Did someone mention my name?
Sorry, I've been spending my time elsewhere for a bit, and I don't think I'm the only one. This place has been unusually quiet of late.
I'm glad you're here....thank you for listening! Yes, it has been very quiet. It saddens me; I feel like I'm the only one here lately. It's not fair or nice. Maybe I should just go silent for a while too....except I still enjoy playing piano, and practicing/sharing/recording music keeps me motivated to continue learning new music. I guess I could just stick with Youtube and Facebook though... Does anyone have any ideas how we can get people to participate here more?
As far as the Telemann ornaments go, I gather common view favours the idea that baroque ornaments should generally be on the beat, and indeed it seems that that's where you're putting them most of the time. However, I think it's as well to be guided by intuition here, and not be too dogmatic about it.
Yes, I listened back to my recording and I think that most of them are on the beat, but a couple are a little iffy. It helps that my attention has been drawn to this so I can check myself on my re-recording (which will probably be tonight since I'll have the house to myself).
I think what Stu means about the quotes is that he has had to put "Monica wrote:" into the white box of the quoted text, instead of getting it to appear in the shaded strip above it.
Oh, now I see what you mean. Sorry you're having trouble, Stu...
