Beethoven, the ‘Ukulele and Gratitude

Another “milestone” reached this week: The first seven pages of “Scene by the Brook”, the second movement of Beethoven’s Pastorale Symphony, arranged for solo ‘Ukulele!

Like the first movement, the second movement of Beethoven’s Sixth is in sonata form. Sonata form has three main sections: the exposition,the development, and the recapitulation. Since page 7 marks the end of the exposition of the second movement, I decided to make a compilation that includes the first seven pages, all edited together:

Here in Denver, it’s a snowy November 26, 2019. I put a little clip of the view of the storm outside my window at the end of the video. It’s Thanksgiving this week. Whether you celebrate Thanksgiving or not, and whether or not you’re reading this in “real time”, I want to express my gratitude for you reading this and joining me on this journey!

Let me know what you would like to see from this project. I love to hear from you, so drop me a line with any questions/suggestions or just to say hi!

And…when you’re ready, you can find out more about lessons with me online via Zoom or Skype (or in person, if you happen to be in Denver!) by visiting my lessons page.

all the best to you!
