    So tomorrow night is my junior recital, and I'm wondering how much playing I should be doing between tonight and tomorrow.

    I'm playing the Arutiunian, Canzon by Scheidt, and Quintet by Michael Kamen.

    Any insight would be great, thanks!

    I would do my normal daily routine. Don't over do it. On the other hand, you want your chops to be in top playing shape. So don't skip a day either.

    What I'm trying to say is, if you have a routine that works for you,don't change it.

    Do not play until your chops are tired, but do play - hit the trouble spots if you have any and make sure you cover you bases in terms of flexibility, long tones, articulation, etc.

    I usually play a bit less the day before, and just visualize things going great. I practice a couple of tricky bits, and do lots of long tones and clarke, so the next day my lips feels very relaxed, and ready to rumble!

    Thanks guys, I'm pretty practiced up so I'm not too, too worried about it, more just kind of worried about the high C at piano on the last piece I'm doing.

    "Hope for the best, prepare for the worst" I guess that now is too late to prepare anything, so the only thing you still have is wishful thinking.
