    • Martin How you do keep encage?  I find it so difficult to keep practicing the same routing only to see very little progress.

      Brian Hi Brian! I am sorry that I didn't catch that question as the livestream already started! But I think she had some helpful advises in her talk that could help you, one that comes to my mind is: Stop and ask what it is that makes a certain passage so tiring? Can you maybe implement a few more micro rests to take of the heavy lifting of your left hand? Is this the optimal fingering or is this implementing stress into the piece? 

      I hope that helps!
