What lovely playing well done.
I played it to my daughter who is totally in love with her piano and she looked worried that you were playing grade 1 one as she thought the choices looked hard.
But the played them so nicely pat on the back.

Thanks :)
yes it is scary at first like i thought about the grade 2 pieces then grade 3!
Just keep at it and it gets more acomplishable :)
I have my 3rd grading in March and have learned 5 pieces, Not sure which ones ot play yet but i like top cat study in F & Minuet in G.
I have a vid of my Top n Study but was playting from memory so wasnt using teh exact dynamics and using the pedal.
