30 minutes today isn’t so bad, a little hard on the fingers and my muscles are bloody sore but it just means I need to build up my strength and the padding on my fingers. I love watching videos of myself playing the violin; listening to the sounds of the notes, studying my bowing techniques and postural assessment, then making notes in my little book for the next time I practice. I think every wednesday I’ll post a video to see how good I’ve gotten with the violin and perhaps every thursday will be for my singing…
I also came across an article as I wondered how long people usually practiced their instrument. This particular article had me intrigued and so I figured I’d share it with the world! How many hours a day should you practice?
Today was my offical practice day to, although I didn’t practice my singing –which is a kick in the butt– but I ended up falling asleep from exams making me pull all nighters this whole week.
Anyways, here’s my first “official” day on the violin. It might make you wince but it can only get better (I hope).
