Data and the Practicing Musician

Jeff Tillinghast has some interesting thoughts about how a computer app called MusicJournal can help provide objective data as to how well the musician is progressing towards his/her goal.  I’m not familiar with this app, but I am skeptical that our computer technology is quite up to the task of assessing our progress to make this more productive at practicing, though it is getting a lot better.  I am a big fan of The Practice Revolution, a book that gives musicians concrete techniques for practicing more efficiently.  However, as technology gets better at recording our actions and intentions, I can see how musicians can use technology to better organize their practice sessions and, perhaps, share that progress with their voice teachers/conductors.
