    I came over to thank you for your comment on my "Sparkers in Munich?" blog
    You said "Playing piano is can be quite strenuous and requires a lot of stamina!"
    That's actually the focus of my blog today which started out to be simply the requested links to Jeannie's performances. As I watched her playing, the Spark connection hit me.

    I very happy to see you and Jeannie have a conversation going.

    Thanks for commenting on my blog today! I'm so excited for you to learn the first Arabesque. It is *such* a beautiful piece. You probably don't need any input from me, but if you would like to talk about it at all, please do! Sometimes people wonder how to make the 2 against 3 sound fluid. The trick (I think) is to have the rhythm so ingrained in you that you don't have to think about it. Instead, you can focus on the beautiful melody and the 2 against 3 just happens. Someone asked about it on the PianoWorld "Pianist Corner" forum, so I made a video of a technical exercise my teacher taught her students. If you can master this, the 2 against 3 becomes very natural.

    I hope it wasn't presumptuous to share that. For all I know, you might be the best player of 2 against 3 in the whole world! It's just that I know that's often something people have to work on in that particular piece.
