One hundred statements for my 100th post! 🙂

Music Music Music

29 01 2009

Well let’s see, isn’t that how I start most of my blog posts. Let’s start with what I’m working on. My piano teacher is giving me a couple week break, thankfully.

Classical Pieces:

Moonlight Sonata, all movements

Mozart, Turkish March (Still trying to finish that)

 

Hymns:

At the Cross, arranged in the key of C# minor

 

Scales: All the scales listed are for the Natural and Harmonic

F# Minor 

C# Minor

G# Minor/Ab Minor

B Minor

Bb Minor/A# Minor

Eb Minor
WOW! Busy!

 

I recieved the primamusic.com order. Perfect! I guess my piano teacher will have to approve. We have no choice now since I can’t return it without it costing to much. It looks ok but slightly different the version my piano teacher has and even the one I had.

 

The cd came today as well! Beautiful. Julia Fischer interpreted Bach’s concertos really really well. I have just started listening to it not to far into it but I love it.

I hope that you all enjoy reading my blog and that you would keep reading. Please post comments and let me know how I’m doing.





Need Sheet Music? I Know of a Website!

24 01 2009

My piano teacher told me of a website.

http://www.primamusic.com

The sales are great! If you become a member, which is free to become,  you automatically get a 10% discount! WOW! If you buy $300 worth of stuff, which is a lot but if it’s the only place you buy music and you’re serious about music it’s not bad, the discount increases; up to 25%. Now I haven’t spent lots of time on the site but right now it seem reasonable. I just bought Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata. All three movements for only $7.15, of course I wanted to pay extra for faster shipping and there’s a handling fee on anything less than $20 but other than that it was worth it. (Hopefully it’s the right one, I couldn’t see it so I’m not positive but I’m pretty sure it’s the right one.) It’s even Kalmus method. I’m not sure what the normal cost is but it’s a good method. My piano teacher was telling me that it’s one used to teach in colleges and stuff like that. A good reliable one, I guess. Hopefully you can go there and get a good experience. I’ll be blogging about it when I get the music.





LUCKY!

21 01 2009

I did it! I finally won! On the site violinist.com, whenever the Laurie Niles interviews a violinist, she always gets some cds to give away. I have tried about 10 previous times(two cds) to win but I finally won one! A Julia Fischer cd, the cd is of Bach’s Concertos. I’m so excited to get this. I can’t wait until it comes in the mail. I know it’s coming from California, I just don’t know when she’ll be sending it out. YAY! I’m so excited. I’ll tell you all how the cd turns out. 😀





Wondering

20 01 2009

With a new president being sworn in I have a thought. Why do people bash the president. Although Bush didn’t do everything perfect, and obviously no one is perfect. I commend him for the way he reacted in many of the situations. I just think that in that situation I would have absolutely no clue what I would do, except for maybe have a nervous break down. What are your thoughts? I have no shared my brief thoughts. 🙂





New Hairstyle!

19 01 2009

Well it’s finally happened. I finally got a new hairstyle. I don’t know if you can call it style. But it definitely is different. Here’s before and after pictures.
Piano Duet
This is my old hairstyle. I found out that I was quite attached to it.

New hairstyle. Quite different. I’m amazed how attached I was to my hair.

The change is really for when I go to college. Because it’s a Christian college, and it’s quite conservative; hair length matters. I have found out that hair can’t be more than an inch on top. Although I did find out that there are ways around it, I would feel bad doing that. The hair on the sides can’t touch the ears or the collar. That’s the biggest thing. Well now you all know.





American Idol Season 8

13 01 2009

Season 8 started off with a bang. I loved it. The very last audition was a blind guy. I hope he makes it far…he was really interesting. I can’t wait. Hopefully this season will be good. Although I must admit that the show is starting to get a little dramatic this season is starting out pretty good. I didn’t like some of the people that they put through maybe they’ll grow on me. Last season I sat there and said: “I don’t like David Archuleta. He can sing but I just don’t like him.” By the end of the season I loved his voice and thought I wish I had that voice. I’m so jealous.
I know that I can’t sing. That’s ok. I can play piano. I’m satisfied.
