Great rehearsals this week (Saturday & Monday) and it was really good having Caroline with us Monday. I think that will be our plan for the next two rehearsals, so I’ve added it in red to the list below.
For me, I’m working all this music 3 times a day (morning, afternoon, evening) for about 15+ minutes. I go one time through with one of the YouTube Videos (with my music until memorized) and utilizing the choral-ography as much as possible. (I think I’ve got 7 or so tabs with YouTubes in my Chrome- I just do one after another!)
I don’t know what your discipline is (this one may not work for you), but if you don’t have a daily discipline, develop one where you can spend some time with the music. Thanks!
