    Next week, next Monday, next time to be used for our piano. I have already my plan in place: My plan for today and more So there is nothing other left then follow it. So, no matter you are planning your sessions, or you just take your instrument or sit by your piano it is time for me and you to play again. It is the only way to get better, it is great way to enjoy the music, who knows maybe one day you will create some piece of music others will learn me included Anyway, I think this is great way of starting this week like any other as well. With playing our instruments so they don't sit there in our rooms covered with dust. We will not let that happen, right? We will play! Today! ...and have fun all the way. I wish you great practice session. Take care.

    Not so great yesterday with my practice. Too late start I guess. More or less 80% of my plan was done. Not so bad I think. Now is new plan. Have it yours in place and follow. Sometimes we struggle to learn new things, but is so worth it to keep going. Once we master it, it pays off with joy we feel, pride and enthusiasm for more. So, like usually we need to go through the same process when it is new for us, almost impossible to play then with practice it appears doable and with more and more practice we actually learn how to play it, then it is last thing left to do to master it to the level that satisfies us ... and then we start over again, and again, and... So, let's practice today. Let's have fun. Let's let the music fill our hearts. Have a great day!

So, if you like to stayed tuned and read words I write recording my progress you are more then welcome there: Here I will be on daily basis
    Here I will put some updates only with my progress from time to time. Keep playing! Keep learning! Do it daily it is so worth it! Have fun with your instrument and good luck. It is not good by, it is I'll see you later here and on daily basis: Here

    I hope you all have great Sunday. Mine is about to be great in few hours when I will complete my FUN PRACTICE PLAN for Sunday. I hope you practice hard every day and already are better since my last post, not that that last post was somehow crucial for you Anyway, play hard today, plan your week of practice in your mind or on paper, set your mind to have that time for you and your piano or other instrument you play and stick to your goals... every day practice will do the job. Soon or later it will happen. PRACTICE. HAVE FUN.
    That is all for now, see you here next Sunday Daily updates on my blog.
    Have a great day, and great practice!

    'Sangburd' thank you for kind words, there is someone who was reading it Thanks. Yes we need to consistently go further if we want one day be good at something. I always say, though maybe I heard it somewhere and simply repeat that over and over again that: DISCIPLINE IS NOT ENEMY OF ENTHUSIASM, yes. That is why I work on my discipline (not easy task though with me) because discipline and consistency over time create great results for us and people around. Worth doing it. And since I guess we all like to play some instrument pretty good one day WE NEED TO KEEP GOING! EVERY DAY! That is why we are here on this forum, trying to learn or find answers on our own journeys, right... Here my thanks to everybody who participates helping us, beginners and more advanced musicians! Great effort. Thanks.
    Going back to today, I did some work what will happen with me on my blog: HERE.
    Here I will just mention that I wish you great practice today. I don't let myself even thinking you will not do it. Simply DO IT.
    Have Fun.
    Have a great day.
    Read my plan and some more: Here (who knows maybe you are a bit like me and this what I do there will help you as it helps me)
    and last: Let's PLAY NOW!

    All right. Tuesday. My work is done to plan today's day and give you some words from me: HERE Most is said there and here I want to just add: KEEP PLAYING! Play what you like the most, practice those skills, improve daily, once we add up all those hours spent playing, well, do it and you will see what happens. I can only tell that it will build your enthusiasm and hunger for MORE! Worth to struggle sometimes with some exercises, skills we develop. After all, after today's session of practice we will become again one step closer to our goals! Sounds good right? Let's take action and play. My plan like mentioned above HERE Good day to everybody.

    Failure yesterday following my plan, well, happens. Not going to cry about it. Improvements done. I hope you were yesterday on the right path and had great practice session and loads of fun. Today is another day though, and we need to work on our skills again, my plan and few more words there: Blog post. I have started to play with FB a bit as well, will post there what is on my blog, so if you actually reading it, for sure there will be updates there: FB page (it is early stage so not much there yet, one step at the time right?)
    All right have a great time with music you play today. Practice! Enjoy!
    Take care

    New day, new chances to improve, new opportunity to spend time with our lovely instruments we play, in my case it is piano.
    So, as usually I prepared my plan for today, I empowered myself with the quote that came from JFK, I prepared my morning routine piece for tomorrow: use it if you like, all is there: HERE Blog or FB
    Most of all, let's not forget to practice again today. After all it is what we love to do, if not yet, keep going, build the habit and soon or later you will fell in love in playing. At the beginning it is always a bit of struggle.
    Enjoy your session today, I will be with you in that enjoyment by having loads of fun with mine Take care.

    ... and life goes on. Yesterday is lost forever. Now is time to take as much as possible from today. Time to work hard again to save as much time for our piano (or any other instrument you play) session. It is fun right? Why not to do it every day? There are so many challenges we face every day... let's relax and play! I did my part of planning and I am ready to follow. So, let's have loads of fun playing today, and becoming a bit better again then yesterday. Play, have fun, enjoy!
    My plan and few more stuff there: my blog post.
    My new FB page here: Share with me your plan there.
    Take care till tomorrow

    Are you ready to play today again? My Saturday is quite busy today. I don't have much time left for my piano. But even half hour will make my day based on circumstances. Will start soon. Find your time. Practice. Get better again
    As usually I prepared some my day insides for you here: FB post (new thing, still working on it, will appreciate if you like it )
    All right, I need to run, I hope you will have great day, full of excitement and... wait a minute, you will play so that is like given once you do it

    And another Sunday, another day when we can use our skills to play our instruments, in my case piano, another day to improve maybe a bit, another day to have fun. I am ready to start. Are you?
    As usually I posted on my Blog and FB some more. Read it if you like... but certainly find time to enjoy your music. Play, practice, have fun... Whatever is your plan for today, find some for music. I think it is so worth it! Take care.

    Are you ready to start next week with some music? Yes? Great! Play it, learn new skills, master what you are working on, be again better then week before. I am about to start after getting my plan ready which I share there: FB, and on my blog.

    Have loads of fun today playing, after all each minute spend playing brings us closer to our goals and unknown... who knows what we are capable to do if we don't try get better every single day.

    Have a great day

    What he said! I wish I had more time to practice my guitar playing but work makes it very difficult. At least I've got to find some time to rehearse and practise for this year's Christmas Cafe performance for parents. Me and my class are learning an Oasis tune, a bit of Keane and a few as yet undecided hristmas songs. I've already taught them the Oasis song and we'll start to get the others sorted this week. Time is flying by and I need to practise. Keep practising Jaro.
