Daily Exercises

There are at least two purposes for daily exercises: to perfect an etude for audition (lesson or other performance . . . ) or to maintain technique. It helps to read —through— etudes for a good/productive daily workout. Among my favorites are the Giampieri 16 Daily Studies. I especially like #4 for flexibility and agility—it can make a great daily warmup. I like to practice each pattern s-l-o-w-l-y first, then repeat with quicker tempo. Sometimes, multiple repetitions help to iron out the technical wrinkles.
