High Intermediate Practice Plan (5. Month)

Welcome to your 5. month intermediate curriculum!  If you are still working on something from the 4. month practice plan, don’t worry too much about the new lessons. Take as much time as you need. In the other hand, I encourage you to check out the new lessons even if you are not entirely done with the previous exercises and etudes.  The only reason you should put the new lessons on hold if you feel that they are too complicated.
