Ugly disclaimer from Ray Chen - This is what a real practice session looks like

Bookmark and Share

a message from Ray Chen........ 'The purpose of this video is to give people a fair idea of how a real practice session looks like when you approach a piece from scratch. You usually hear the sparkly clean finished product, but it tends to always start somewhere deep in ugly-town. Sometimes practicing is demotivating, especially when Señor Show-off over on instagram has uploaded a perfect 1-minute clip of themselves nailing that stupidly difficult passage.

If you feel like you've hit a wall in practicing, just know that EVERYBODY has struggles. I hope you feel better after watching me get my ass kicked by the first 2 phrases of the Sauret Cadenza. 

Now go practice! 

Much love to you all and thanks for watching! :) '
