Here is some not so great audio and video. I am in the back by the flower...barely visible....   It is a huge leap of faith that I even post this....but here goes nothing.

Here is the warm up of Twinkle Twinkle.   I accidentally deleted the one with the whole group.  It really sounded lovely.  (Supposedly there will be  a video will be out soon, better quality)...

Well done, CPO. hats_offIt takes courage to let yourself be vulnerable.

Next time, get your cameraman a better seat, though...blink

May I say Toni, your forehead was lovely. Your bow seemed to be moving in time with everyone else, and I didn't hear and twangs or curses from your corner.

thumbs-up

Good Job!

Thanks for posting this, Toni! You did a great job and everyone sounded good together.

I agree, next time your camera man/woman needs a better seat so we can see you!

Thanks Osama, Kinda, Dio, and Sara... 🙂  It really sounded prettier in a big room.  I went to the back on purpose much to the dismay of my three guests...but I was shaking and very insecure.....would not have been so  bad but I knew there would be candid shots of me.

 

Thanks again...

Good playing coolpinkone!  Your nerves didn't affect your playing enough that it was noticeable.  You did the gig and you played good.  That is definitely enough to be proud of.

I'm not real fond of being in front of cameras or video machines myself.  Heck, even turning on an audio recorder seems to make enough stuff mess up, who needs video to make it even worse?  LOL

But seriously, you did a good job and you were brave!  Well done!

Thank  you Daniel and Mike.

Today I was able to just relax and really play that song nicely.  I will keep up practicing on it and keep it in my repertoire of songs.

 

Thanks again.

Like it Toni,
Such a shame about the camera angle, but if it helped to make your first performance less stressful, why not.
Just goes to show though, anyone on this site can be on the front row and not be embarrassed about it.
After all, in a way, we all perform in public when we put a video on here for scrutiny. I'm sure there are a lot of students out there who go in front without the benefit of FM's worldwide audience beforehand.

Once again, congrats Toni, we're proud if you gold_star

Let's give credit where credit belongs. To CoolPinkOne = TONI thumbs-up

She wanted the Pole Dancing Bunny. I just cropped it and made it 20% smaller.

This gif has 197 images in it. I would have done it if it had less than 10.
Can you imagine the time it took someone to do that. They had to draw the bunny in 197 different ways. If someone wants to change it, just open the gif in photoshop, mark each bunny with the magic wand and Fill (under edit) with "color". I find that 50% gives a better effect than all.bunny_pole_dancer

How great was that? clap Putting yourself 'out there' is nervewracking, but you did it! 

I recently put a video of myself playing a piano piece on Facebook and it was *so* scary, but the love I got back from friends and family was worth it. 

YAY you! Now the next video we want to *see* you. 😉
