She is doing well with this.  :)  I would say, there is too short a clip on the last notes of the repeated phrases.  They are marked with a sort of accent/staccato, but they are supposed to be 8th notes and they seem like 16ths to me. 

She brings out the melodies nicely.  I would suggest playing the repeated chords more softly/expressively in the middle section, and much more dynamic changes throughout.  There is so much repetition in this piece, to make it truly expressive and not "Oh, here we go again", dynamics are all-important.

Good work!

Very nice playing. That is a piece Rachel actually CAN master and play really well! There is of course, allways more work to do. But I think we can say this recording is excellent, especially for a 10 years old.
