    Yes, and no. Before you reach that 10,000 hours you may play or do anything with great result, or enough to ENJOY what you are doing. Once you enjoy it, you keep doing it and whether it is true or not (those 10,000 hours) you sooner or later will have those hours in your fingers... an at the same time ENJOYING, PLAYING, LEARNIG SO, let's do that: PLAY!

    It is great feeling to look back and see those once we achieve something. But to see them we need to get there and to get there we need to... well, you already know what I am going to write: PLAY, LEARN and while doing it have FUN So, PLAY!

    To impress ladies Just kidding. No, I always loved the idea for me to play piano, but always was something else. Once I was doing work helping some to find their true love of doing something, I found that I am actually not following my heart. So I did. And it is a great journey. Demanding path as you call: sometimes but JOY of doing that is a reward. Being slowly better is a reward. Time spent playing is a reward and much more. So, let's PLAY! LEARN! and as always HAVE SOME FUN!

    Do you remember a tickle which started your interest in such an 'arcane' activity?

    I remember a very easy transcription of Liebestraume which started the whole thing for me. At least, that's the way i remember it.

    No, I don't remember, but I know what will happen next, focusing on what needs to be done

    So, let's do it again: PLAY, LEARN and as always HAVE FUN!

    Finally I found the right balance during Hanon exercises. That was the moment that tiredness was appearing. That is great advice! Thanks, and now back to it

    Let's PLAY! Fun is there!

    Fridays are days for me when I can have only a taste of piano time yet, but maybe you can have a feast: PLAY, LEARN and as always take your piece of FUN from it

    I hoped I was going to have a scale feast from this video, but I couldn't find the section he plays. Very challenging. Such fluidity! About 2 minutes in;

    Remember, this is a light-hearted musical essay, for this TV episode.
