Hello, I have my senior recital today, and I'm supposed to play the Mozart sonata in F major. I haven't looked at the piece yet, but I'm not so worried because Mozart doesn't sound so difficult. Anyone have some quick memorization tips that I could use to memorize quickly and efficiently?

Teach the music to some flatworms. Then grind up the flatworms in a blender and drink it. You will pick up the piece from the flatworm juice.

BTW, I've been invited to play in the Super Bowl but I don't know any of the plays and haven't played football in a while. Any tips? grin

Yes, at all costs avoid a wardrobe malfunction.


Do or do not. There is no try.

The recital was great! Don't know why he was worried about the Mozart when he had the Liszt Tarantella and Scriabin 5 on the program!

Good to hear. Didn't he have to play a recital jury? We always do at my school.
