I think the difference is in how me and the professor mark. I would give a 95+ to someone who is a professional performer. I would rarely give out a 90 unless it was almost perfect in every way. 60's to a barely pass, just stumbling through the music. I give 70's to good clean yet not the greatest performances, 80's to great performances with all the right notes and smaller things to improve it. 90's to amazing performances that are practically BLEMISHLESS, like soo amazing your ears are singing.

Smile The big things for me was the sometimes blurry pedal and the lack of Stretto on the last page. I think I would be able to give you a higher mark with better sound recording stuff, cause that might have been a problem. and a real piano would help to. So it might not be your fault XD

Either way, i still consider it a great performance with a few small things to work on. The rubato you used was fairly good too Smile I think you could still play around with it slightly more though. Smile

I hope that helps you understand better? Very Happy 82 would be the lowest I would give it. The thing about Art is you're never finished, it can ALWAYS get better Very Happy SO i didn't want to give you an awesome mark and let you think there's nothing left to work on Smile I could also accept giving you a mark as high as 90 but, I think you could use more of your body when you play, your arms shoulders elbow look a bit ridgid Smile

You're getting SO much better though, don't let my comments make you feel bad, i would NOT be saying this if i didn't think you were up to the challenge, i think you're getting to the late intermediate starting to approach advanced stage. Smile

I understand better now Smile I was just a little paralyzed and confused Smile
Thanks for clearing it up for me Smile Yeah, I agree on that, this is a piece I wont stop playing... hopefully. I said the same about moonlight sonata, but I havnt playd is since my performance Razz

Yup, it would be a lot easyer if you where in the same room, for sure!
About the body-movements - You are right. Its cause of the camera Razz Im not like that when I practice,
I still feel a little lame if I where to move around like when Im practicing Razz hehe - Gotto get some confidence on that! Smile

Yup, Im not feeling bad Smile Just confused, but its clear to me now Wink
Thanks for taking the time!! I am very lucky that people like you spend their time like this! Its Unique Smile
It would be fun to go to Canada and meet you and play for you. Ill save up some money for tickets and a lesson Wink
... someday maybe Smile

haha Very Happy no worries. I didn't want you to think i was displeased. Infact I wouldn't have gone to the trouble of typing all that up if I didn't think it was useful for you.

Smile Yes! It'd be awesome to meet and play together some day! I think that maybe by the time we meet, you'll have learned so much that I won't have anything to teach you! So maybe we'll just meet as friend hahah

I just can't stop wondering: how do you compose a rag? ^^
Hope you can explain that stuf! Wink

Really nice nocturne by the way! Wow!

Hi Smile Well, the short story(basic rules)

In a classical rag there are 4 themes. They should be different but at the same time feel like they are in the same piece.
There usually is a intro aswell.

Pattern: Intro AA BB A CC DD

Each theme should consist of 16 bars, where the 16th bar is slightly different on the repeat to lead into the next theme.
The C-Theme(section) usually goes to the Subdominant key. If its in C then the C-Theme would be in F and the you can either keep the F key in the D as well or go back to the normal key. Its up to you. You can also keep the whole piece in One key Smile

Those are the basics Smile


Thanks Wink

Thanks man!

But I got so more questions ^^

RH:Basically you take a melody and put it ''off-beat'',right?for example(Time signature 2-4 :RH 1/16 1/8 1/8 1/16 1/16 1/16 then LH 1/8 1/8 1/8 1/8?

And LH: What note do you take to make the jump? the one of the key you're playing in opr what?

Im not the best at that, but staying in the key is safe at least, I got some errors on this thing that I think I will correct when I get around to do it. And bout the melody, its important to both have some on the beat, of beat and syncopations(mocing cross the bets) Look at rag to see what they do ect and analyze their patterns! Smile
