    Why not to play again today? Our instruments are just waiting there for us to play them. Let's find some time and play some pieces we can, let's improve those skills we want to have while playing, let's have some fun. Between all habits we have, good or bad why not have one that will give us a lot of pleasure and satisfaction... playing music, being able to play music, spend that time just to enjoy the fact we can. Create a habit to play every day. It works great for me... who knows how will it serve you. Try it Fun is coming... play and you will see! Have a great day.

    Sadly, I have today trip day - loads of driving... and sadly because no time for piano or piano. I hope I will get back early enough tomorrow to play a little. But YOU... you may have time to play, so do it. Take advantage of time you have and play and have fun. It is fun, isn't it?

    Trip can be exhausting, especially long trip... that is why today for me just an hour of practice. On the other hand just after writing my first sentence I had this thought that whatever we do and we like can be exhausting too, like driving. But we still do it. We may not want to get into car (play our instrument) today, but we need to get to work, shop, friends etc. (we need practice our skills), so we do it (we must do it ). So, let's play, even we are tired, after all it gives us a lot of fun, right? So, lets's have some now! Take care.

    Isn't it great when you find some time and actually play some music? No matter how advance we are, I think it always gives us a lot of fun. When we repeat daily this action at one point, no matter what we do actually, we will find ourselves doing something with pretty good level. Then it is only up to us when we want to stop... but why to stop? So, I hope you played today already, my location it is late evening already, but if you are in different time zone and have some day left... PLAY, PRACTICE, HAVE FUN. I got mine today, and looking forward for tomorrow Have a great rest of day, evening or night

    My piano time done for today, and as usually it delivered loads of joy, though my fingers today were COLD... somehow stayed that way all the time. Anyway, I already enjoyed some music played by me, did you? Do not wait too long... this day will end at some point and you don't want to miss that time of fun and joy! Play a bit... and be again one step forward on whatever you work right now Have FUN!

    Nothing changed since yesterday... to go further we need to practice, right? So, let's. I am in the middle of my practice, and now take short brake just to continue. Luckily, not like yesterday, my fingers are warmed up properly... so it is time to master those exercises from my app(PM). Do not wait, warm up and have fun with your instrument It is so worth to play... I always consider that time well spent. Do you? Practice, learn, have fun!

    Early start today to finish this video you can see below. This is my progress recorded. Few words about it here: my blog post.
    It may not sound or look that there is a lot of improvement but I am proud of what I am doing, on my own, and sometimes you can't hear or see what you feel inside... that is progress too. Better understanding, knowing what to correct, knowing where to go or on what to work harder. Daily practice will give you that. Sometimes faster sometimes a bit slower but you will get there. Just PLAY, HAVE FUN, PRACTICE - amazing moments will come! Moments you can't buy or plan. Those just surprise you. Be surprised! PLAY!
    All right the video with another piece from my program I follow (PM):

    And now it is time for fun! Practice and hard work too with piano... but mostly fun! After all that is why we play, learn... because it is fun for us, right? So, let's play! And begin those minutes, hours of fun just for us for as long as we can! Once we get better and better in playing there will be even more joy for us to take from that time. So! Be patient, and play! I am starting RIGHT NOW!

    This is me calling for everybody do practice today! We want to be great, right? So, let's practice, even though time is running so fast, especially last days when literally everybody is so busy and in rush due to Christmas coming. Why not stop or slow down for an hour or maybe a bit more and PLAY, HAVE FUN and IMPROVE a bit! Have fun today with your music. I am in the middle of it Take care.

    Another practice, another challenges. We all are playing the same game. To go further with our skills there is no other way but practice. Sometimes skill improvement comes slower, sometimes faster. If slower... let's not cry about it and slowly, with the slowest tempo we can do it right we will with repetition improve. That is what will happen. That is what we aim for and one day even pieces of music that look difficult and almost impossible to learn will be in our range! Isn't that great! So, let's focus and practice those skills that will lead us there, one by one... and one day! You will surprise yourself how far you got! Play, practice, have fun!

    Moment of truth... do not waste your time! Somehow I feel I need to say it to you. Do not waste your time. If your choice is to play any instrument, do it. Don't spend to much time thinking how bad you are, keep practising and you will get better. Over time, over hours of practice, slower or faster but you will get better. This may be not what you want to hear but if piano or any instrument is not your thing, if this is just a whim or fancy thing you think you want to do... do not waste your time. Find thing that inspires you, that keeps you awake, that occupies your mind through hole day, week, month, every moment. It may not be music... I hope it does, but may be it is not your thing. Once you have it you will know it... then practice! Whatever it is. If however it is music do not waste your time searching to long for perfect tool, course, teacher etc to start. Start where you are, with what you have, keep your eyes open and with practice and actually practising on daily basis you will build up more confidence, you will find what works for you the best, what doesn't work for you and then when you are actually on the arena you will be able to make better choice for yourself. You will be able to change what you were doing into something better... better course, better source of knowledge, better teacher, more time... The real progress comes from doing, comes from being active, gives you joy, gives you will to do better, will lead you to place where you want to be with the thing you chose to do. Do not waste your time and do it. So, if this really is music for you, practice, practice hard, keep enjoying it through frustration that occur while practising those difficult exercises that will bring new skill for you to use once you advance. Keep doing it! Joy is there! Pride is there! Satisfaction is there. Motivation is there! So many things are there but you need to do it! Daily! So, even though we have Christmas time, do not stop, find minutes to keep doing what you love and be better so when we meet here in one year time, on next Christmas Eve you will proudly say to yourself: look what I have done! One year and I did so much! I am better so much! I had so much joy! I am proud of myself and will keep going! So, play, practice, have fun! Take care.

    ... and again everything comes back to normal... time to practice, time to think about what's next, maybe setting some goals for next year, month, week... we all do that in this time of year, right? Let's not forget though to practice today a bit. I will not, since I am not even near to my piano but maybe you are. Play, practice, have fun... I will in a different way... like I mentioned with some goals setting regarding my piano journey for days to come. Let's have a bit of joy!
