    Guess what? YES! It is piano time. New approach in action. New path to follow. Well, whoever reads those posts don't miss last two from 'Dimace' (check the video as well see why it was suggested what is there). That is a game changer for the way you will play (I guess because right now I am new to that approach - somehow missed that - amateur me) Why game changer already? Well you can't wait to play again! Every day is different! Every time you play will be slightly different! That is what I am experiencing now.

    SO! PLAY TODAY! I start now! My app PM library for warm up (scales plus Hanons) then... who knows where this new focus in music will lead me today? I am excited! Put it into action (last two posts from 'Dimace') and I can promise you: YOU WILL BE EXCITED TO PLAY!

    Oh yes... just 6 days + whenever it will happen on June for you. Happy for you already Jealous a bit that you will have real piano in place. For me this day is coming someday in the future.

    Do not do some carpentry job (sand machine) before you want to play piano! Such a weird feeling in the hands after. I hope after few warm up exercises all will come to normal Anyway you know already what I want to write: PLAY - PRACTICE - HAVE FUN!

    And that is all about to make those fingers of ours itching No way to stop that will to play - as a result - we Play, we Practice, we enjoy the music... and it just started from listening to it a bit.

    Ps. I found this on yt with links to page where you can watch it, is this the concerto you are talking about?

    Daniel is the BEST Beethoven interpreter of our time. Do you have an idea what this means? Stay focused to your work and avoid to be compared with the incomparable. You can make very good things without stressing yourself. There are also some guys and girls from Asia, who are playing sh... and they are making CDs. Look at them and say to your self: If they made it, I will do it also. I'm much better (or I will be, better) than them. Keep going and I'm waiting to listen to you playing the REAL piano, when this is tuned.

    Once I was looking for previous Concerto I found it as well. Amazing what we as people are capable of. I aim a bit lower though, and mostly to enjoy playing and with practice and commitment and developing our/my skills we/I can get a bit closer to all the mastery achieved by some. It is really empowering to listen to those pianists though, grab some inspiration and at the same time focus on our place and move forward bit by bit. So, let's PLAY, PRACTICE and HAVE FUN!

    It is so hard to focus due to temperature outside and unfortunately inside as well. But I hope cold shower will help and piano time will deliver what usually delivers: JOY
    So, let's play again today. Maybe today is a day of breakthrough, maybe today we will have this wow moment... only one way to check it out: ACTION! Play, Practice, have fun. I will like mentioned after cooling my body a bit Have a great practice
