What Did You Miss This Week? (Week 453 #498)

The eight o'clock Performance Class had a good time Monday night running through new tunes people are working on.

And with Joe away for a week, we gave RickEy the floor to talk a few minutes about tracking your practice time within different categories so you're sure to be hitting the various types of things you should be spending focused time on.

His handout outlining practice categories is here, and you should consider getting a tracking app such as ATracker, plugging the categories you think make sense for your growth into it and take your practice time seriously by tracking (and graphing!) how you spend your time.

One of the categories he talked about was ear training and he has a bunch of practice tracks he's designed and willing to share here. They play a few tones in a given key and your job is to play back what you hear. Think it's easy? Try the same thing in a different position!

Class Notes
  • Joe's back next week and all classes proceed as normal.
  • But Joe will be away again for one week, August 1.
