This thread is devoted to helping us keep track of members who are participating in MOYD ("Master Of Your Domain"). MOYD players, if you forget to practice, confess your sins here (or start a new thread to discuss your woes) and we'll move you to the bottom of the MOYD list so you can start working your way up.

If you're new around these parts, you may have no idea what MOYD is. If that's you, read this:
Explanation of MOYD

Feel free to join MOYD anytime by saying so on this thread. We'd love to have you!

Hi Cindysphinx,

I posted on the original thread to join but did not update the list. I see that somewhere in that thread this sort of became the norm.

I'm assuming that you 'own' the list being the ringleader. Can I play too?


thanks

jo

Could you put me at the bottom? I fell out Jan 3 but am restarting today. I just had my piano lesson this morning and my piano teacher agreed that my fingers were numb and uncooperative (since the only exercise they've gotten this week was twiddling with the TV remote!). So back to the bottom I go!

I'm in. I'm new to the board. I bought myself an old Kimball upright for Christmas '04 and started taking lessons. I've been at it a year now, and am actually starting to see some progress. Hopefully this will be the incentive I need to sit down to it on the weekends. =)

Hi all, I am new too. I am a returning adult player. My mom started me at the age of 4 (!) and I played up until probably 8th grade, then very little to nothing, occasionally on an electric keyboard, since then. I am now 42, and my 3 yr old son told my husband to get me for Christmas! So hubby got me a very old, but nicely restored Bennett-Bretz baby grand. And here I am, doing my Hanons and playing as much as I can. I think I have missed only 2 days since the piano was delivered on 12/23/05. So count me in on the MOYD! Great to meet all of you in cyberspace!

You can also use this online practice tracker. Its a sticky thread at the top of this forum.

You might have to PM Markjpcs to get it work after you register and all. He fixed me up right away.

Want to quickly say "Welcome" to some of the new "faces" I've seen in this thread: dfvanden, Naught (Hey! Welcome to WTF, too, BTW!), KAM and debrina. I haven't checked in at PW much, so I must have missed your intros.

Cindy--Would you mind editing your first post w/ the list and changing my "re-start" date to Jan. 4? I am pretty sure that is when I actually fell off the wagon.

Thanks!

Sorry, I never actually wrote an intro of any kind, so in summary, I'm a 38 year old who hadn't played since I was 14 (I got to the start of grade 3 back then). I bought an 1917 upright for $900 on Ebay in November last year and I have missed only 1 day since then. I like the music of Nyman, Glass and Einaudi, but have come to enjoy more traditional things like Beethoven/Schubert (to listen to mainly). I'm working my way through a 1960's Grade 2 book now, and buying books on Ebay like "Sonatinas for Young Pianists" as goals for later this year. It has been harder than I thought to get back into it. Most nights with dinner I drink a wine or beer or two, and I've found that doesn't help with the practise at all.

I get most of my books on ebay too. I got a ton of Liszt in one lot, from the Old Country, all the titles are in German.


Slow down and do it right.

Well, so far so good. I've gone 3 straight days practicing at least SOMETHING. That's a big improvement. Even if I only practice for 10 minutes one day, I think consistencey is the key. wink If you can get in the habit of at least doing SOMETHING on the piano everyday, then I think the easier it will get to practice longer. I practiced for an hour last night, so I'm proud. smile

I think I will try to practice again at least 30 minutes tonight after work before watching The O.C. laugh

This is certainly getting me into good practicing habits. I am making sure I get to the piano and practice even on the busy days where I don't feel like I really have the time. Other days I'm spending hours on it! It's a great idea!

May I join too? I'm new to the forum, but I have been practicing every day, and this will help keep me motivated when we travel. I agree that we should still practice if we can get to a piano, because practicing on a different piano is good experience in itself.

I'd like to sign up. Been master of my domain since Saturday (Feb. 11). Fell out on Friday (Feb. 10) after about 3 weeks of daily practice. I had a lot going on that day, but somehow fit about 20 minutes of playstation into the mix. whome In my defense, I've noticed (or at least imagined) some weird parallels between trying to play smoothly through a new piece and trying to master a new race track on Gran Turismo 4.

Hey!! Put my name in, I'm in. If a person happens to be out of town occasionally, I hope this doesn't count but even then if I see a piano around I feel the need to play something. It just feels good.

Me too; I am so bummed I'd been going strong with a travel exemption being my only time away during last summer and yesterday I ended up being so busy preparing for some guests that came over that I didn't even make it to the piano to play a single piece frown

Count me back in as starting today the 22nd

Count me in....need the push.

