Hilary Hahn does 100 pressupsmain
The US violinist whose comeback from sabbatical was thwarted by Covid lockdown has embarked on another 100-day practice marathon.
2020 was a very challenging year for continuity. I need to build back, for my violin-muscle health and mental health. The reason is pretty simple: I feel the time has come.
This round of 100 days will carry into the spring. It will be my fourth 100 series. When I started the hashtag and project a few years ago, I invited people to do their own #100daysofpractice, for the process rather than the results. I’m so impressed that 536,000 posts have now been contributed. That speaks to the power of the practicing community. I’m glad that this space allows us to share the true experience. Practice is a universal project, though it often feels solitary. At the end of the day, it is the one sure thing that brings all musicians together in spirit.
