Scales: Started working on the next cycle around the circle of fifths, but at a new all time high tempo of 80. At the end of the 30 minute slot my left hand was tiring and a few mistakes started creeping in, not so much wrong notes, but lack of smoothness and not being synced with the right hand properly.

Sight Reading: The two studies went well as did the Level 1 sight reading piece.. a Grade2ish version of ‘Moon River’. The left hand jumped about quite a bit, but this song is a classic melody and lots of fun!

The sight-reading felt much more relaxed and natural today. Recently I’ve been using a metronome and found I could increase the tempo slightly. I also felt as if I was looking ahead better today. So I enjoyed the three tasks, and it felt much less like a chore than it often does….
