Dan J. - Phase 1 - Kathleen Gillies

Overall Rhythm Comments from Grader:
Hi Daniel. Good job here! Your rhythms were correct throughout this performance, You got slightly ahead of the click in the 6th and 7th bar of the 3rd part however it was very minor. You corrected it very quickly. Nothing major here at all. Congratulations and welcome to Phase 2. Good Luck. Just FYI, the submissions are due by noon est. I just happened to find this one and graded it for you, but I could have easily missed it. But no worries. Cheers, Ed
