New (old) piece is finished

Long time since my last post. During that time few things happened: I wrote a set of “Pieces for Kids. Level I”, finished one of my older pieces called “A Tune”, which I was composing in 2015, but didn’t finish, went to a lecture of Patrick Zeoli (student of Abel Carlevaro) about the guitar technique.

Composer-Performer. Just did it.

ET Esitlus Tallinna Kitarrifestivali raames on tehtud! Selles ettekandes püüdsin näidata, kui oluline on kompositsiooni õpetamine nii väikestele lastele kui ka täiskasvanutele.

In that presentation I tried […]
