Further work on latest piece in shortish sections with the metronome. Then I ran through the whole piece once and it fell apart in 2 of the 3 sections I’ve been focused on. So lots more slow’n steady practice on these (which have lots of octaves, ninths, sevenths and chords in both hands all sort of wrist and arm stuff)….

Lots of work on the three hardest sections of the new piece. Again, starting at a metronome value in the 40s and increasing up to 120 or so. This does seem to be working, but they are not yet at full tempo and so when I try them in situ it all falls apart. But it’s still fun!

The fifth day working on a new major piece rather than sight-reading related stuff. Lots of very slow practice using a metronome as a brake, lots of fun….
