Three-Hour Challenge (continued)

February 7, 2019, 10:35 PM · This continues a previous thread that's aged out into the archive: LINK

The goal of the Three-Hour Challenge is to tackle a work that's too hard to be properly learned in three hours, and to work it up to the best of your ability within the time constraint. It's an exercise in practice prioritization.

Here's the challenge rules:

  1. Learn a piece to the best of your ability with no more than three hours of practice time.
  2. Only actual practice time counts towards the three-hour time limit. Listening and the like does not count.
  3. Take audio/video using consumer equipment (a smartphone, Zoom/GoPro/etc.)
  4. Post to YouTube (private link if desired).

Paganini Caprice #16 is the baseline, but you can pick what you want.
