I really hope you are doing well! I wanted to let you know what I did throughout June and what I am planning on doing throughout July!
As you probably know, I have added the Cajón and the Ocarina to my repertoire of instruments and now I am finally able to record some videos to show my progress!
Since the Cajón is quite different to my other instruments, I plan on doing some videos on basic technique and basic workouts. The sheet music for those workouts will soon be published here on my website, once I get a hold of the basics and am able to write my own exercises !
Anyway, let me give you another update on one of my instruments: the piano! So far, I have been following a book method, called “Die Russische Klavierschule” (The russian school of piano) and I must say, that I am not quit thrilled by it anymore. That’s why I want to give my piano practice a different touch in experimenting with a new method I wrote myself. This method is a collection of stuff and chops I learnt on my other instruments (most notably the guitar). The goal of this method is to work on the fundamentals first; not just piano related fundamentals but rather musical fundamentals. I am soon going to publish an article on it but for now I want you to know that I am going to change my practice plan for the piano, starting with July 2017!
