    Sunday! My favourite day regarding piano. Only fun and fun only. But you maybe have planned some more than I do. Hard practice? Maybe learning something new? No matter what is planned let's have loads of fun today playing simply because we can. So, I keep it short today! Play! Play! Play! Have fun and enjoy whatever level of mastery you are. I am still considering myself as beginner and though there are hard moments I still try to keep fun part almost all the way. So. Good day everybody. Take care.

    Again new week, again Monday, again whole week to do something about our skills. No matter how looked our last week, what we did wrong or right. Now we have whole week in front of us. Let's use it right to the full. Let's plan some action plan for this week, for today and simply do it. No matter how challenging it might be. With practice and time spend with our instruments we can move a bit forward again. No matter how bad we are, we can be much better when this week ends. No matter how great we are, still we can do something, something to play better or simply enjoy the process of learning, playing. Why throw away that time of pleasure and fun when we play? Let's challenge ourselves and play every day this week. Let's learn something new. Let's develop even further what we practised so far. Let's have fun... loads of fun. We start today, you and I. New week. Once we do it, once we practice again, we end up at the beginning of new week with much more then we have now... and then we start over again, and again, and again... never ending story Have fun, play, enjoy and have a great day today. Take care.

    Again new day, there is nothing to loose only everything to gain. Why not play again and gain some more for what we want from our piano journey or any other instrument we play. Again let's forget about what happened yesterday and be smarter today. Let's use experience we have to make this day the only we are in charge of as good as possible. I start every day with thought when I will play today my piano. Once decision/plan is made I follow. Mostly it works fine. Sometimes not, it happens. With thought in my mind that there is still something to do something just for me that brings the joy and happiness there is much easier to organise time to do it. Why we should waste some time wondering around about not so important stuff when we have something great to come during our day. So, focus. Do whatever needs to be done today and save some for our precious instruments. If you listen closely you can hear those instruments crying to play them Not really. I just imagined that. And since our instruments cry we need to put them nicely to sleep by playing them, right? So, take care for your instrument today and play. Have fun. Soon or later it will give you back your time spend with it delivering through your touch sounds you could only imagine when you started playing. Who knows maybe you will discover that is the thing you want to do till end of time. Who knows. So, let's play today, let's practice, let's have fun. Great day everybody.

    Yesterday I spent some time with a person full of enthusiasm starting her new life. It is not related to learn play an instrument but starting with something that is her passion. Simply beying around gave me a lot of energy to do my work no matter what. I figured we following our passion to play our chosen instrument are a little like that lady. If we follow with enthusiasm and practice no matter what, talk what we want to do even it is far in the future with our recent capabilities gives energy to others not only us. No matter how much must be done yet, we are on the course. That enthusiasm and believe that everything is possible is so motivating. I am glad we are like that. Let's be like that. Let's see all the hills we have to climb with our practice climbable. Let's spread that enthusiasm around. By following and talking with passion about our music journey we may inspire somebody to start their journey with something they love to do. See that you playing actually spread 'dream can come true' phrase around and we make our friends and people around do stuff they always wanted to do. Without even consciously trying we change peoples lives, we spread those sparks of 'everything is possible, and its never to late'. Let's be, through our commitment to play, to play better, to learn more kind of messengers that what we do on daily basis (our playing) is not only about work we need to do but also about passion we can explore even we are so busy with our daily routines, work etc. So, let's play again today, let's practice hard, let's share our passion with others. By accident we may push someone into direction of the dreams to follow. How great is that. It's not about how good we are right now, but what we do to get there where we want. Play. Have fun. Enjoy. Today is a day to do it again! Not tomorrow! Today. Play and practice hard today! This effort we put will pay us back soon or later, but I think I can say that certainly it will pay back unexpectedly... wonderful moments are about to come Have a great day.

    Another beautiful day and another chance to improve today. How much time we spend to play is completely up to us. 30 minutes? one hour? Maybe longer? We need to decide and do what suits us. I remember that when I started it was hard to play more then one hour. Now I could play easily more then two hours but there is limited time to do so. You probably can relate, having different duties during a day like job, family maybe pets to walk etc. But we need to find some time, this precious time just for us. I call it precious because at that time nothing matters for me, it is like clock stops for everything what is around me and only my clock is measuring time that left for me and my piano practice. Let's try to use it wisely as best as we can absorbing every moment to relax and have fun. Focusing on what it must be practised and done. It works better once we are focused. It gives more satisfaction because we make faster progress. So, let's be focused today and play again. Joy will come from accomplishment. Fun will be there by just playing. So, let's do it again TODAY no matter how long time we have. Each minute counts Take care.
