Cranking up the pressure!

My second accordion lesson this evening and boy is the pressure being wound up! I got a score of 99% for last weeks pieces which wasn't bad but still 1% away from what I'd really be happy with!

This week I'm expected to contort my fingers into positions they really weren't designed to go in as I practice scales, arpeggios and pieces of music that look like something out of a work from Beethoven, (the next piece in the book after Jingle Bells to be precise!)

Spent around 30 odd minutes this evening when I got home from the lesson practicing to make sure I could remember everything - not sure I improved in any way but at least I might remember what I'm expected to do tomorrow. I need to clarify something with our music specialist at school sometime this week as there was one arpeggio written in my book that I simply can't recall!

Only 2 weeks to go until half term and my trip towards Fradley and possibly Tixell if I get that far. The weather is tantalisingly warm and summery at the moment and it offsets the turning leaves on the trees on the surrounding hills magnificently - I feel sure it was turn wet and cold in time for half term!!

Good G*d!! are you a super star or are you a superstar. Only a week and you are 'doing' Beethoven or is there something you are not telling. Do tell as I need all the help and encouragement that I can get. Thanks for a great blog, a bit different from the usual attempts.

Kind regards

Hi there, I am surprised - perhaps you mistook me for a wailing cat!

I may well try and pop and say 'hi' at some time over the weekend - it would be good to see you both.
