On my music stand: August 2011

On my music stand in August 2011. From the left:

  • Rodrigo's "Fantasia para un Gentilhombre",
  • notes to myself
  • "Guitar Playing and how it works"
  • Alan Fraser's "Honing the Pianistic Self Image".

On my practice stand - Rodrigo, Fraser and Inglis

Alan Fraser's book arrived in the mail today. It contains the most lucid and engaging descriptions I have yet read of what it feels like to have good, musical technique and how to achieve it.
