Jason C. - Phase 2 - Flora Cameron

Greetings Jason!
Nice stuff here sir! A few notes below, but for now I'll let the numbers speak for themselves...

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:
There were a few moments where you weren't lining up to the click quite so perfectly, but got right back on by the next click. That means you're tracking well and building a solid skill. I think your tempo choice was great, by the way. Time and reps with plenty of tunes played at this level will make it part of your DNA 😉 @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:
I hear a lot of great navigation and control going on here. While your gracenotes are still a hair large, they are developing very well due to your adherence to the click. Only one or two inconsistent (non-repeating) rolling crossing noises. Let's listen back for those and try to look at your finger posture for those note changes. Were you gripping the chanter a bit more, or were you nervous about a particular spot in the tune? Nothing to spill the applecart though, just a little opportunity for analysis. Ultimately, this is solid playing and exhibits all of the skills needed for Phase 2. Huzzah! Enjoy Phase 3! @Timothy-Gatehouse
