These pieces are kicking my ass, and I can’t seem to play them at tempo unless I totally ditch intonation. They’re just runs. Maybe I should just quit, after all. It’s just pointless over the hill stuff and I should stop pretending.

Tomorrow’s practice :

  • m.52-92 review
  • m. 122-140 new
  • Rehearsal J-K

One thing I have to say is that this is really forcing me to focus my time. There are 200 measures in this piece and if I take chunks of 20 per day, I should be wrapped up in 10 days, leaving the rest to polish.

RHYTHM and TEMPO must come before pitch. Then pitch,then put it all together.
