"T. Rex goes for a Stroll" by Christine Donkin

"T. Rex goes for a Stroll" is another fun piece in Christine Donkin's book "Comic & Card Tricks". I really enjoy practicing everything this woman composes!

On this piece I encountered ff (fortissimo) for the first time, and maybe that's why I got a bit carried away... I'm not super happy about this recording, but I get way too nervous when I press the record button. I'm not sure I can do any better -- recorded this piece 4 times and I mess each one up in a different way. On this one, my key attack is too violent in the middle section and I'm not sure I like the rubato at the end. Oh well...

Sheet music for this piece:

Hi, I'm Maira and this is my attempt at old-fashioned personal blogging in the era of social media overload. I'm a day trader, programmer and photographer currently based in Valencia, Spain, and the last thing I want to talk about is work.

My little corner on the internet is all about photography, travels, learning piano, gardening, baking... The kind of personal stuff I'd share with my mom on social media, but without the ads.
