New links to practice routines for Students

Students:

At the bottom right hand corner you will find links to two different practice routines. Beginners and new students, look at Jim Klages routine, page 1 and 2. More advanced students, please copy the 3 part Adams Routine and Mr. Klages' pages 7-22 for scale and mode patterns.

We will suppliment these practice routines with my own exercises and other etudes and methods.

Crazy year!

Well...I haven't posted here since December!! This year has been non-stop crazy busy with teaching. I cannot wait for mid June to hit and lessons/teaching to come to a slow down. My students are great, but I need a break to focus on playing.

Since advancing in Calgary I haven't had any luck at a few auditions. It's been very frustrating, as my playing is really going well. I'm just too exhausted and need a break. I also have been diagnosed with arthritis in my left shoulder and probably have it in my left jaw as well. I'm going to focus on rehab and really playing for others who I admire and respect to get me on the right track.

Thanks go out to Rene Hernandez who listens to me more than he probably can stand, and to Andrew Balio and Joe Foley. Your help and expertise is much appreciated and admired.

Now to shed and focus on playing!
