I’m working through Kummer #65 now.  It’s basically a bunch of triples with crescendos.   I worked Emily’s method of playing the end first, and that does make it easier for me to play with feeling.   I decided to step back and note the half and whole steps so I can get a feel for what is going on, then I’m jumping back in.  I spent about 45 minutes with this – just the last two measures.  First, getting a rhythm feeling, then doing the penultimate measures.

I’m going to do a little on the Cinquantaine now.

One aspect of progress that I use is how much I measure myself by is how much music I can take on in a space between lessons.  I’d really like to have the whole piece of Kummer 65 worked through by my next lesson.
