Some people may find my video on tuning pure 19ths interesting. All this talk of adding a half beat here and stretching more than usual there, leaves my engineering mind and teacher mind all a-flurry. The pure 19th, in my mind, allows for a precise a

I think there's a big disconnect that's present, but seemingly unrecognised. Education for what I suspect is the countries being considered in this thread, is mandatory from and to a certain age for children. That can either be within school, or hom

Listened to the radio performance - very nicely done. Started the video, but the sound quality was such that I couldn't really hear the "chirp" very well, so I bailed on that. The "chirp" was particularly great - I never can get

Nice setlist Joe. Have played many of these songs over the years at wedding receptions... I would have a few more uptempo tunes in there, just to mix things up a bit, especially if it's a very noisy room. Good luck. Usually people don't pay much,
