it’s already september and we’re nearing 2018! Amazing how time passes by. I wanted to let you know my plans for September, the end of the 3rd quarter of 2017.
However, I first have to make an announcement! We reached over 2000 <—– (!!!!!!!!) views on my guitar progress video! I never expected anything like that (!!!!!!!). I’m so super happy that so many people clicked and viewed the video. What strikes me most, however, are the beautiful comments that you guys left below the video! I read all of them and I tried to answer all of them! Thank you so much for your lovely comments! You are an amazing community! I’ll do all I can do keep up my progress if it really inspires some of you! That’s the least I can do for all the great feedback I received from you guys! Thank you so so much!
As you may have noticed, I wasn’t able to write much the last month. This is due to my stay in England. I am going to spend September in England and improve upon my language skills and do the intercultural project that is compulsory for my study.
However, the family that I will be with throughout September does have some instruments at home, so I am able to practice a bit. Since I won’t be able to take all my studies with me, I am mainly going to use that remaining time in England to write new pieces!
The goal is to capture my impressions in that pieces and at the same time incorporate the techniques that I have know accquired over the last 1,5 years. I’ll make sure to post a video from time to time, showing you my progress! In case I fail to do so, be excited to see some of my new songs!
Beside that I want to reveal to you what I have planned for the remaining 4th quarter of 2017. The main goal on all my instruments is to reach the next level:
Guitar -> Intermediate
Piano -> Intermediate
Violin -> Late-Beginner / Intermediate
Ocarina -> Late-Beginner / Intermediate
Cajón -> Late-Beginner / Intermediate
For that purpose I want to finish the songs that I set myself as a goal for this year. Those songs/pieces are:
- Spanish Romance / Romanza (the reason why I started out on the guitar and particularly classical guitar)
2. Carulli: Waltz in Em
3. Tschaikovsky: Nutcracker Theme
4. Dvorak: New World Theme
5. Haydn: Surprise Theme
6. Strauss: The Blue Danube
7. Silent Night (fingerstyle version by Gareth Evans)
1. La-La-Land “City of Stars” accomp.
2. He’s a Pirate
3. Für Elise
4. Prelude in C (Bach)
1. He’s a Pirate
3. Oh Christmas Tree
4. Mad World
5. La Claire de la Lune
1. Silent Night
2. Ode to Joy
3. He’s a Pirate
As you can see, a lot of those songs are themed for christmas, as it is approaching. Those pieces are mostly “easy” to play and also pieces that I wanted to play for a very long time.
Once I finish them I am going to attempt higher level arrangements and hopefully leave the “beginner level” 🙂 I’m so excited to see if I can achieve this!
Please keep sharing my videos and also keep liking them as it helps a lot to know what videos you guys are interested in! 🙂 Thank you !
