Lesson 2 for playing Evevning Prayer from Hansel and Gretel.

Patrons received exclusive early access to this post.

I've ironed out many kinks for this second tutorial for playing “Evening Prayer” from Hansel and Gretel and it is finally ready for early patron access.  Thank you so much for helping make this possible. I have received good feedback on the first videos in this music series.

Continuing from the first tutorial, we learn here to play measures 15 through 20, and reinforce what we learned before to the end.  In the next video, we will work backwards from there, building confidence as we go.

I'll also have some exciting news coming up shortly after Independence Day, so stay tuned!

Your questions and comments make what I'm doing better, so please add them in the YouTube video comments. As always, be sure to like (hit the thumbs-up icon) the video, subscribe on YouTube, and ring the notification bell.  If you're feeling extra awesome, go ahead and post comments on Patreon, too.

I appreciate your ongoing support. You are making this possible and I'm grateful.

Let's #BuildBetterBrains Together

  • Smash those like buttons on my Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and Flickr posts, and leave a note about what was good.
  • Suggest your genius, wacky, or just plain good ideas about what I can do better.

Finally, please ask your friends and colleagues to join you in your support of this cause with a shout out on Facebook or post on Twitter or even a good old fashioned personal email. Thank you again. Let's make music together. Let's #BuildBetterBrains.

Here we are, at long last!  Our first tutorial for playing “Evening Prayer” from Hansel and Gretel has arrived.  As usual, patrons are getting early access.

If you haven't seen it already, check out my “Evening Prayer” demonstration performance. Then, come back here and learn how to play from beat 4 of measure 20 to the end.  In the next video, we will work backwards from there, building confidence as we go.
