Thank you for the comments. The peripheral vision tip is very interesting. I'll need to find a music stand.

Andrei,
Again, it sounds like you have played the Sick Tune piece for months not days. I could not find anything to pick on.

Colin,

Good playing. All the elements are there, just need some more refinement. You may also want to repeat sections as indicated on the sheet.

Hey Colin, I like your submission. Improvisation is interesting and nontrivial, Andantino is played properly (but without repeats though as Chu mentioned). Also, I like your right hand technique.

Colin, Chu, Andrei, you're all doing great. I've been working on the pieces for two weeks and will post them soon.

Thanks folks. Yes I decided not to do the repeats until I am more proficient.

Interesting you should mention right hand Andrei, I’ve been paying special attention to it recently.

My recording of D04 L2 Part 2 Anonyme The Sick Tune (1600).
I like the piece a lot, but I find it harder to memorize pieces that have variations on the same harmony.

Here's D04 L2 Part 3 Giuliani Valse Op 58 No 3. The first part is a nice octave study.

Hi John, that'a a lovely improvisation. I think you could even use notes from different octaves :)

Possibly, but it seemed to me that the assignment was for those four notes in 0/I position :)

This is pretty good, John. I like how you keep trebles ringing as long as possible. In part 2 some shifts are done a little bit too early (0:30 - 0:31).
Your playing is very relaxed which is good I guess :)

Yes, I'll need to work on this. It's difficult to keep time at times.

Pretty fluent playing, RH finger alternation is great. I think the bass line could be a bit louder though (I've got a similar problem, working on it). Also, some damps are missing, but with soft bass line it is unnoticeable.
