    Can you relate: this sad moment, when your hands are so warm, fingers wanting to play more and you actually HAVE TO finish. Sad moments... But... there is another day, right? It is quite late in my location, but on the West thousand miles away from me, there is still time to play. PLAY! ENJOY!

    I have to tune my piano again. 6ft Kawai
    I dread it. It's a dream to tune, but I have to take everything off of it (including an iMac). So much magically accumulates, because it's a convenient and accessible surface. And then I have to put everything back, choose among this and that..

    That sounds like quite the job! Are you doing it on your own? Personally, I know nothing about tuning. Good luck with it. I hope it will go smoothly and fast... and since I am here, let's say those words again: if you can, and everything is in order with your instrument: PLAY! ENJOY!

    Sorry to hear that. I understand you quite well. Those obstacles are sometimes frustrating. At least, if we can't play for some reason, we can at least enjoy music played by others. Not mine YET I hope, though, that all nightmares will disappear one day and you will enjoy your piano time. Saying that I am about to start overcoming my obstacles and play anyway
    Whoever can join me today: PLAY!

    Thank you 'Dimace' to bring to my attention some time ago the lady: Valentina Lisitsa. Watching her playing, listening to what she produces with her hands is quite an experience.
    Right now though, it is time to come back on planet earth and PLAY with the skills we have and improve a bit again. PLAY. ENJOY!

    At the beginning of her carrier I travelled to London to listen live a concert she gave there. She is very airy performer. This distance with the instrument is a must. Except from the technic it reveals also respect for it (for the instrument & the music). The piano isn't a drill or a shovel which require power or force to work properly. As I told you it looks like more to a beautiful woman. We MUST touch her but with elegance (sic) feelings etc. and generally speaking with the way could make her happy. Listen to Horowitz, an absolute legend of our instrument. Many say that some of his notes are somehow hollow or lack depth. But the magic he produces with his airy touch is second to no one. Try (the time has come) to stroke softly the keys when you play songs or classical pieces. (when you practicing you must be much more decisive and firm.) Avoid to hit the keys even something like FF is written on the score. (you don't have big problem here. Your problem is that almost every time you are playing the piece sounds without any exceptions something like a lukewarm MF. This MUST be stopped, by looking DOWN your dynamic and NOT up. We prefer (for the time being) 100% to listen a good P or PP than a mediocre / bad F or FF. The reason is that with your technic (which isn't to the moment great) you will have immediately better results (you can at least calm your listeners instead provoking to them inconvenience with your ''heavy'', out of control sound.) It is certain that you can play decent or good piano. Everybody can make this. (with practice and discipline) Give to the piano your favorite woman's name (Elvira, Christa, Anja, etc) and after do what you MUST do with HER (the piano is now a woman) to be happy or, at least, satisfied. Keep going!
