Hmm.... Today is the tomorrow that I worried about yesterday. So am I floating in space or am I perpetually living in today, tomorrow and yesterday? I guess the answer is yes. Whatever yes is.
Now that I've got that little bit of philosophical thinking out of the way for the day I will move on!
It's been 25 days today that I have practiced vibrato every single day for an average of 20 minutes a day. That's over 8 hours for anyone who cares.
For 24/25 of those days I've done at least 45 minutes of scales, many days more than an hour.
For the past 25 days my scheme of priorities have been practicing, teaching, school. Mainly practicing and teaching. I like practicing (usually) and teaching.
I hope you've all enjoyed this episode of Kelsey's blog and that your brain doesn't hurt too much.
Everyday, at least 5 times slowly. This bit repeats 10 times in the piece, and I played at least twice a day. I practice this at least 5 days in a week. It's been almost 12 months since I started practising.
No. of times I've played this:
(5 times x 5 days x 12 months) + (10 repeats x 2 times a day, x 5 days x 12 months) = 300 times + 1200 times = 1500 times.
Gosh, did I really play that many times? No wonder I am sick of it right after the exam! I dare not count the number of times I've practiced my scales!
