My son, who just turned 7 and is in 1st grade, had a studio recital yesterday. I wanted to share it with the community for comments and feedback.
He had some rough spots during the performance, but overall, I think he did well. The Shostakovich "Dance" is quite difficult technically, especially at his age. Oddly, the rough spots he had were in the areas that he was most consistent during practice and rehearsal-funny how that happens on stage:)
And although he uncharacteristically got caught up on the middle section of "Little Story" by Maykapar, I thought his phrasing and musicality was quite beautiful. Looking forward to your opinions.

I'm looking forward to your feedback:) My son won't see the feedback directly, so you'll be commenting to Daddy.http://gallery.me.com/philiphotchkiss#100007
