Bret Paddock completed his Piano Guild High School Diploma

Bret Paddock performed two programs this afternoon, which he passed with flying colors. Bret completed the 90 minutes Piano Guild High School Diploma program and a second program performing a total of 25 pieces. His program included the prelude and fugue in D min WTC1 by Bach the complete Beethoven Sonata Op 31 no 2, the complete Gershwin Rhapsody in Blue concerto, and selections by Brubeck, Liszt, Debussy, Piazzola and Mozart. His program also included his own improvisation and scales, chords, cadences and modulation and arpeggios. The judge's comments were: "you can chose any path in piano- your talent is special indeed. An INCREDIBLE audition- the best  I have ever heard. Good luck at UCLA! "
