very nice, I like your light touch and slight subtle accent on beat one.

There's two things I'd suggest, no pedal when playing E D# E D# over and over, and also less wrist movement, your wrist is tending to bob up and down unnecessarily, it can create problems later on if you keep doing this.

Now on the plus side, you hands look quite relaxed, your tone is fairly good, you are pretty steady, so very good job! ^_^ Not bad at all for just 3 days! Thanks for posting!

wow andrew i'm so impressed by your hearing ability!

firstly,thank you for the advice and i will keep that in my mind! secondly, i think my wrist movement had been a problem for a long time and i'm try to find a way to solve it..do you have any suggestion to lower down my wrist movement? Lastly i will work hard to prefect the whole song =)

thanks

Something that might solve your wrist movment problems is to think of playing the keys starting from your shoulder all the way straight down to your finger tips... "Play from the shoulder to the finger" Is something you should try to keep in your mind. ^_^

Hope that helps!
