Bolero - Revisited

May 17, 2008 at 4:27 AM

I am having another Bolero moment. My "day" job has us doing a data conversion at night over the weekend. It takes aver 60 hours to run.

So, what do I do as I watch and wait? Scales - all of them. Kreutzer Etudes, and recent pieces that I've memorized.

Once nice thing... the wall behind my computer is mirrored. I can focus on my bowing (with one eye on the computer).

Back to watching, waiting, and practicing.

You're lucky you have a work environment where you can do that. Have fun practicing there.

That "work environment" is my home office. I only played at work once, in the "trailer" put there just for us IT types on a previous project. It was me and one other software engineer doing a very late night. He didn't ask me to stop :)
