Goals:
Write and send 2 wedding summary/contract
Reply to recording email
Put clips online
Conditioning Exercises
Goldfish - played at 50 need to listen to recording. It's not bad!
30DtD LGR - Did 2nd to last day. I still seriously mess this up.
Listen to LGR recording - didn't concentrate on whether there were consistent errors.
30Dtd LGR - last day. It is just a mess. Summary of 30DtD process: It's really hard to know that after all the work I put in it still sounds like crap. Working on the dynamic details was helpful - it helped get me over that hump in my normal learning process. This might have worked better doing one piece at a time.
Automne - finished a section and got the 1st large section to the point where I can keep playing if I mess up.
Pick days for practice perf
Read through/research Prog book

Over the past few days:
Did Conditioning Exercises
30 DtD LGR - figured out I'm still too thumk-y in the first part. played around with making that go away. Need to record and mark spots again.
Automne - got more sections done. Almost done with it!
Booked a wedding

Yesterday was a long day and I skipped any practicing.

Still having weird memory problems today. We'll see how this goes.
Goals:
Scales are done!!!
Finger mechanics - break out Conditioning Exercises?
Work on memorizing Goldfish? Need to set up a practice chart like 30DtD
30DtD LGR (final week!) - record, listen and mark. That was a lot of work. First take was awful. In general the 1st section needs to be smoother like the 3rd section. It sounds thumpy. The waveforms are also smoother in the 3rd section than the 1st. In the middle, the right hand needs to be brought out more. Also, really emphasis dynamics. There are a lot of gasps that need to be smoothed out by more confidence.
30DtD Danza? Not sure I want to continue with this.
Automne - got a few more sections sort of memorized
Look through wedding music
Set up another practice performance
1. Set list
2. Practice set list - memorized

Rest day! Sort of!
Wort music. Or sort it. Yeah. Made lists. Need to enter them into spreadsheets. Made mini set lists. Played a couple and it was about an hour. And my playing was complete crap. Very very off day.
Do I want to do anything else? Not really.

Goals:
Listen to Marcel Tabuteau's Lessons. Listened partway through 3B. I'm having a hard time hearing the differences. I also think voice lessons may help my playing.
Sort music.
Read Sound in Motion
Scales
Finger mechanics
30DtD LGR. I made notes in my head and now have forgotten them.
30DtD Danza
Another section of Automne

Monday, June 20, 2016

Goals:
Scales. Yep.
Finger mechanics. Yep.
30DtD Danza. Worked on small sections. Section that still needs work: the 4-bar 8th notes. There are some jumps that will take some more work. Also, it's hard not to play this loud.
30DtD LGR. Holy crap my fingers still hurt. I better be building excellent calluses.
