I’ve been in the panyard all day practicing after the masterclass. We had some changes in the music last night. Our arranger, Andy Narell, played them by ear to us and we had to pick them up. We refer to this as rote learning. I’m trying to get this changes settled in my hands today and review my part. Earlier, a tuner adjusted a couple bad notes on my instrument and right now I’m waiting for our 7:30-11:00 rehearsal.
