  • 1 hour per day doing some editing work on the movie:

Edit details:  305 minutes watching NewDoc Editing module on the story arc.
  • 30 minutes per day basic music practice:

Details:  electric warm ups on the MojoCaster.  Work on Dies Irae.  Emphasis on playing the piece as a whole and smoothing out the octave work.

Everlasting God - Intro and solo (preparation for New Hope Practice)

  • 15 minutes per day (minimum) exercise:

Exercise summary
30 minutes of intervals on the elliptical machine
60 seconds above 140 steps per minute
30 seconds above 160 steps per minute
Total “sets”:  20
Total time:  30 minutes
  • 15 minutes per day (minimum) scoring work for the movie:

Details:  15 minutes working on R&B chord progression.

Notes:  Practice at New Hope with Kenny meant adjustments.  I felt good about folding the rehearsal preps in with my usual practice and score work.  Preps for the service on Sunday will mean further adjustments, but if I can put in the bulk of those preps in on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, I’ll still have a good chunk of time to put to editing work on Saturday.
