    But you may want to enjoy a bit this day the way we like the most, right? I mean PLAYING and HAVING FUN as usually... so PLAY, PRACTICE and ENJOY

    New start today, new goals set and new routine in place. So, early start for me with first practice session just to work on Hanons and scales in the morning. Later during a day much more fun session with learning and practising new pieces of music and putting in action what was trained during first session. I hope it will work well... if not small adjustments will be in place. #

    So, let's PLAY, PRACTICE and HAVE FUN. I start my app PM right away and will have some fun with Hanons and Scales while working on that left hand of mine

    Have a great day!

    Same story like yesterday, week ago, month ago... we need to keep going while enjoying what we do. Music helps a lot. Each day, with practice we get better, we know more, we understand more, we find best way for us to practice to move forward. Without action there is only a dream in our heads, with each step taken on daily basis we move forward to our goals and actually even we are not perfect we are living a dream.

    Keep your dreams alive by taking action! PLAY, PRACTICE and as always ENJOY having loads of FUN!

    I start my PM app and start those warm up exercises to move later forward with new piece to learn Excited already Are you? Who knows what today will bring... let's see

    If you are here, it means that you love to play piano or any other instrument, or you want to play one. WHY WAIT? Let's do it again! Or let's start now! No matter what level of proficiency you are right now... tomorrow you can still discover something new... that is the beauty of music: there are no limits! So, let's fly: PLAY, PRACTICE and ENJOY!

    Hello everybody who reads it. It came to my attention that today is 1 year since I've started this topic. So, let's celebrate as usually with playing a bit of music. No matter where we are now with our skills development. Let's enjoy it today even more then on daily basis. One year just flew by but with daily practice there is great improvement. Maybe it could be better, maybe worse. I am happy where I am now, and looking forward to stay with you for next year here writing those words: PLAY, PRACTICE, ENJOY

    So with no further ado, I start my app PM and continue my practice with question that has no answer: where I will be next year with my piano journey? Daily practice will put me in some place in music world after next year. Where I will be? Where you will be? It is only up to us. More we practice, further we will be, smarter we practice, more skills we will gain. Whatever we will do for next year, let's not forget to enjoy the path we took. It is filled with fun but at the same time there are some moments of struggle. But you already know that after all those struggles will bring great moments when we can ENJOY our music.

    Have a great day! PLAY TODAY AGAIN! Happy one year reading this topic... there is more to come

    Let's leave behind all NOs we might have, all whys we might have that stops us from playing and simply sit in front of our pianos and have some fun again. All those NOs, whys or other excuses will disappear once we start playing. It may not happen first day, second day, but if we are persistent one day, and it doesn't take that long, we will find this what keeps us playing. Playing is rewarding once we put effort to practice (every day). There will be progress we so much want. When you see progress you want to play even more and more. Simple formula: ACTION! PLAY, PRACTICE and you will be rewarded for it.

    So, I am setting my mind into today's practice with my PM app and going work to earn that reward. There is one reward you don't need to work for which just happens by simply taking action: FUN! LOADS OF FUN!

    Have yours! PLAY!

    Thanks Left hand practice? Thanks for that too Made my life miserable... just kidding. I am on it every day. It will take some time.

    So, there is no time to waste actually. Let's play again. Let's improve. Let's work on these imperfections. Let's PRACTICE. LET'S AS USUALLY HAVE FUN!

    You already know what I am going to say: PLAY, PRACTICE, HAVE FUN.

    I am jealous. Jealous because those who can play well must have loads of fun. I still remember when I just started I was struggling to stay with my piano for half an hour: boooooooooring. Hitting those Cs then Ds up to G. No hand movement. One hand at the time. Where is that FUN? Well it comes to you once you progress. That is one of the reasons that keep me going. More you know, more skills you have, longer you can play at one time, and MORE FUN you have. So, I guess those of you who are really good at piano or any other instrument must have loads of FUN playing. So, let's chase that FUN we miss by not playing, or postponing next practice session. It is only up to us, how fast we can enjoy more and more... So let's do another step today:

    PLAY, PRACTICE and FUN will come to you

    I am firing my PM app now, and work on that left hand of mine and much more! Have your MORE! PLAY!

    Same story like every day... For me is to start my PM app and continue with those exercises, repeat some, learn something new. For you it is for sure something different regarding what you play right now. But one thing we have in common: we will HAVE FUN while PLAYING and PRACTISING

    So, let's: PLAY, PRACTICE and HAVE FUN!... another step forward
