Day 163 of piano practice 2/10 '19
I’ll be honest. The practicing for 30 minutes a day or 3.5 hours per week thing is not 100% accurate. We were out of town for a bit. Since “30 minutes a day or 3.5 hrs/week” and “16 units of information” does not equal predictable results, I’m finding it harder to explain what the results are. It feels like problem solved or puzzle cracking, but it barely feels like music.
Anyway, here’s Wonderwall. Plenty of mistakes. You can also hear Sassy playing in the background.
A result I can guarantee with 100% accuracy is that no matter how well you can play a piece, as soon as the camera is on, you will make mistakes.
The good news is that I can now move on to learning about sharps & flats, which means the work will sound less boring. Yay for leveling up!
EDITED TO ADD: this is the next piece I have to work on, which I believe is standard issue for every high school marching band in America.
All I can think of is the episode of Strangers With Candy when Gerri is in the school jazz band, as a scat singer.
EDITED TO ADD AGAIN: I got Half Time Band and Greensleeves in a pen. Not captured, but in a pen. I think another day of muscle memory practice will do it.
