Goal Setting-The Range Journal

A blog post on goal setting by tubist, Andrew Hitz has inspired me to begin setting goals for my playing.

I picked up this Note Book at the CMEA conference with the intention of jotting down melodies that I would eventually turn into musical masterpieces.  While I currently wait for inspiration, I had another idea how to use my little notebook: as a Range Journal.  The idea is simple enough:  You record the lowest and highest notes you can play and include the date.  This could be done with just a piece of manuscript paper as well.  Record your improvement at regular intervals as you work toward increasing your range.  Not only does it hold you accountable, but you now have a written document that you can track how much you’ve improved and how long it took you to get there.
