Practice Log for Sunday, June 18

Spent a whopping 10 minutes running through some scales and arpeggios. It was an impromptu practice session because I didn't have time for a "real" one. I worked on F, Dm, C, and Am for the scales--easy ones. Along with scales, I also do chord inversions in octaves. That's kind of new for me (the octave part, not the inversion part) and has taken some getting used to.

Arpeggios are easy, whether I'm playing them in similar motion or contrary motion. I don't know why I don't have more trouble with them. The only keys that I'm sometimes sloppy with are, strangely enough, Bb major and B minor.

I'm headed to a music performance this evening (which will include a pianist!). If I'm not too tired, I'll have a "real" practice when I get home.

Who knows--maybe I'll be so inspired by the performance that I'll want to practice into the wee hours of the night!

Update: The performance was wonderful, but now it's 10:17 p.m. and I'm TIRED! Oh well, I'll just have to doubly-immerse myself in piano tomorrow, since I missed today. :)

Yes I'm still playing, though not enough! I should have progressed much further.

Spring Flowers

I took a couple of days off from work last week, and I spent all day Thursday digging up a garden and planting flowers. It's been a week...