BTW: This seems like quite a bit of work for you, Cindy. Very admirable that you take on this task.

Also - does it matter if you're on the chicks or the dudes or neutral? I put myself on the chicks list (for obvious reasons). Then it's all tallied at the end, right?

It should be cool.

can I join? Does organ count? I take both piano and organ lessons. i am a professional flutist and am involved in lots of things so I can't/don't practice piano every day, but I practice at least one of organ and piano every day (more piano because I have limited access to the church organ though after practicing organ for 3-4 hours I physically can't practice piano

Ok, a questoin. How strict are the practice every day rules? I will practice a bit tonight but i was singing all morning in church choir and had a huge choral concert (very tiring) wher ewe sang major classical works and I played a flute solo that lasted two hours. If you have non-piano concerts, could that be considered good enough reason?

Hi
I was a piano teacher for 10 years. I then took a wrong turn (Lol) and became a nurse. That means I quit practicing 39 years ago. I am now 69 and a retired guy in my town was looking for somebody to do piano 4 hands and 2 pianos, I couldn't resist the call.I bought a Clavinova 10 days ago, started logging my practices and it works so could you please add me to the list, I'll try to keep it up....

I hold my hands up and confess that I didnt hit the bench yesterday. I'm so annoyed!

I was just doing other things and before I knew it, it was 7am and the start of a new day.

Oh well.....

I have a question - on sunday I had to leave early for church and I only got back home after my child was asleep (at 8 pm) - so, I couldn't play (even though I wanted to really bad ;(). We had a family gathering after church and I didn't know it would take that long. So - am I in or not? If not then just put me to the end of the list but if I'm in then -- that's really awesome!! smile

Margareth, that's a close one, but what the heck.

Hearing no objection, I move that Margareth be given a pass. All in favor?

Count me in please. This should be quite interesting.

I've done vocal practice every day since starting five years ago, not one missed day even when I've had the odd cold (I can at least do some gentle therapy exercises).

Piano, however has so far proven to be far more difficult to practice steadily for any length of time. I have managed to get to the point where I am practicing about 45 minutes per day and I haven't missed a day in two weeks! (although I do find that somedays I'm not concentrating as well as other days. . . .mmmmm. . . shiny . . . )

I think that it's better if you put me to the end of the list because I read the rules and cosidering that I wasn't traveling or sick it means I'm out. But I've been back in since then!

I fell of again. I already start to think that MOYD is not for me - I am very very motivated to play but I have a little kid and I was also working today - so as bad as I wanted to play I still couldn't. But I'm happy that things with piano are generally going well for me :0)
So you can put me to the end again wink

I was doing soooooo well, hadn't missed a day of piano since the first of the year....until... Tuesday, July 11th. But got back on July 12th. Summertime is a lot harder to stay indoors!

Oooops! I lied! Just read past posts and saw that I did miss Easter Sunday. So, I've fallen for the second time, not the first!

Hey, MOYDers,

I'm going away for a few days. If I don't add you or edit your entry for a while, don't sweat it. I'll catch up when I get back.

Keep up the good practicing!

Sad to say, I just don't touch the piano every day anymore. Might as well take me off the list for good. This doesn't mean I won't try just as hard to play daily!

I fell off the MOYD wagon... I know that maybe I have a good excuse due to illness but I have had days when I could have played the piano but didn't. frown f

I will now try to get back to practicing every day because I don't like being down on the bottom of the MOYD list!

It's right there in the rules. So put down the Kleenex and get back on the bench already!

I hope I'm not on the list anymore. frown Sorry to say that I simply don't deserve it. I've just missed too many days. Way, way too much going on. Anyway, I may try MOYD again next year...in the meantime, I'll still keep trying to practice as much as I can! smile

I'm in, although feeling guilty about it. Would the "away from home" exemption apply for this - Every third to fouth night for most of the year I'm stuck in the hospital on call with no piano for 24-30 hours straight. So, an average of one day a week I don't/can't practice. So my "perfect" would never the the 365 most of you do. Can I still participate, or is that too big of an exemption?

I say if you are away from home curled up in one of those teensy hospital on-call rooms, you deserve all the exemptions you can get!

Seriously, if you're without a piano for any reason, that's a legit exemption, IMHO.

Say, uh.

Do all the medical personnel use those on-call rooms to have sex like they do on Gray's Anatomy?

No?

OK, that's good to know. smile

Unfortunately I rarely even get to curl up on my teensy bed in my teensy on-call room. Busy place.

And, at least in my limited experience, we don't have many Dr. McDreamy types wink More like scrubs than er or Gray's Anatomy.
