This is my fourth entry of my practice log for koto. I played two sections which were, ‘page 17 line 3 measure 3~ page 18 line 1 measure 2’ and ‘page 20 line 1 measure 2~ line 2 measure 2’. I played these sections because during the class, I messed up the rhythm sometimes. Also, it is repeated in this piece quite often, so I thought it would help me a lot.
Improvements I could make:
As I mentioned in my other posts, I still need to work on my rhythm. It is uneven and too fast sometimes. I thought I should strengthen my fingers to play the strings carefully and control it so that I won’t slide and play the notes too fast. I need to work on my transitions too because sometimes I’m late when I go on to the next part which has a different pattern.
