying to record myself.

Copper, I successfully saved the first zip file to my computer. When I click on it, though, I get a message that says Windows doesn't recognize it. Right-clicking didn't seem to work, either. Can you explain to the computer-illiterate of us how we go about unzipping it?

Thank you Copper!

Monica and everyone else who has trouble with the zip file; try installing this utility and see if it works:

Thanks, Bob! That worked, but only after I figured out that I needed to rename the recital file so that the extension was .zip rather than .php. Anybody else having trouble with it might want to try the same trick.
