  • When I was young I played the violin enough to get to the point where I would be reading ahead in the score and planning.

    For the violin, most of the playing is straight-forward with a small number of more or less equally good alternatives, but there is an occassional sequence that is a potential trap; where you have to use the right fingering/bowing or else you have real difficulty. I would propagate backward from that point, planning how to arrive at that required configuration, eventually (and generally fairly quickly) coming to a point where the added requirements do not eliminate any of the alternative choices for its predecessor. After those strictly essential portions were dealt with, remaining alternatives could be selected based on ease of play or sound quality or momentary whim, which ever seemed most sigificant.
