New year's resolutions

January 1, 2008 at 2:32 AM

Let's see how many of these I keep:

1. Learn vibrato on the C string; & with my 1st finger on the G & D strings
2. Practice my technical studies at least 2 times per week.
3. Have dinner BEFORE rehearsals & lessons.
4. Learn 6 more movements from the Suites.
5. Eat all the vegetables that I grow in the garden.
6. Exercise more than my right arm and left fingers.
7. Do something on my vacation days other than practice.
8. Learn Hummel's Fantasy for Viola & Orchestra
9. Figure out what shouldrest/chinrest combo to use once and for all.
10. And finally..... Spend more time in the great outdoors in the summer rather than the practice room.

That's a great list.

Funny! #6 and #10 ended up on my resolutions list as well. #7 would be as well, but I like practicing, and isn't that what vacation days are for--to do something we like? ;-)

Good luck.
