Re: Listening to Professional recordings of music selections
It's always wise to do research and hear good recordings of contest pieces etc. But I have a funny story about this when I first started teaching almost 50 years ago. I was doing " Old Comrades" and I wanted an authentic recording of it. So I found a record ( yes, we did not have anything else available then) of a German band, from Germany, performing it. I did it exactly like they did. We did well at UIL but the critique from 2 of the three judges ( well respected judges) was my style of the piece was not the " German" style. LOL!!!
