    Let's work a bit on our skills today. Let's enjoy our progress. Years must past to play as we want... It shouldn't stop us to enjoy what we can do today: PLAY, PRACTICE have FUN!

I said pianos, because couldn't be in my location and struggled a lot to have my hands on the keys. Luckily, had a chance to play two pianos and one grand piano (only once) and practice what I just uploaded. It wasn't perfect time to practice, but still if you really want something you can find ways of doing it. Unfortunately, after coming back to my old friend - my piano - I've noticed how bad it sounds, how bad are keys and had three days of horror to use it again. It is a necessity now to organise better piano for myself. One day it will happen.
    Anyway, below is the piece of music by Ludovico Einaudi "I Giorni" I was trying to put together as best as I could with help of online teacher this time. I am trying new approaches and I am almost off PM app that lead me to this stage.
    I hope you will (whoever will watch/listen to it) enjoy. With fingers crossed (not when playing) I am looking forward for more. Comments more then welcome.


    Ps. I am back and hungry for MORE! As always: PLAY and ENJOY!
    Welcome back, my friend. The piece is OK (the performance) but your piano is a worthless piece of no sense. Please, throw it away! It is same to play on an instrument like this. Think of your efforts, your time, and, your future, and buy something decent. (not good. DECENT) I see progress (the piece sounds quite well) and I hope the next one to be played with a REAL piano. BRAVO.

    >> Don't forget the character of the piece. At the end sounds like something classical or pre-classical and this is a mistake. This is lounge (and modern as a composition) music. Most of the piece sounds like this, but with some parts we have issues. Try to hold everything together, like a long breath, well tenuto, suonando, a unity which represents maybe a nice dream or something else, always beautiful, calm and quiet. Draw an image into your mind and follow it.

    Hello, thank you for still being here for me. Yes, I am more aware of drawing an image in my mind. Finally somehow it sinks into my body, hard to explain but it is something that I can't explain, and I understand how hard it can be to explain. But those changes I start to feel... I am pretty sure that it was much easier to follow that image when I was playing on the real piano or, though for just one hour, on grand piano. The keys... I had literally tears in my eyes, those keys responded completely different, the touch you give to them, strength... it is almost a necessity to follow the picture, and the sound that stays in the air, though you stopped playing those keys, and went forward with piece of music, somehow, I don't know... just hanging there, though not there any more. Those moments were precious. I am so glad I started this journey, well, more then three years ago. And big YES, my piano MUST be changed. As soon as I will have that possibility I will do it. Unfortunately it still have to be digital, for next year or two. Living situation force that decision. But, hell, I am on changing that. Those changes don't come easily, but with a bit of effort I am sure I will do it.
    In this piece I know, there are some mistakes, things to correct... I am sure with practice will come improvement. Soon, another piece I am working on. As a little bit of breath, though challenging anyway. Well known, played quite often by countless amount of people... but as always brings joy and feeling to move one step, even small, forward.
    Thank you again!

    It is amazing, that sometimes those fingers stay cold and resist to warm up. Short brake for me, and will be back with my practice. How about you? Are you enjoying your practice already? PLAY it is FUN, though under this FUN-word there are countless feelings you will experience! PLAY!
