Looking forward to next week of practice with thought in my mind that finally I did something right.
    Forget the programs and PLAY the piano. If the programs were so good, all the teachers were without students. Play with the metronome, listen from the video you have the sonatina and try to involve. SUPER.

    What a weather. All grey and in dark colours. It is time to lighten a day though a bit with some practice. Let the fact of playing bring the sun into the room. Let's practice my friends. Let's have some good time. Let's move a bit further. Let's enjoy the music. After all it has only chance to improve when we... again... PLAY, PRACTICE and of course ENJOY

    I am after my first round with piano today. You too play, play, play, practice those pieces of music of your choice and enjoy the moments we can spend with this wonderful instrument... or if there is another instrument of your choice: HAVE FUN as well.
    Me struggling with stiff fingers, some days are like that... but closer to the end of the session, stiffness disappeared almost completely... looking forward for evening session. So as usual, let's find time to play, practice and enjoy Have a great day!

    And again, over and over again. Time to play. You too find some time and have your session done. Every time we play we get better or we may find the way to do it better. I think there is no waste time spent playing. Sooner or later we will open new doors, new understanding and most of all we will have great time So, do not wait too long today, do what needs to be done and have your piano time. PLAY, PRACTICE and ENJOY

    Friday is quite busy for me, not that busy though to spend some time with my piano, of course using it Find your time to play as well. After all it is something we like to do, right? Something we want to become quite good, right? Something that brings joy into our lives, right? There are many rights, right ? One is obvious, that without practice, enjoying it, and moving every day even the smallest step forward we will never reach or get closer to our goal. It might be different and surely is for all of us... but for sure without PLAYING, PRACTISING and at the same time HAVING FUN we won't move forward. So, let's move and PLAY, PRACTICE, ENJOY again to enjoy it even more tomorrow And as usually I will be here to remind you that and myself as well PLAY!!!

    Don't forget to make videos. You are without teacher and only with them, first of all you, can evaluate your progress and correct your mistakes. Tell me how your are doing with your next Sonatina, in the case you have already started with a new one. Cheers!

    I started memorising Sonatina Op 36 no 1 - Andante and was trying to work on some difficulties I had with Spiritoso and worked a bit on playing more efficiently difference between piano and forte. Somehow after recording it sounded same to me. I truly need real piano ASAP. I will record my progress with first part in next up to three days. Once I have more on Andante I will immediately share it here as well. Thanks for pushing me a bit... I know I could spend more time on piano already but I am working as well on something to actually win that time (money source), and it takes loads of my time at this stage, but I am closer and closer there. I still remember your suggestion 5h + 3h practice. I am really aiming there, or quite close to that numbers but it will take time - but I am sure I will make it happen. It is MUST to me anyway Thank you again for your support.

    And now, of course it is time to practice a bit. So, whoever reads those words, join me and practice your skills as well. Let's PLAY, PRACTICE and ENJOY

    You are positive and cute as always, Jaro.

    Speaking of "practice," the jazz guitarist Pat Martino said he views his instrument, the guitar, as a "toy" that he likes to "play with." That seems like a good way to "practice" to me. If you call it "practice," it sounds like a lot of work.

    I liken it to doing crossword puzzles. It's work, but it's fun!

    Great point. Thanks. Will steal the idea So, let's call it toy from now on I have to change a bit that repeated statement: PLAY, PRACTICE and ENJOY into something else.

    It will come to me how to put it better.

    I hope today I will find time to record some video with possible improvement ('Dimace') if not, then Saturday.

    So, to keep us going, let's PLAY with our "TOYS" and have loads of FUN and progress
