Dress rehearsal - it's helpful to play in a different space. Different lighting, difference acoustics. I hear different notes than I ordinarily do and I think getting used to that is useful.

So tired. Managed 15 min of endurance and change schedule to overview instead of large sections. Need to contact about next recording session.

Prelude 4 - I can play sections separately, but things go haywire when I hook them together. The mistakes compound the further I go.

Tambourin - ok

Dress rehearsal - I did NOT focus on tone and dynamics, just like in the studio. I may need to add more of these into my practice schedule.

Tambourin - Memorized small sections  with dynamics. It did not go well. Recording from yesterday was pretty good - only 3 flags.

Prelude 4 -  Memorized small sections  with dynamics. It did not go well. Recording from yesterday had  too many flags to count.


Went through repertoire for endurance.

Still working on the practice schedule. It is grueling. The "trying to come up with appropriate tasks" vs. what I'm actually scheduling myself to do.

★ Tambourin - detail work. Played through and recorded.

★Prelude 4 - worked on opening dynamics. Recorded.

Filled out survey.

Constructing a practice outline. It is difficult. I got day 1 done and had to stop there so I could actually use the day 1 activities.
Working on endurance, as that was a problem during recording. And working on dynamics. Not enough time today. Added that question to survey.

My hands still hurt! It's only the surface of my fingertips. Didn't really practice. Couldn't focus.

Working on practice chart similar to 30 Days to Done, but including more polishing work, as I need more of that.

Also started a survey to see how my practicing affects the quality of my playing.
