With summer holidays upon us, well at least in the southern hemisphere where I am based, many of us have a lovely long break to look forward to. This is a great chance to set up a regular, relaxed practice routine and give your playing a boost along. It’s a good opportunity to learn some new repertoire you’d like to focus on in the coming year but remember as I always say; every practice session should contain some work on tone, technique, articulation and repertoire in order for it to be a really worthwhile session.
