I've posted before, and I'll do it again!! wink

Amus piano exam, which is about...a pretty high grade for ABRSM.

Anyway, wish me luck! I've got my Brahms Intermezzo stuff-up phrases fixed up now!! (thanks to my little sister's piano teacher's advice). My General knowledge is getting stronger by the minute due to some not-so- thorough quizing by my little sister. For the Bach Sinfonia, I have fixed up touching and messiness, and it's becoming a nice-ish performance (in my opinion, just trying to boost my confidence). The Beethoven sonata op2 no1 is iffy, pretty averge in my opinion but it should be alright. The Debussy...is good as always XD And the Ravel sonatine 3 is my worst one right now, due to the intense technical things needed (heh, even Ravel only performed the first 2 sonatines, he said that the 3rd was too technical aka hard for him. :S).

I'll just say this, I'm trying to get my nerves destroyed and replace them with arrogance so I can confindently answer the examiners BTW they're both girls...i think, unless a guy has a name of Lyn or Jeanell.

(There doesn't seem to be much traffic on this board for some reason - many more people read the pianists' corner, adult beginners and teachers' forums. Just in case you're wondering why you might not get many replies.)

But, it sounds like you think you're playing the third of Ravel's 3 sonatinas. He only wrote one, and my guess is that you're playing the 3rd movement of it, yes? It would be good to be clear about that for the general knowledge section of the exam. smile Good luck!

Well, it was just playing my 5 pieces and then Q & A ing on general knowledge. However, I didn't pass, due to 'technical insecurities'. frown
