I wonder why September marks the start of new seasons for musicians. Yet another holdover from summers off for harvest? Or preparation for amusement during the long dark days of Winter? I surely appreciate the latter. If we have as much snow this winter as we've had rain this autumn, I'll be suffering from severe cabin fever shortly.
Now that my own musical activities are back in full swing, I find that I am again looking for a little tune-up in the practice department. More efficient = more activities I can participate in, you know. So I am delighted to find a couple of blogs that are focusing on practice, one for the month of October, and the other as its raison d’être.
If you haven't already, join me in studying Chris Foley's The Collaborative Piano Blog and Ben Clapton's Music Practice Tips this month.
