I am not. I found the recitals resulted in my putting far too much pressure and stress on myself, and it stopped being fun. Perhaps, at some point, I will try again. But I will be listening to the submissions, as always!

Yes- another David Lanz New Age piece - this one is called "Return to the Heart" - this version is somewhat simplified and slightly re-arranged (by me).

How about you?

Probably not. I dunno. Ive thought about subitting Zanarkand if I finish it in time, but Im not sure that I'll be able to. I'll be checking out all my pw friend's performances though, it's really fun.

To those in book 3, tonight I took a stroll down memory lane, I played through book 1 from the beginning to BTMD, Although familiar material I was able to read through it pretty much clean and in time. Will finish it tomorrow.

It really gives you a new perspective of where we are and where we have been...

PS: I even kicked BTMD's butt...lol

Ha Ha! I just did that yesterday too. It's always good to review - I was fine with BTMD but I had a little trouble with Lone Star, which is where I stopped. Will pick that one up again tomorrow.

So how is book 2 going mom3gram? What piece are you up to and how do you like it so far?

I just started "Solace", just the first couple of measures. It seems hard, but they all do until I get the hang of it. I like the pieces so far. I had no illusions of being able to play difficult classical or jazz pieces, so I am happy with, and having a lot of fun with, the "corny" pieces most people complain about. Every once in a while though, I feel like I'm way over my head, and that's when I go back and review book 1 like I'm doing now. It gives me a big confidence boost to see how far I've come.

Waltz - I plan on submitting something to this recital. Hopefully these plans won’t go awry.

Mark - I haven’t gone back and played anything from book one in a long time, but every now and then I like to listen to some of the recordings I made while working through it. Like you said; it really helps one see just how far they’ve come and can be very motivational.

I'm sure you will be playing pieces you never thought possible. Your hard work will pay off.

Take care!


Piano4 – How’s it going with “Moonlight Sonata” (1)? I was just getting to the point where I was starting to feel “familiar” with the first two pages, then I turned the page and “Oh my gosh!”; it’s a whole new ball game. smile

Just finished up Zanarkand a couple of days ago. I'm now learning Waltz in A flat Major by Brahms. It's clearly above my level, but fortunately not too long and somewhat repetitive. 4 flats though hmphh

Waltz - I bet that Brahms piece is a bit of a challenge as it changes key a little here and there. Glad to hear that you're prospering in your "life after Alfred". smile

Hi SmokestackLightnin, I've been working my way through the Aflred books with the goal of getting what I consider a "passing" recording of each and every piece. This has worked well from me and I wouldn't change it.

As for the "Graduate pictures", information on these can be found in the "Alfred Graduate" thread click here

Hello all smile

Ive been messing around with some new graduate signature tags. Inspired of course, and with all due deference to BazC's originals. These might be too large (or too rubbish) but hey ho. I was bored wink

Working on "Toreador Song" and continuing on with what will be a long relationship with "Moonlight Sonata". It seems to be taking me longer and longer to complete the pieces in A3. In part I guess that is to be expected, but it also has to do with the nice weather cutting into some of my practice time.
