– The biggest help I can give myself when I study is breathing.
– Taking the piece in sections is good as well.. after I feel I have familiarised myself with the music text and worked on the details.. Why do I do this? It helps me become more specific as to what I want to do and how I want to proceed.
– It is hard to focus on my legs… I am not certain however as to how important that is during practice..
– I am finding it hard to relax my lower back and pelvis.
-> I want to learn to play slowly
->…to play with my heart/soul first
->… to not put myself into little boxes (Have to’s etc.)
->…to relax my wrists
->…to make music sing…
->…to polish my phrasing.
