My lesson in Sedona a couple of weeks ago was phenomenal! When I got home I was dealing with recovering from a sinus infection, catching up with teaching, and getting ready for Thanksgiving. It has been challenging to maintain the skills I refined while working with Clayton Haslop. I am also facing a busy holiday concert schedule in December.
It has been helpful to go back and listen to a recording I made of one of my lessons. I have also focused on deep breathing while counting beats which was a recurring theme in my lessons. Rather than stressing out about whether I remember everything we worked on, I am gradually infiltrating everything we worked on into my practicing and warmup, demonstrating while teaching, and in rehearsals. I also include Qi Gong as part of my daily practice.
