Rationale for this Project


Summary of Progress During January – March 2018
  1. I spent 90 hours in 1Q18 on this project (178 hours YTD, where by “YTD” – Year to Date – I mean the (academic) year commenced in October 2017). That’s 70% of the planned effort (81% YTD). Overall, 14% of my Project effort in the Quarter was directed towards this project (making 14% YTD) – as against 17% planned (15% YTD).
  2. As can be seen, I took this project seriously this quarter, but couldn’t – or at least didn’t – put in quite the hours I’d planned. I intend to make some real progress, and when I have will consider re-starting my oboe lessons (though probably not piano).
  3. I’m continuing to improve my stamina as an oboist, and can now fairly comfortably play for 30 minutes. My aim is two of these sessions a day, and I achieved that occasionally towards the end of the period.
  4. I’ve continued studies of music theory, completing a read-through of "Taylor (Eric) - The AB Guide to Music Theory - Part 1".
  5. Aural again didn’t get look in.
  6. The excellent Yamaha P-45 Electric Piano with deluxe earphones at last got some usage, and I’ve now managed to play Bach’s Prelude – using "Rhodes (James) - How to Play the Piano" – with some competence.
  7. The rescheduled concert at Abbeyfield eventually took place, but Julie and I couldn’t make it as Henry had been ill and we were collecting him from doggie hospital.
