    This was wonderful. Angelica is amazing! She used the term “sparkle and shine” and that describes her. I do this challenge with my morning coffee and she’s a great way to wake up. Her instruction is terrific, I always get a few new ways to look at practice. Her students are fabulous. Loved the idea of doing the arpeggios with just 2 fingers. That was new to me. Thanks. I look forward to this every morning and do go back to watch them over and over. A big thank you to Angelica and her students.

    Hi Faye!
    Thank you for your kind message! I LOVE teaching and I always want my students to have just as much fun as I’m having. It’s encouraging to hear that you’re learning new ways to look at this cadenza. Keep me updated on your progress this week!

    I’m so glad you’re enjoying camp!
