Dominic M. - Phase 1 - 2/4 March - Your Choice (4 Parts)

Overall Rhythm Comments from Grader:

Hi Dominic. Your rhythms were both correct and accurate throughout this performance. You do have a tendency to get ever so slightly ahead of the click on any bar with a 4 - 8th notes in a row, but you get right back on. A very minor issue, just keep an eye on it as you move forward. I liked the way you transcribed the tune for me. Nicely done here. Just try to remember to write in the repeat signs at the start of the part also. But, congratulations and welcome to phase 2. Good Luck. Cheers, Ed
