Catherine J. - Phase 2 - Kathleen Gillies

Greetings Cathie! I haven't heard one of your submissions in a while and I have to say that you've made some real improvements in the past few weeks/months! fact...

Phase 2 Result: 11/11 Requirements Achieved

Metronome Clearly Audible? Yes
"Best" Tempo Selection? Yes
Rhythm/Note-values understood? Yes
Rhythms accurate to the click of the metronome? Yes

Overall Rhythm Comments from Timothy Gatehouse:
Very good here. Watch that last beat of the line, you tended to get in at the front of the click, which can lead to rushing when it turns into a birl! @Timothy-Gatehouse

Correct Melody Notes? Yes
Hole Coverage Good? Yes
Crossing Noises? No
Correct Gracenotes? Yes
Missed Gracenotes? No
Gracenotes Too Big/Sloppy? No
Gracenotes Out of Sync? No

Overall Basic Melody Comments from Timothy Gatehouse:
This is definitely on the right track. Some slight front of the click starts to gracenotes (after taking breath or at line starts) and just a little big-ish-ness to general gracenote quality, but completely within reason. I think if you work at these little tweaks while you're getting ready for your Phase 3, you should have no trouble at all! So, enjoy that! @Timothy-Gatehouse
