Abstract: This paper applies macro concepts of athletic endurance training to music performance by adapting a running training plan into a multi-week bassoon practice sequence leading up to a musical goal. The adapted practice program reflects a training plan for an endurance athlete. The purpose is to examine if adopting an athletic-based approach can be helpful to musicians. The sequence was followed and the results show that specified practice programs can be beneficial in music pedagogy.
