"I can in fact read standard notation, though I'm not sure everyone on Tradconnect can. Furthermore, I have had some formal theory training, though none of it seemed to make sense once I applied it . . . not having proficiency on an instrument…"

"I presumed an innate ability to identify the tonal center, but perhaps that was a bit too much. Allow me to suggest this for those who are not comfortable with that skill. Select a piece for which you do know the key. For instance, Mason’s…"

"Cool, this is definitely a useful place to start for those of us looking to help our accompanists out. Down the road, we can hone our knowledge and offer a more accurate assessment, but it is probably more useful than, "I don't know.""

Hi Justin!!!

Nice to see my future fiddle teacher here!  Hey, there are groups here for The Riley School and Ohio TradConnect members as well - I hope you will consider joining both of them.  I have been trying to keep the Ohio group page updated with information of local interest, but I should sure could use some help - if you join, I think it is set so that all members are free to edit the page.

Also, thanks very much for the help on my "overcoming stage fright discussion"!  I'm sure you will be helping me along in the future :)!

See you very soon~

Hi Justin. Your site looks great and its good to have some teachers on. Would be great if you loaded a few videos of your best loved tunes. Also if you could make your many students aware of the TradConnect it would be a great boost, and you never know they may meet up with some other musicians here. Enjoy
