I’m back on Kummer #35. My focus was on hitting that high A, then coming back and properly setting up the (IV)F to get a good tone. Both have to be done right to get the desired effect on this exercise. I also think I’m missing some Bb and doing B instead.

Practicing has been going better. Guilt over playing the cello has subsided. I have enough time to practice; I just have to put aside other things.
