Just wanted to post an update on how things are going, since I've been off for a while!
Got back into taking lessons, now from a good friend/mentor of mine here in the Daytona Area
Unfortunately, I have little time to practice because I'm working full time as a manager, but during my breaks I practice.
My teacher is currently running me on a regiment of long tones (but of course!), and we've discussed really building a good daily routine.
Getting the Irons book at last, as well as the Theicke (spelling?) book. Looking forward to this! I've sworn an oath to him to not overthink my playing, to focus on the sound.
Hope all are doing well!
