Practice Log for 28/11/2012 at 20:18:46

Posted in Captain's Log by elwynrees on November 28, 2012

Took another half-day’s annual leave today, had a few things to check up on (make sure son has dragged his arse out of bed and gone to college!!!). That done, had a great afternoon’s practice.

Lately I seem to be finding it easier to focus and concentrate during practice. I don’t know what’s happened, perhaps it’s the mix or technique? I’ve added a couple of "micro-studies" from Chopins’ Etude 10/4. I haven’t a cat in hell’s chance of playing this piece, but it’s a study and is fun! Checkout Paul Barton’s You Tube channel tutorial on this etude for a copy of the micro studies. I’d be practicing now, but folks here want the TV ;-( (unfortunately the piano is in the lounge/family room). Still, tomorrow awaits….
