So I won`t say it. . . .


Thanks, Peter.. Yes, it's always easier for me to play the melody with the right hand, being right handed, so I cross the paws now & then with the melody and avoid the "brain scramble", as you say. LOL I loved your "Contemplation" video... I'm a semi-retired electric organist and think the variety of sounds/settings is a lot of fun. Great arrangement:)

peterws - Contemplation is really beautiful. You clearly have a lot of talent1 I like the transitions. The mix of instruments and waves is really nice.

Elssa - Your right, they do not make musicals like this anymore. I really liked you styling of this piece, and the crossed hands was an interesting effect.

Ha ha - I`m not quite old enough to remember those old musicals. They never did back flips in those days either, and the clothes stayed on! HOW times have changed!!

Elssa~ Such a sweet song. Beautifully done, indeed.

Peterws - I very much enjoyed the full version of your e-cital piece. Nice multi-media production. Great work on dubbing over the tracks!

ladypayne~ Your playing has gotten so much more solid. That was a wonderful rendition.

I have to play this piece for my final exam in May. I can only play the first two pages so far. There are plenty of mistakes, and rhythm issues. But here is what I have so far;)

Beautiful, Augustina! I look forward to hearing the finished product as you make your way through to the next pages of the piece. It's very nice.

Ladypayne - Your best piece to date I think
Elssa - I watch old movies all the time - including old musicals. Keep it up.
Augustina - Sounds very tricky to play. Well done

That is coming along very nicely, Augustina. I could do with a music teacher myself. But would I do what I was told? ha ha

Before the February piano bar spins to a close and makes way for the March bar, let me tell you I got to listen to a few contributions, unfortunately not all, of which I'm sure all are of fine quality.

BillM and Peterws, great jobs on that Simon & Garfunkel classic. Especially Peterws rendition, with no shadow cast on BillM's performance, the former was just so outstandingly good. Fine performance on the beautiful hymn Just As I Am, by ladypayne. Wasn't that hymn always performed at Billy Graham's crusades?
