    Great that an 11-year old can play this. Whether she is a real Wunderkind I am not sure, but talent she clearly has. I did not know this Gavotte but it sounds ok to me. Mia should have stayed clear of the Partitas fttb though. These minuets are peppered with read errors, hesitations, and rhythmic anomalies. This choice may have been a bit too ambitious - even the apparently simple items of the partitas are treacherous. Bit given a couple of years I am sure she'll be fully up to the task.

    That's hard to believe that an 11 year old could play something so complete like this. Are you sure that it is truly her? Let's not get into another Setrak-plague :wink:

    Congratulations! There aren't many eleven-year-olds who can do so well. You are doing an excellent job. In my opinion, it's good for you to practice works that may be a little beyond your present grasp. That's the way you improve. The Gavotte was well done. The Partita had a couple of rhythmic problems which can be remedied. Try practicing section by section very slowly with a metronome. I'm sure your teacher has told you that. It will help solve problems of unevenness and tempo.
