Warning: this episode is more rambling than usual, and contains some fairly awful and geeky singing. The results of gardening; a pep talk to kids; trying to make the practice room feel like the stage, my lifelong quest to improve my focus; a strategy (from this book) to work on accuracy and rhythm in 25/4; a confession about scales; a plan about jazz involving a place and a book; some serious theory geekery, including how I teach sonata form (see above warning about the singing).
