Today's practice was playing that Baião tune on silver flute every time I needed a break from editing... many five-minute sessions, and I'll be honest: It's working.
Just put the wee one to bed and now I'm running down to the basement for ten minutes of long tones and maybe a little baião before bed. Crawling in with Steve is more appealing but the commitment is made... so I gotta do it.
Sleep tight all and catch you in the morning. It's clear: the only way to do this practice thing right is to do it first thing. But that 5:00 am alarm feels AWFULLY EARLY.
