Voice warm-up.

(Mirage) scrunching rt fingers. Good bicep workout.

(Flight) will need to drill in sets of 16th notes.

Clementi need to identify problem spots in third movement and work on those, waste of time to work on whole thing.

make performance list vs. recording list

Tried to play, serious concentration problems. Looked at arpeggio etude, not enough room in higher register for my hand, have to bend fingers at first knuckle instead of second. Wrote 1st inversion harmony to melody. Finished more chord identifications.

Feeling like crap, and behind on homework, so no practicing. But did get fun new music today. Sleepy Time by J.E. Ivey, which is a lovely piece, however a little short. I'd like to arrange it, or add to it, so it's a more robust piece.

Finished 1st mouvement, started on 3rd. Working on music homework which involves identifying major, minor, augmented, and diminished chords.

Taking a break, though, and listening to a wonderful podcast from NPR. And unintentionally turning my printer on with my knitting needles.
