Spend some time every week practicing your instrument, and record how much time you spent on it. Bonus points for listing pieces practiced, and the ocassional recording.
I've actually practiced a bit here an there - but not as much as I'd like to. Going to try for at least 10 minutes a day for this week. Wish me luck!
Continued strength training, my fingers are pretty weak. Did some scales and some jamming. Will work through some pieces next week
Got back from my cruise, and then was sick for a week. I started retraining my muscles with some basic scales.
Mostly just jamming, although I went through Think of Me one time.
Practiced Game of Thrones and Lilium. After so long I was glad that I mostly remembered and kept to the fingering I had been using for Game of Thrones - though I think I need to change some of it. I also found myself using 4th position fairly naturally a couple times on Lilium which I had never attempted before, so playing with different positions is starting to sink in. Band practice didn't happen this week, which was sad.
More band practice. Some of the songs we used to think worked really well aren't working so well now. Don't know if it's the time away or if we were deaf before when we thought they worked.
1 hr of GETTING THE BAND BACK TOGETHER. Well, just two of us. Cool how much came back after a year of not playing those songs.
Twice through Think of Me and some intensive on the final run section. It's a really fun song to play!
I'm down to one day a week and I'm fine with that for now. My skills probably aren't improving much, but if I miss a one week that becomes 2 and then 3 and then next thing I know I have gone 5 years without playing and lost all of my skills! Let's not let that happen again mkay?
The search for an instructor is currently delayed as stuffs going on lately. Maybe august.
I practiced Lilium. I am at the point where I think I may be ready to find a teacher. Going to start that process this week.
Little pause this week, I only played with my teacher on monday.
We did a few 4th position exercises and he gave me a new lesson to work on, using both the 1st and 4th positions. Looks difficult and fun! :D
Played Game of Thrones and Phantom of the Opera for fun. Worked a bit harder on Think of Me, especially the difficult run and high note at the end of the song. Not up to speed there but getting close.
Camping trip and bad sunburn from said trip made it hard to get something for this lol.
Played one song. Today. Yeah. Busy weekend, and sore arms.
Getting back to it!
I want to begin a new song but i'm not satisfied about my skill on "La danse de l'ours".
Je voudrais commencer une nouvelle chanson, mais je ne suis pas satisfait par mon niveau sur "La danse de l'ours".
I've been sick, so only 2 days of practice. Still keeping it going though!
