I want to share this video where I’m playing Dotzauers etude no. 36.

But please read this first!

This piece is actually too hard for me and absolutely no one expects it to be perfect. My teacher gave this to me to practice just because so we could see what I can do, but he doesn’t require me to do it perfectly yet.

However, because for me it’s natural to be a perfectionist, by sharing this I’m practicing to NOT always be perfect. I hate it when I’m not in tune and all those scratches that I can hear, but I KNOW it will be better with time and more practice. 

I will post a new video when it is perfect! 😄

Me and Dotzauer 🙂

Ilona - I think it's a great help to do a "before you get it together" video and an "after you get it together" video!  You can learn so much from it and it should help you to relax (I need to do more myself).  

 

Thank you for sharing that - we ALL don't start out a piece perfect (maybe except for Fiddlerman)!

I can't wait for your next video!

Yes, making videos is actually often very helpful. So it was this time too, because today I beated this song! 😄👍🏻 The difficult points went so much better, my fingers just magically found their places. I don't know what happened!

Maybe I have hope to get that perfect version of this faster than I even think.🤔

Woohoo Jump Emoticons Ilona - Hurray!  I know that feeling! 

Noticing I'm also starting to "get it all together" more easily.  I just learned "George I Taylor" Strathsbey and I was surprised how quickly I picked it up!

These little "breakthroughs" are great motivation for us to continue playing!

I'm also in favor of taking videos at all stages of learning a piece, from the very first reading to the final product, because it's great for reviewing and pinpointing what needs improvement along the way. Thank you for sharing the "before" -- when you're done with this etude it'll show how far you've come.

Indeed, great plan @Ilona - yup - videoing the before and after (and during - it ALWAYS evolves is what I have found - there seems to be increasing levels of individual "perfection" and we always aim at the next one LOL) - get it to your satisfaction "now" ( well sometime soon ) - then with a few more years of playing you return to it - and think - ahhh, I could do better!  That's what drives us all I believe. 

Well done thumbs-up

I seriously recommend not copying my mistakes. D'oh - guntohead.JPG

Please make your own, different mistakes, and help us all learn :-)

Nobody sounds perfect when they are learning a piece. Even the professionals. They practice it day and night until they can play it in their sleep. Unless they are some genius or something.

 

Doing good, keep practicing it...it will come.
