Working hard getting my recital piece ready for April 1. Part of my self-assigned homework was making a video to see if I could stand up to the pressure of the camera watching me play, lol.

Sounds really good.  Very nice trebles.

Good job.

 

Opportunity is often missed because it wears suspenders and looks like hard work.

Sounds great Mandy.

If I had a criticism it would be that it's sounds slightly rushed. If you're like me, when you're playing in front of an audience you'll speed up, so it might be as well to practice at a steadier pace. 🙂

Thanks, @Uzi , @1stimestar & @Jim Dunleavy 😀 I think you're right that I am rushing through this. I tend to start playing it faster when I'm in front of the camera compared to how I play it during practice. I definitely play it slower when I practice with my teacher, we keep it all at the slower bouncy hornpipe speed. Her guitar playing keeps me from trying to speed it up, lol.

Something a little amusing/annoying is someone slapped a copyright claim to the audio of Harvest Home on my video... I don't know if it's something Youtube does with an imperfect program that checks these things, or what (my playing isn't good enough to make it seem like I'm playing so someone else's recording, lol). Either way, I'm disputing it since I'm clearly playing with my own squeaks and all, lol.

I had exactly the same problem when posting my piano recordings (of classical pieces by long-dead composers).

I disputed it, and the claims were dropped. It happened for every video I posted. I reckon there are copyright sharks on youtube out claiming anything that isn't tied down as theirs, so they can collect advertising revenue from other peoples' videos - they back off as soon as challenged.

That kind of sounds like what it probably is. It said the copyright "holder" would "allow" me to keep my video posted, but they would have ads added to it and collect the money from them, haha.

Great job Mandy. Keep up the hard work. 🙂
Your recital will go very well, I'm sure.

Mandy,

Great playing your progress is amazing!   violin_girl

Just a note on the copyright issue, I had to do some research on it and the fine for one infringement is $190,000.00 that's a disturbing amount of judgement in my opinion but is the copyright law. Just so folks are aware why the group project Fiddlerman sponsors, he always check for copyrights and get written permission from the folks who have them.

Thanks, @Mark and @CyndieZ 🙂 

I was talking to my teacher about the recital after my lesson yesterday, and since it isn't at the normal time of year it's going to be a little different than the first time around. First time around it was advanced (teenagers) in their own show, and then the beginners (little kids) on their own, and I was with the advanced students so that I'd fit in a little better, even though I was a beginner. This year we're having 3 tuba players because not enough of them are doing a recital to have their own hour, and then the little kids will play right before the advanced students, all in one hour-ish recital. Normally they have more people but since they are having at a different time of year not as many kids want to take part, or are just burned out after competition season. So it'll be a little less stressful getting to play in the same hour as everyone, and not be the only beginner in the hour, lol.

Does this mean that it's not going to happen?

It's still going to happen, just with less students, around half or less compared to the last recital. Last time there was barely time to allow for you to walk on and off stage, this time she's trying to stretch out the songs, lol.
