Working line by line on Fuga now. Re-vamped the typical practice plan to see if measure/line/page progression goes better.

Not sure what to do about Tambourin.

I realized today that after Fuga, I just have one more piece to learn! Everything else is just polishing. Whoa. ! So I sort of am on schedule, as far as my original goal wanting to get everything done and an album released by September. Everything is almost done.

And I also realized Fuga is simply a round. The right hand leads.

Learned more of Flagello Sonata parts I and II.

Recorded Tambourin to see where I'm at, and my mind went blank as soon as the recorder went on. Is it getting worse?  I couldn't even get through the first line and I have this memorized!

From what I could hear, the trill are sounding better than last checkpoint. It doesn't have that carefree dance-y quality though. Yet. Yet? Possibly because my mind went blank and it lost continuity.

Finished note learning on Fuga.  Took me 1.5 months.  And I took a bit of a break from it because I actually forgot about it.

Worked out the embellishments I want in Giga. Now to learn them.

Worked on Fuga. A few more measures learned.

Helped a fellow harpist get her music up on bandcamp. Check it out. She has a lovely voice.
