I have been wanting to know what a sonata is for a year.

Good review, Robert. I was just thinking about sonatas and was about to look for information about their structure. Haven't had information about them since I was a kid!
Thank you.

Hi Bob. What do you mean with "double videos"? I will be glad to help!
Bob Price * VSM MEMBER * on August 7, 2013 @11:14 am PST
I get most, if not all, of your offerings in duplicate. Since I'm only paying for one subscription, you might want to check.

Thank you Bob for your reply.

So, do you mean you are getting twice the same Newsletter via email? That may mean that we have two different emails in your name in our database. Please contact me by sending a message about this issue from the page below:

http://www.virtualsheetmusic.com/EMail.html

Please, be sure to mark the message to my attention ("To the att. of Fabrizio Ferrari"), so I'll get your message directly and I'll have the chance to solve this problem for you personally. I don't want to share your personal information on this public webpage, so assistance via email is actually needed for this issue. Thank you!

It's just that you're sending all communications to me twice -- two emails every time there's an announcement. Love the service, though!

Bob.

I understand... that's most probably due to the fact we have two different email addresses in our database that send you the same Newsletter twice to you. Could you please contact me here below:

http://www.virtualsheetmusic.com/EMail.html

by sending all the email addresses you owned in the past few years? That will help to figure and fix this.

Glad to know you like the service, thank you!

Probably bobp0303@hotmail.com, possibly @yahoo.com

Gmail.com is the only one that's current.

Bob.

Thank you Bob, but the only one we could find from the username 'bobp0303' is the one on gmail:

bobp0303 @ gmail.com

Did you own an email with a different username? Thanks.
Bob Price * VSM MEMBER * on August 7, 2013 @12:40 pm PST
This IS the message, thank you. All my various aliases point back to the same address - 311 West Seneca Street
Fabrizio Ferrari - moderator, on August 8, 2013 @10:01 am PST
I am sorry Bob, but I don't understand why you are writing about your physical address... isn't this a problem related to your email address? I am afraid to have not understood your reported issue.

Mr. Estrin does an excellent job explaining what a Sonata is and does it with my favorite Mozart piano piece. This is a complicated subject and he does it very well. His knowledge and enthusiasm catches on fire with me. Great job.

Dear Robert,

Your videos are GREAT! I get them through Virtual Music website. I really appreciated your discussion on playing Baroque music and the difference between the harpsichord and piano. I am a brass player myself, with only the rudimentary training in piano as the basis of my musical training. I refer a lot of friends to your webpage for specific piano playing information and demonstrations that are beyond my ability to express.

Hi... I could not watch it on my I pad maybe because I do not have a flash player.

Hi and thank you for your comment. You should be actually able to watch this video on your iPad, it is a YouTube video and they are compatible on iPads too (I have just checked on my iPad and it works fine). What model and iOS version do you own?
