Moving up to the current date, my counting is definitely better, although subdividing rhythms remains a challenge. As for my current lesson, the status looks as follows:
- Scherzo: try memorizing so you can really focus on dynamics. The dynamics were too level. Play with bravado, particularly on the sforzando.
- Schroeder: pay attention to drawing a straight bow, particularly on the A string.
- Start practicing more duets! Today, we worked over a four-voiced holiday song. My intonation, particularly on the F needs work. I’m not sure how to manage this sort of thing for a particular note. I’m supposed to listen for whether a note fit the chords “already in the air”. It’s still a mystery to me.
