As you can see, I post my videos in what I was practising for some time, and with the help of 'Dimace' (HUGE HELP) I get some feedback. As well my sense of music and what I actually can hear changes with the practice. Two years ago I wasn't even able notice some nuances of music which I can hear now. I guess with practice my ears develop as well And the second question, well, I am not aiming to pass any exams. I play because I love it. It brings me joy. Where it will lead me? I have no idea. I am simply enjoying the journey. I want to play as good as I can using resources which are in my reach (it changes over time). You see we have all different reasons why we play, mine as mentioned is simple: because I can, because I love it, because brings me joy
    All right, back to work, soon is PIANO time for me

    How about you? Why you learn? What is your inspiration?

    I like that Same as I like idea to play today again, though the weather (awful) makes you think: relax, look outside, it is rainy, almost dark, no chance to see the sun today! Stay in bed. Well, we always have a choice and luckily there is something to rise the energy sleeping inside. We all have it I believe. So? Let's throw some wood into that fire inside and get ready and at some point during days like this: PLAY, LEARN, PRACTICE: after all it always brings some good, some FUN, and loads of JOY

    So much on my plate today I can imagine you sometimes as well struggle to find time to practice when days, like mine today, arrive. But no matter what, let's make a promise: to finish at least this day with an hour of PRACTICE, LEARNING, PLAYING: nothing better to end a day with some FUN PLAY!

    Oh, I "love" those days when for no reason you feel somehow like a ticking bomb. Looking forward to my piano time, it is not only pleasure but as well can calm you down, so if you feel a bit like me today: PLAY, LEARN, PRACTICE: JOY will come

It feels great! So, Let's: PLAY, PRACTICE, LEARN and real JOY will surprise you

    frustrations

    My Kawai grand sounds very good and even inspirational most days, but when the weather is bad it sounds quite bad! The problem is I can't touch it up when the weather is bad, because when the weather returns to normal it will sound bad..

    Such a shame... I know a bit about frustration too. My piano, still digital, is as well not the best. But for now must be enough. I experience different problems. There are days when some keys simply don't want to give sounds or give such resistance that you need to push them so hard to get the sound... ufff... like you said frustrations. Join the quest when the weather improves It is nice thought, to me, that there are more enthusiasts practising and have joy from playing
