What Did I Work On?
Theory, Scales, Arpeggios and a bit of La La Land.
I had the ‘La La Land’ soundtrack in my head so I thought I’d spend some time on it this week.
What I’ve learned.
How to fix a sustain pedal! Earlier this week I managed to break the sustain pedal on the upright piano. Rather than paying someone to have a look at it, I thought I’d open up the piano and fix it myself. After a few minutes of opening up the piano and fiddling around, I figured out what the problem was and I sorted it out.
What Did I Struggle With?
The practice of playing to a metronome is somewhat difficult (and annoying!). I know in the long run it’ll be good for me so I have to keep it up.
A Goal For Next Week.
Start learning a song on the Jazz Grade 3 syllabus.
Best Learning Tips.
Always practice to a metronome. It’ll help with rhythm and timing.
This week I’ve strayed away from the Jazz Grade 3 syllabus to practice a song that I wanted to learn for myself. I realise with the time constraints that I’ve given myself, it’s probably best to get back on the syllabus and try and get as much done as humanly possible.
