Hi Bob,

The First Noel ~|~ Oh Holy Night (medley) in Key of C smile

Final answer *giggle* Thanks.

~~Sharon smile

BTW: Re-enlisted (for another year) with Pianomagic last ight. thumb yippie Mike Anderson is just a trip - so great. I played some stuff for him - was shakey and nervous, but more calm than I used to be - he's just a person, afterall. Plus, I had more patience with myself... was not in such a rush. And I was more forgiving of my mistakes... This I call progress.

Is "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" taken...if not, then I'm on it. Just a simple, straight version with some personal voicing added.

Oh dear me - (blowing bangs out of my eyes) - it looks like a few people have picked Oh Holy Night. I was just playing the first noel and OHN went into a smoother transition - a better fit on the turnaround.

We'll see.

Great idea, Bob. Count me in!

I'm going to join in the Holiday Recital — my first recital ever, I might add — with a simple beginner's version of "Silent Night." And maybe a second song, if I feel brave and make good progress. It's liable to be another old-fashioned Christmas song that many others are doing ... but that's not such a bad thing, right? Carols are beautiful. smile

Deborah, carols are beautiful, plain or dressed up.

It's nice to sit at the piano and play tunes you are familiar with... and carols ROCK!

Looking forward to hearing you play. thumb

Since it's only 6 more weeks and I still haven't practiced my chosen piece (River), I'm thinking it'll be a good idea to pick Silent Night as a backup piece. wink

i still have 8 measures to brush up, 8 measures left to learn. so i have 16 measures left to get up to speed by recital time. i havent practiced much because i have been sick....went to the doctors only to give me breathing treatments, and with a prognosis of i will get better in about a month. ARGH!!! just give me some antibiotics and get on with it!!! anyhow, not ready and hopefully i can practice in my dreams because i am not at the bench much just flipping through the channels and nestled on the couch. lots of cnn on and discovery. anyhow i still wont say what my recital piece is but its not a carol but still a christmas piece:)


If it ain't fun I ain't doin' it:)

Ok, let's see if I get myself trapped - I might have a recording device now, because last week I bought a new laptop, it has a built in microphone and an MP3 recording software. I haven't tried it out, but should be able to find some time on the weekend....

Last excuse: my piano is not tuned...(heating season just started have to wait two weeks) laugh

If it works I'll submit "Sylvester bells" or "New year's bells", composer unknown. The German title is "Silvesterglocken".

Gone into hiding, Patty


In love with life

I started practicing my Holiday Song way back in August. Kind of silly when the temperature was in the high 90's, and I'm playing about chestnuts roasting on an open fire. laugh

There was no way I was going to procrasinate (something I do quite often now that I am retired, hey...I got all the time in the world).

I have a lot of polishing to do and hope it will "shine" by recital time.

I am still seriously thinking about doing it in sections if I start on the blundering trail.

I'm not sure what you mean by the blundering trail but I know that I "know" my piece but I still blunder.... Getting a recording of my piece is going to be a challenge.


It's the journey not the destination..

I may have to retire the piece I was going to do, and record something else... This thing is giving me fits! There is some time, tho, so we will see....

I know the feeling, Mak. I am still having timing issues with my piece. I can play it correctly to the metronome at MM = 50. Only problem is, I'm supposed to be playing it at MM = 84. eek And there's only about a month left.... double yikes. Unfortunately I don't have another holiday piece as a backup.

I can play thru it- mostly. It's supposed to be very slow and that helps some, but it's still way too choppy sounding. Luckily, I do have the book of fairly easy Christmas arrangements that I have been working a few other pieces out of, so I would have some backup...

Does anyone know of an intermediate arrangement (or early-int.) of 'Somewhere In My Memory', the John Williams song from Home Alone?

I've been humming it for days and would like to see if I could get it going for Christmas...Liz

Lizzy,
Go to sheetmusicplus.com or musicnotes.com and search on john williams. He has composed so much stuff you will have many options. You might prefer musicnotes for this because you will be able to preview most of the options and see which one best suits your needs. Plus, you will be able to download it immediately and start learning it today. I guess we can assume this is your official commital to the upcoming recital?

Thanks, Dean. I checked out sheetmusicplus yesterday and, yes, was overwhelmed with John Williams stuff, but not able to see anything to judge levels. So I'm headed over to musicnotes now...

Recital? Silly boy.

Seriously, I have no way to get it on-line - I'm putting it on my New Year's resolution list, however, so maybe spring? Liz

This is how we did it last time, Schubertian. I assume this time will be similar:

Hi Bob,

I just sent you my first recording,
Prelude in C from Bach.

ok - so I have finally figured out how to record my playing. Then I figured out how to get it to BoxNet. Now, how do I submit it for the recital - or is it even appropriate for the recital (it's not classical - it's not Christmas - and it's not perfect)?
