Now we wait for the decision Thursday by the end of the day. Thomas practiced and practiced with no day off since the beginning of September at tempo 88 for his audition the past Sunday. With not one day off, he took almost 2 hours aday , each day, in order to show the conductor how bad he wanted the first chair. We got home and I gave him 2 days off to do as he wanted then he wanted to play it at 100, as he has been begging to do since the beginning. THomas hates to be told to play a piece slower than what it is intended, but I did not let him do it any faster than his teacher wanted him to do. He really did nail it but wanted to do his final version the way everyone else plays it. I told him it would not be as good as his audtion because we had not practiced it at this speed, but being a stubborn young man, he would not take no for an answer. So here is the first movement at his request. He is almost done with the second and third movement and will be adding it within the next week. I just cant get over how these youngins can memorize so easily. Like I always say, I honestly forget stuff a day after. Yes, being unfamiliar with anything electronic, I decided to improve the sound by moving way back into another room to record, not thinking I was going to affect the quality of the video. Lesson learned.
