Day 8 of #100daysofpractice
. Also, this was my first take for both of these. Not gonna lie, I was crazy tired today (getting up at 6 for a gig is not my thing), so my tone and intonation are kind of iffy.
For Bach, I need to work on intonation and phrasing, especially with the chords. I noticed I have a lot of tension when I play this piece, especially with my bow arm.
Elgar...I haven’t worked on it in weeks, so it’s super rusty. I’ve only worked on it once with my teacher. There were definitely some good things in there, but I really need to improve on intonation (in the chords and that one arpeggio) and not letting my sound taper. ❗️One more thing—in my last practice video, I got a lot of helpful feedback from several people. I would love to hear advice from you all, whether it’s things I’m doing well or things I could work on (especially the latter). Feel free to comment, or message me.
