I just began my practice session. Besides playing a few easy Gs and a chromatic scale from C below to C in the staff, I play harmonic slurs. I have a long way to go to play these fast. I mention harmonic slurs because I believe that learning how to use your aperture corners is a vital piece of the puzzle. This is one of the most important exercises for us to practice. You may want to fill in your practice chart completely on Largo Status Stage and then go back and play softly as described. If you passed this stage, you probably should go back to the beginning and use the 1% rule. I don’t know how many people are like me and found that old habits die hard.
