Upon reviewing the video of me, I mostly look very surprised to see music in front of me.  I need to relax my jaw and lips - maybe wear lipstick a few times as a reminder. I also need to pay more attention to the harp and the notes I'm playing - lean into them. I don't know how else to describe it. Ugh, no fake smiling, either.

Next time aim camera to get hands and move light more toward front.

Came up with a set list, finally, but I need to add about 10 minutes.

Also, video recorded myself. It is sobering.

Spent many hours today and yesterday timing pieces, and I still have not come up with a set list. I'm so done with counting measures and calculating beats and times.

Figured out I can use my recorder as a microphone (duh!) and get immediate feedback.

Went through all the music that I own today - not playing everything - to see what I might or might not want to perform.  It's quite the spectrum. So instead of making a setlist today, I've just sifted through everything.  I'll do some mulling next Friday?

Worked trouble spots in Fuga to bottom of 2nd page.

Gave myself blisters trying to get one measure of Arabesque 2.

Ran through exercises looking for repertoire - some Boscha might be good? Or Pozzoli?
