Often when dealing with huge changes in my life, playing the cello and then finding the time to blog about it seems a bit tough, but I am still at it. I need to get off the puritannical point of view that playing is a frivolous waste of time when things get busy, and remind myself instead that the tougher things get the more I need it.
Now, on to practice. The emphasis this week has been on playing closer to the bridge in the first Dotzauer study, and being a bit more aware of being in balance with my left hand so that I can free up my mind to have better bowing. We’ll see tomorrow; we’ll likely start some new pieces. I do need to alert my teacher to the possibility that I may be moving, but that’s not for another 60 days at least.
