I have practiced this piece totally on my own, only help I have had was youtube-videos. 🎬

Since the beginning I started to practice this I had a strong feeling that this song should be played outdoors. I don’t know why, but this really sounds much better on this way!

This is such a long and so complicated song that towards the end my hand starts to get tired, which is a bit visible (and can be heard) in the video as well. I know I will need more technique practice to get over that, but I need help from my teacher.

I'm quite satisfied with this anyway. 200 days ago I couldn't even imagine I can play songs like this! 😳 Would be fun to do a timelapse video for 1 year anniversary.

Ilona,

That was wonderful!  I definitely understand what you’ve said about playing it outdoors—seems like the perfect setting.

Characterize people by their actions and you will never be fooled by their words.
