Re: How do you know if a piece is too hard/too easy when first reading it?
I want to echo the idea of having only 2 months for UIL. I'm nearly 2 decades in and finally had this realization last year after attending Reid Atkinson's TMEA clinic. He discussed scheduling "macro" to "micro" and it was eye opening. He talked about scheduling every week within a "concert cycle" and really seeing how many rehearsal days you have.
If you paid for the audio recordings for TMEA 2020, you can go listen to it. The handout isn't there, but you might be able to contact him directly.
