Efficiency in practicing

Gene Moy, a grade school friend who recently became aware of this blog and my online practice log, led me to the University of Connecticut's Music Performance Lab. At their website, you'll find SYMP, "Study Your Music Practice," a software tool that facilitates empirical study of music practice techniques.

By helping musicians to study themselves, as well as their colleagues and students, we hope to learn more about what musicians actually do when they practice. We expect that empirical study of music practice will lead to strategies for making practice more effective and rewarding, and less frustrating and time consuming.
This is practice log maximus! Go Huskies!
