    Beginnings are always hard, over time, if we are consistent with daily routine (whatever we learn) our activities become more and more organised, we gain knowledge on the way and that is why after this beginning period where we struggle a lot of times WE CAN HAVE A LOT OF FUN! So, play, play, play, practice, practice, practice and, if not have it already, you will have something that will cheer you up on daily basis Music is beautiful. For me the key was to follow some program. So, thanks PM for being there for me
    Again! PLAY! HAVE FUN!

    Time to play a bit... for me just an hour... but maybe you have more time and want to learn some new skills. PLAY!

    And again there is stage of new things to master in my app PM. This is period when patience is required. Everything... no almost everything sound rubbish but, knowing that from the past practice process it will at some point sound better. I guess we all have those moments... As usually there is a cure: practice, practice and one more practice. Mine is done for today. Do yours and if you hit like me today (probably for few more days as well since skills are stretching now) do not worry... results will come soon... Sooner then you think and as most of the times will surprise you, which is actually good because we can experience those great moments that keeps us going PLAY, PRACTICE and HAVE FUN!

    Thought about new piano slowly comes to my mind... but first goal has to be achieved... that is why it is time to practice again. So, without thinking too much it is start again to open PM and start learning some new skills and sharpen those in place already... it is still long run to do but most important it is FUN. So, have your fun too today and simply PLAY!

    Missed a day... but today is done already. Had a lot of fun with my PM program though I stuck at new material for some time. I am not worried though because practice and patience works miracles as usually...
    Have fun today, play, practice and have fun! Today!

    Quite busy day, need to split my session into two practices with my PM. First just done, and second in the evening. So, keep playing, keep practising after all though it is kind of discipline to play as often as possible but: discipline is not enemy of the enthusiasm. Practice, play and you will see (if you don't already) how much fun and satisfaction it delivers. Have FUN!

    Luckily there is no wrong time to start playing... I start now my app PM and looking forward to have some fun. Some hard work too, but it all leads to have even more and more pleasure from playing in the future. So, why not put some effort to find those minutes during a day to improve, practice and learn new skills. I, again, start now. You too, if you haven't played yet, do it. Reward comes quickly

    Only action will take us where we want to be... so let's play again today. Me, I open my PM and continue my program. You, whatever you use to support your learning process just do it and HAVE FUN! Let's enjoy some music played by us today

    I had already some fun today playing my piano and testing different sounds from my digital "monster". I used something I work right now on and below I share it with you... I feel a bit patriotic today after playing that piece for several times while recording and later putting video together. Enjoy watching and most of all PLAY, PRACTICE and you will have LOADS OF FUN!

    Congratulations for your effort and your love for the music. I will watch your progress and I hope to see good things from you.

    *take care of the 4th finger of your left hand. It seems to be very weak. Make some exercises for this finger and you will see great benefits.

    I really appreciate your comment. Friend from Berlin - beautiful city by the way. I have been there only once so far but not going anywhere yet so there is still hope to visit again
    Thank you a lot for the advice and pointing my weak point. I will read about it, ask around about it as well. I can only promise to keep working on my music and make my progress keep moving forward.

    However once pointed out, can you tell here on even in private message, if that is better for you, what do you mean by that weak 4th finger on my left hand and maybe suggest some exercises to improve that weakness? I will pay attention to it during my practice sessions.

    Since I mentioned practice session, let's work further on our progress, and as pointed out work on our weaknesses to strengthen them and one by one get rid of them to make our music more listenable right now and nearest future.

    PLAY PRACTICE IMPROVE and HAVE A LOT OF FUN I am starting my session still with my PM (as main source yet) till I finish it. Then... well who knows I guess ca. 6-9 months to reach that point and decision to make HAVE FUN!

    By the Hanon! If you already have it, very well. You will see that are special / dedicated exercises for the 4th finger (right and left hand) Do some of them. Another, every day, practice method: Touch all the keys with your left hand. Don't press them. Let your hand relax for some seconds and then start to hit the key which lies under your 4th finger with moderate speed and power. Make, for example, 4x1/4 tact light, then harder, after 3x1/3 tact harder, then light, then very light, etc. Don't move your hand or your arm. Stay relaxed. Repeat. In one month you will see good progress. If you can afford it (and you don't already have) buy a cheap piano. The cheapest one is much better for practice, than the most expensive keyboard. Grüß aus Berlin.
