Hello, I have my senior recital today, and I'm supposed to play the Mozart sonata in F major. I haven't looked at the piece yet, but I'm not so worried because Mozart doesn't sound so difficult. Anyone have some quick memorization tips that I could use to memorize quickly and efficiently?

Teach the music to some flatworms. Then grind up the flatworms in a blender and drink it. You will pick up the piece from the flatworm juice.

Yes, at all costs avoid a wardrobe malfunction.

The recital was great! Don't know why he was worried about the Mozart when he had the Liszt Tarantella and Scriabin 5 on the program!

Good to hear. Didn't he have to play a recital jury? We always do at my school.
