A week of the holidays has whizzed by. I have 101 things to do but my practice continues in amongst being the Easter bunny (my kids), visiting my mother in hospital, building shelves, shopping, cooking and all the normal stuff. I have been practicising my recital pieces mainly. I'm not actually sure I'm making much difference. I am trying to make the Strathspey bowing smoother as my teacher has said. i am not totally convinced this is traditional but its better for tone.
I am also trying to fit in improvisation practice. I volunteered to go fairly early for my improv exam - 30 April. Leaves more time later for the other things I have coming up.
Also doing position work (various studies by people like (Mazs, Hohmann and Scholz) and technique (vibrato and bowing). This is all helping.
i have ordered some more books on bowing (both from the Library and Amazon) - keeps me motivated.
