March 5, 2007 at 12:39 PMI started practicing in the morning today instead of the evening. It's kind of nice, I'd like to continue. My vibrato is looser and my mind feels clearer than in the evening. I like watching the early morning sun as I play.
I used to practice right after I got up in high school and then was nicely warmed up for orchestra rehearsal, which was the first class of the day.
Unfortunately Daylight Savings Time is coming up soon and that may screw this up again for a while. I don't think I'm going to be able to drag my sorry butt out of bed to practice in the dark.
Off to practice Lalo...
I suppose if I wake up earlier in the morning and practice before school I would be in a good mood and have more energy... Maybe a late new years resolution?.. better yet.. a chinese New year resolution!
When I practiced in the morning before high school I was up anyway because my parents' TV came on every morning at 6:30 a.m. right on the other side of the thin wall that separated our bedrooms. I couldn't sleep through that, but I could practice through it :)
Nowadays I have been using my practice mute so that the neighbors (and my family) don't complain.
I really like the feeling when it's only 7 a.m. and I've already accomplished something!
Maybe someday I will get up that early to practice. Maybe... but even if I did get up that early I am curious if I would have enough energy to practice. I am not a morning person lol.
