I’ve been working on the first movement of Mozart Sonata XV K. 300 for a few days. It’s a pretty good sight-reader, but I’ve also forced myself to pay attention to rhythms. Fingerings are biting my butt, but parts of it sound like actual music. I think I’ve practiced it a couple of hours at a time. It’s nice to have that free-flow focus on a piano piece again. It’s been a while.
I’ve also dusted off the old modes to use as warm-ups. I’m going to list them here for myself in case I ever forget them again [which is likely].
Ionian: Major scale
Dorian: Minor scale w/ #6
Phrygian: Minor scale w/ b2
Lydian: Major scale w/ #4
Mixo-Lydian: Major scale w/ b7
Aeolian: minor scale [natural]
Locrian: everything b but 1 & 4
