Thanks Bobpickle!

I'm still struggling away here. Right hand melody, no problem, left hand chords? Some one shoot me!

I would swear my left hand has decided it no longer belongs to me and is doing whatever it pleases! Ugh. I keep plugging away hoping it will start to click soon. frown

I agree with Recared, Becca just go real slow, like snail slow lol, that way you should be able to play through the whole piece making minimal mistakes, then when you've got it, speed up a little at a time. That's how I've taken Gnossienne 7, and it's been a real help.

Thanks guys. Appreciate it. I'm doing that with maybe one mistake per hand right now. I'm hoping by the end of the week I can put hands together.

Great advice! Slow is the only way to go. I've done a few audio recordings to check my progress and realized I have to slow down even more. One of the biggest challenges for me is getting the dynamics right. Doing audio practice recordings is revealing. I still have a lot of work to do!

Gnoss. 6 is proving more difficult than I'd imagined. At the moment it feels like I'm just 'playing the notes', hard to dredge up any emotion.

When is the deadline?

I've got myself left behind I think with G3. I'm simultaneously trying to:
get all the notes in the chords right, sounding even and at the same time.
stop those chords sounding too loud and louder than the bell bass.
keep the pace going through the bits where I have to look at the music then at the keys in an attempt to hit the right notes when leaping around.
make the melody sound effortless and floaty above a would-be lilting chiming accompaniment!

I've been advised to learn to play the left hand part BY TOUCH ALONE but am also finding this difficult!
I'm glad I'm not the only one who needs more time before they're ready!

Oh, would have loved to try this! I don't play much classical music. (Well, I don't *learn* much. I try to sight-read basic stuff.) Unfortunately my Cert. IV doesn't end until November 20. frown
Is there anything coming up for December or January?


I love sight-reading! One day I will master it.

I have really bad news. I won't be able to finish my piece. frown I've managed to re-injure my hand ( I have carpal tunnel) and am back in a wrist brace. I can only play very simple things for short periods of time.

I won't be able to finish my Satie piece anytime soon. frown

Is there someone one willing to try my piece to complete the recital?

Sorry guys. I feel so crappy but I know pushing this will only cause me to be unable to play for months.

BeccaBb, I adore Satie and while regretting the circumstances that lead to you not being able to do it in time, I would be happy to take over the piece. Gymnopedie 3, right? Now, what am I supposed to do and by when?

Dipsy, are you doing Gymnopédie #2 or #3? The list says you're doing G2, but here you mention G3. I'm happy doing either one; I just need to know which one to learn and submit.

Becca, I'm sorry about your injury. Definitely take care of yourself and you'll be back up to speed before you know it. You are doing the right thing! Don't feel bad about that.

Thanks PianoStudent88 for taking this on!

Wayne, I'm glad you've extended it to the end of November. I should definitely be ready by then! smile
