Hello, vibavi, and welcome to the forum.

I assume you are an early beginner and do not have a teacher, since you ask us to assess your practice.

It sounds like you are doing well identifying which notes to play. Your performance had an identifiable melody that was easy to follow and anticipate.

Much of the nuance and technique that turns simple notes into beautiful music is missing. Don't worry, that is the natural state of beginners such as us. If you do not have a teacher, you will need to find some method of discovering and learning the finer techniques of playing beautifully.

Most of the fine technique that I have learned has come from:
1. Critical listening: when I hear something that I do not fully understand, I study it and try to reach an understanding of just what made the song sound the way it did, and then learn the technique so I can produce that sound again;
2. Discussions on this Forum: There are frequent, high quality discussions on this forum about technique and artistry, that can be very beneficial to us beginners;
3. Youtube can be very helpful if you are a critical viewer. There is much to learn from watching the best, and watching their performances with the advantages of recorded video can reveal a lot. smile

Good luck to you, and, welcome to the forum.

Except for a few spots, the note accuracy is there. The melody is easily recognizable.

1. Sounded like some places may be a bit rushed.
2. Need to focus on the dynamics more (putting in loud & soft phrases and easing gradually from 1 to the other) to give the piece less mechanical feel.
3. The ending can be less mechanical such as lighten up your touch, slow down a bit etc. to let the listener know the piece is about to end.

Keep p the good work...

I am curious as to why you do not get yourself a method book and start learning to play by doing what they tell you to do in the book.

That will give you the basics a little at a time and keep building your skills.

The advice given before is quite good. But to perhaps show some more light on the situation I had a question. Are you playing this using sheet music, or are you playing by ear? Your version of the song does not quite sound like the same version I play, but I'm not sure that the sheet music I have is totally accurate as well.
