MEMORIZING MUSIC—BACK TO FRONT
1. Divide the music into logical sections or phrases, short enough that you can memorize each in about 30 minutes. (A good first choice might be six to 16 measures, depending on the complexity of the piece.)
2. On your first day of practice, memorize the piece's last section first. Include the musical notes and expression in your work, but leave tempo and technique for later sessions. Study the section a measure at a time, and review from memory.
