Practice: 1.5 (tbh), Rehearsal: 4.5. One of the plus sides of today’s mostly non-practice was that I listened to an hour and a half of recent lessons and transcribed my notes. This I think has been one of the biggest contributors to my growth this summer: writing. it. down. Recording the lesson in and of itself is useless. Listening to the recording affords me a second pass at everything I learned there- that alone helps me recall 1/3 of the total material that I had forgotten in the days since the lesson. But by taking notes, I get everything! And emphasizing different aspects of the lesson with different colors or thicknesses of pen (yay iPad with a stylus) makes it super easy to see what was really important, later on. For a week or two I can remember the “break through” moments but by writing it down (specifically reforming the idea in a short-hand version) I’m guaranteed to never lose it.
