Good session of practice this afternoon. Worked hard on the Chopin Etude micro-studies (I’d skipped several days on this one). I also added another Anki study deck for Hanon 1-20 in sixteenths at mm=76 over 2 octaves. I started off with three today, but have limited it to just one new task a day. The aim is on purpose to challenge my current playing of these by increasing the HT tempo and mover to 2-octave range (was 1), then stress things further by increasing the intervals between study of each exercise. Ultimately this will reduce the daily time on Hanon (currently 10 minutes for exercises 1-20 but only over 1 octave)… If at equilibrium the target is to do just one or two a day (on the days that there are reviews), then it’s best to add "new" exervises at a similar rate.

Another scale went to "mature" in Anki tonight, so currently at 3-octaves and mm=72, 34 of 36 scales now have review intervals >=21 days.

There were three scales to review today, (f minor melodic, b minor harmonic and e minor melodic). They all went very well. I had fun at mm=72 playing 5 notes rather than 4 per click. They felt very fluid and fluent. 😉
