Here’s my second practice log for Maureen’s Waltz! You can see the difference in my playing compared to the day before, when I did the first practice log.
Hello everyone! So I thought I’d do another practice video for you. In my last practice log, I was practicing through the first 30 minutes of a new piece called Maureen’s Waltz (Catriona McKay). I’ve recorded every practice session with this piece, and it’s now two weeks later! I can’t show you everything but I picked one I thought would be the most useful for you to see, with interesting practice skills.
After that first day going through the piece, I practiced section A. Then after the recording, I went through section B. The day after I went through both sections. Section B is what I’m going to be showing you today. In the video you’ll also see me starting to go through section C, working on the fingering. I will also be showing you how I loop sections when practising – I focus quite a bit on that, because it’s a very effective way to practice!
Later on in the video, you’ll notice I start getting tired, so I speak about when to stop and give yourself a break, and how to deal with new mistakes popping up in previous places you’ve already gone through.
Doing this kind of video is still very new to me, so I hope you enjoy seeing my process and progress. Enjoy!
