I haven't had a lot of AB forum time of late. I've been practicing, but I'm only just getting around to reporting on my mishaps. I did have some excused travel in January and March, but that doesn't matter as I fell off the wagon here and there in the last three months. Could you put me in as back on the wagon as of April 8?

Thanks!

I'm still here, still practicing, & haven't missed a day. Though yesterday was almost a miss - after house cleaning all day, I only managed about 15 minutes at the piano while dinner was cooking.

Carol, that's great and really, 15 minutes still counts!!! It is the consistency we're after, making sure we play every day.

Good for you!

Back from an out-of-town visit with my husband's family -- I missed practicing April 6-8. It's good to be back.

Okay, I am in! I would like to sign up.

I am nearly 50 years old and never played before. My (9 year old) daughter takes lessons and my son took them and will be going back in September. We have a digital piano and just purchased a Yamaha C2 because my daughter's teacher said it was time for her to start playing on an acoustic piano. (It arrives on Friday.) I decided that if I am spending that much money on a piano, I am going to learn too. (My wife said she will also learn to play.) Got a couple of Alfred's Adult self-teaching books and have been practicing on the digital for two weeks now. This is actually fun!

So, fifteen minutes a day (minimum) is something I think I can do. Of course, that expensive piano will rarely be used by me since the only time I have to practice is late at night. But at least the digital will be mostly mine now.

So, please sign me up and hopefully this will be continuing motivation to stick with this beyond the depleted bank account.

Hello,

I would like to sign up. I have been back to the piano for about a year now, after taking lessons as a little kid. Now that I just had my first lesson with my new teacher and I figure this will be a good way to remind myself to practice my assigned pieces.

Welcome IreneAdler - how exciting to be starting fresh! I remember how "high" I was after my first lesson too.

My two sister-in-laws are coming to visit from the US. I will be traveling to Germany and France with them for the next five days, then I will be home for a few days (I will practice a little those days), and then it is off on the Bernina Express to Italy for two days. So, I will have some excused non-practice days in the next two weeks. Unless I can find a lonely piano along the way...

Why don't you let me know when you get home what your exact dates are - or if you want me to just block out the whole 2 week period. For some people it is important to see the specific days. smile

Have a great time. Where in Italy are you going to be visiting? I might have some tips for you! (send me a PM if you like).

I need to go on the back on the wagon list please. Work got a little out of hand and then I had minor surgery! So I fell off and got back on quite a few times! LOL (I don't care at all about the dates btw.)

Glad to have time to be back! smile

Have to confess I missed last Friday. No excuse--just forgot.

I'm getting ready for my piano lesson group spring recital soon.
I've been practicing Bridge Over Troubled Water every day--well, ALMOST every day!
I'm finding there comes a time when I actually feel confident that I "know" the piece.
Now it's just a matter of getting up to speed.

Ok, I've taken note and marked you off for the week - if you do play, let me know and I'll "unmark" the days smile

Have a safe trip!

I am back from vacation with my visitors, and back to the piano. I missed April 18-21, and April 27. I did manage to find a lonely piano at one hotel, and played through one piece when no one was looking. It was a fun vacation, but I am happy to be back to my piano.

I am sooo excited! I was able to buy a gorgeous used 1979 C3 Yamaha Grand, in great condition! Talk about a motivation to play everyday, and great upgrade from a keyboard. Although I might be missing some days in July for vacation…we shall see. Still, my first acoustic piano in 10 years!


change is not a sudden happening, it takes time; allow yourself the time that it takes, but take that time to make every effort…

I was just thinking of you over the weekend, noticing you've been a bit quiet on the forum. Glad you're still around and still playing everyday!

Alas, Cheryl, I've got to ask you to ding me for Saturday and Sunday, May 5 and 6. Mrs.F and I were aboard a little cruise to the Bahamas and I couldn't find a way to practice. Listened to lots of great piano work by a talented jazz soloist who treated me to all my favorite old standards. Unfortunately, his piano had a big "do not touch" sign on it so I refrained from the "sneak in at 5am" routine that I had in Vegas last year.

Oh, well. I was back on the bench a few hours after we returned to port this morning.
