It’s been a while!
So after more than six months away, I’m back and it’s back to some exercises and Hanon (at reduced tempi for most though).

I thought I’d rest my weak left hand (Ulna nerve issues). So I have spent lots of time in the gym, lost 20lbs and feeling lots better for it. The hand feels better than I can remember it being back in January/February time. I played the Hanon at the same tempo as six months ago, I needed to play them at half-speed first, but then most were OK at full tempo, a couple were “failed” and will need reviewing tomorrow.

A busy couple of days over the weekend, so couldn’t get any practicing done. But it went well today (took a few hours off work!).

There seemed to be a breakthrough in a couple of the tricky right-hand phrases (micro-studies) from Chopin’s Op10 no4. So the status of this piece is that there is just one right hand micro-study remaining and then it’s on to hands together stuff!
