What's Your Mindset While Practicing?
Stephen Fine posted a topic in The FingerboardAt the end of lessons I always ask, "Do you have any other questions?" Almost all of my students always say, "No." But, I have one who usually has a good question either about repertoire, posture, technique, or practice. Today he asked me, "What should my mindset be while practicing?" Obviously, it's a very general question, and, as I told him, mindset shifts throughout a practice session, but what would your answers be to the question? I rambled for a while while trying to answer his question, but I think the heart of my answer was to "trust in the method, don't allow frustration to dictate how you practice."

How fast do you lose/regain ground?
Rue posted a topic in The FingerboardI, somewhat inadvertently, took a break from the bassoon this summer. I hadn't played since the middle of June. I picked it up yesterday and omg...awful. Today though, I was appreciably better. Hopefully I will get most of my chops back by the time rehearsals start. Which had me wondering how quickly ever one else loses and gains ground.
