My Practice Stand

Presently on my stand:

Isaiah Billè: Nuovo Metodo Per Contrabbasso
—This is the first of seven (!) books in the method. I bought these when Mars was going out of business in Tampa for less than $35 for the first six books. ‘ve never really worked through them and am now to determine their viability as a teaching method. Plus, they’re helping me develop a good, long practice routine.

Ron Carter Basslines: All Bird
—Trying to build my four-on-the-floor reading and swing chops. my goal is to get through the whole book in one session by the end of the week.

Max Dimoff’s Warmups
—This is the Cleveland Orchestra warmup set about which I’ve already posted. Excellent, but tough!

Excertps for the USF Orchestra Seating Audition
—Two mvts from Mozart’s Haffner and two from Brahms Two. The Mozart (especially the Presto) is all about dexterity and speed and the Brahms, for me, is challenging in nuance.

Yardbird Suite
—From Aebersold’s “All Bird,” I have to have the head and changes down cold for the Jazz seating audition.

  • Looks like a good set-up. I like the mounted metronome.
