Just a quick entry.

Practice went well today, as did my lesson. I've got to work on my scales a bit more, and solidify them for my exam in 6 weeks. I also got my brahms sonata to look at and start learning, and did some work on my Bach, which is starting to get to a stage where I know all the notes and can start cleaning it up.

I'm involved with a performance of some new music to celebrate the anniversary of the college i'm at. It's been composed by a Masters student who's done some interesting stuff around perth, but looking at my part, I'm not sure if I'll be able to play it within a couple of weeks when the performance is. It's very... interesting. I'll just say that It's not my taste.

I best be off. I've got a listening test for history on Thursday and I haven't listened to half the pieces. Ciao
