Interesting and emotionally involving style.

I found this curiously interesting and relaxing to listen to.
She takes a minimalist approach in good taste.

She seems a little stiff, but she also seems relaxed at the same time. A paradox.

What you think?

It’s ... well ... not developed?
There are the germs of some ideas laid out with dynamics applied.
I think that’s about it.

This was supposed to be a fully realized solo, if I read this correctly.
I am not doubting her skills ... just her creative depth.

Maybe... she does not even try to conform (or gave up trying). I sense a jazz feel in her growing pains.

An interesting demo, I'd like to hear something with other instruments involved too.

I liked what she was doing. Technically, her right hand seems fluid, but her left was gripping too hard from that I could see. I think if she took about two hours of lessons from the likes of Tommy Igoe or Danny Gottlieb or similar folk her technique would be a LOT letter, and probably so would her creativity.

Yes... if she got the right kind of lessons I believe there is the heart of an artist inside her body...

My drum teacher used to keep (mentally) slapping my knuckles with a ruler like a Nun when he saw me using my arms. He kept driving home how to relax and let my wrists do the action, not my arms.

She needs a few knuckles tapped. I think she would love what she learns.
