already day 10/100!
we finally got my schedule worked out and I’m now taking an applied music class! I’m really excited to start using this extra practice time!!!
This is the excerpt that we’re playing for tomorrow’s master class! This was recorded after maybe 40min on piccolo and it’s also right before I learned that there is more fatigue on piccolo than flute. I was using this as a reference to see where I needed to accent more and realized that I need to accent more on every accent!
If I’m being honest, I’m not totally sure how master class is going to go tomorrow. I killed my lips playing high notes for 30min and my style wasn’t amazing today. I have to remember that THERES NO SUCH THING AS A PERFECT PERFORMANCE/AUDITION/PASS OFF and that all I can do now is keep those things in mind when I play in master class!
GOALS FOR TOMORROW: play with style, give the best rep I can in master class, and start working on next weeks chunk!!!

Isn't it crazy how some things just take you back? I have a body spray that I first started wearing as Sportsworld (church kids' camp) counselor, and now I can't spray it without thinking of Sportsworld. When I drink hot honey water to sooth my throat, I can only think of long fall/winter seasons preparing for All-star choir auditions. There's a special K yogurt cereal that reminds me of breakfast at 5 am before volleyball practice my freshman year of high school. And, relevant to this picture, when I wear chacos, I think of my mission trip to Austria. I just think it's so cool and powerful that these pathways can be created in our brains to stay connected with the past. What are some of these things for you? #blastfromthepast

Today I practiced one of my All State Etudes, otherwise known as Weissenborn etude 27. I have been really trying to get the whole first part in one breathe, and have really slowed it down to clean. The second video is me attempting to play it close to full tempo lol, it’s not clean but it’s getting there! Also I shouldn’t be practicing these because I literally have several more months before the audition lol
Day 146 - There was a bunch of noise in the background but I worked a bit on the state etudes today. Had 6 hours of rehearsal so that’s fun. This Blazhevich #60 ! Oh yeah there’s @saundersevan being a big meanie
Results aren’t possible without slow practice! 🐢
* Does it feel easy in your fingers? * Do your note endings match? * Are your fingers relaxed and active? * Do you 💖 your sound? 🎵
If you answered “YES” to these questions, then you’re ready to move the metronome up! If “NO,” keep going slow! You can do it! 👏

During the next couple of days I will be doing a couple ALL-STATE posts, specifically TMEA, per requests. During high school, I got the results I was looking for in TMEA: Principal cellist for Symphony (top) orchestra freshman year, and made it within top 5 for pre-screenings for my junior and senior year, even though I didn’t end up attending the actual convention either of those years. Therefore, throughout these posts and stories, I will attempt to both give tips for the process, an also go over the actual etudes. Today, I sightread and looked at the first etude, the Popper No. 10. Some things that stood out to me: lots of long phrases within the 8th note lines, so bow control is crucial. You must practice making bow changes smoothly as to not disturb the flow of the etude. even though it is an etude, it definitely has a line and you must try to sing it out and express yourself, therefore distinguishing yourself from the thousands of other cellists. Some transitions between thumb and regular position that can be practiced slowly. Any comments of concerns, please lmk! Also if you have any friends trying to audition for All-State cello, please share this video/account with them! #cello#cellist#music#classicalmusic#video#allstate#TMEA#practicing#allregion#practicing#popper
