Rationale for this Project


Summary of Progress during July - September 2019
  1. I spent 99 hours in 19Q3 on this Project, or related work (410.75 hours YTD, where for "YTD" - Year to Date - I mean the (academic) year that commenced in October 2018). That's 84.4% of the planned effort (90% YTD). Overall, 14.7% of my Project effort in the Quarter was directed towards this project (making 16.5% YTD) - as against 17.6% planned (16.2% YTD).
  2. I’ve decided to learn to play the oboe properly, so have re-commenced weekly oboe lessons with my former teacher as of September 2018. Things seem to be going very well, and I now get complimented on my standard of play.
  3. My intention was take the oboe practical exams under the auspices of Trinity College London – Grade VI and up – with the possibility – if I get to pass practical Grade VIII – of taking ABRSM Theory Grade V as this would allow me to take the ABRSM versions of the oboe practicals.
  4. Grade VI Oboe was pencilled in for July 2019, but I decided to prepare for Grade VII first for two reasons:–
    1. Firstly, to make myself more comfortable with Grade VI, but
    2. Secondly, to give myself more time to improve my sight-reading and oral skills.
  5. Now I’ve decided against taking exams for the time being, but to practice a wide selection of works required at the Grade that I would have been taking had my aural skills been up to it. Currently I’m focusing on Grade VII, but hope to move on to Grade VIII later in this academic year.
  6. Further details follow:-
Music (Total Hours = 99)
  1. Music - Administration (Total Hours = 11)
  2. Music - Aural (Total Hours = 4.75)
  3. Music - Oboe (Total Hours = 76.5)
  4. Music - Theory (Total Hours = 6.75)

Plans for the Near Future
Progress to Date

The lists of items performed is cumulative, so I’ve hived off the history to a separate document7, which needs a minor update.
