Don't be ashamed! When I have a horrible day, I'll pull 'em up on Netflix and laugh until I cry. It's so stupid it's brilliant. I think they've helped me stay sane on more that one occasion, so you should view 'em as a really ridiculous national treasure. grin

I am jealous of you and your Beethoven sonata!

I rather like being on a "pure" list. I feel like I should have a little halo or something....

Made it to the public library's music center for a short practice session. So I'm still "pure," at least until next week!

I'm very grateful that the library makes pianos and practice rooms available to anyone who stops by to practice.

Judging by the very-well-loved condition of the piano I was assigned, my gratitude is shared by many. I am grateful, though!

I am just back after four days at a running event as a volunteer. I took my piano with me and got some practice time in the motel we were in three of the days. The fourth day however required me to work most of the day and then walk the course through the night collecting marking tape and directional arrows. So I was unable to play that day, but rest assured I am going to spend more time at the piano this week to make up for my falling off the wagon.


Problems with piano are 90% psychological, the other 10% is in your head.

Still on track! I need to learn to take breaks... I went three hours without one today and that can't be good.

At risk of losing my 2013 "purity" today... out of town on business again, and no time to hit the library practice rooms. Slight chance I can make a run at a piano in a nearby hotel after dinner, but I think the jig may be up...

Thanks, AimeeO -- you inspired me to preserve my purity!

I snuck into the Allerton Hotel after dinner, where they have a clapped-out old Young Chang upright, and I spent a hard twenty minutes working through my memorized review pieces.

An ideal practice session it wasn't, but it was SOME practice.

Casini, I'm still on track for 2013.

It's definitely hard to count playing on a piano in the wild as a "practice" session in the traditional sense, but what you -are- practicing is performing in front of folks. That's important.

And let's not forget, MOYD isn't just about practice - it is any sort of playing, be it practice, performance, noodling... anything goes, just play the piano!

Thank you, Casini. I was trying to honor the intent of MOYD, not solicit critiques of my practicing habits. I might do that elsewhere on the ABF, but not in this thread.

I might, but I won't, because I think I already know the difference between practice and "playing on a piano in the wild."

smile I didn't think you were looking for critiques or support- I just commented after Whizbang wrote in case any newcomers to MOYD got to thinking that it is essential for MOYD to PRACTICE as opposed to just play. Sorry if it came across the wrong way!

I need to put my name down for the excused list I have not practiced for five whole days, my piano looks so lonely the falboard is dusty. I caught a bad cold and no practicing from May 22nd to the 26th. I am determined that I will atleast play some scales tonight thought, this streak simply can not go on.

Can I join as a late start? I've played most days this year (even if it was just twinkle at the piano with a violin kid) but I can't say that I've played every day thus far. But I'm determined to do it for 2013! I completed MOYD in 2009 but don't know how to add a badge.

Hi Carolyn,

When I took over MOYD in 2010 Marybee made the badges and while we decided on making one for 2009 and 10 together - We didn't make badge just for 2009.

However, in this thread:

MOYD

you can get the base MOYD keyboard and add on the 2009.

Or you could go to the 2010 MOYD thread and copy one of the images that they used.

Just right clink the sig pic you want to use, go to properties and copy the url. Then paste it in your signature area under "my stuff" at the top of the page.

OK, I need to go on the naughty list big time.

My own piano is unplayable right now. Don't ask.

It's been that way since Wednesday, May 29. I played at my piano lesson that day, and again today when I had my exam.

Unlike the last time I had no piano of my own to play on, this time I did not find alternatives. No pretending to be buying a piano so as to be able to noodle on a store model for an hour. No playing at the pub. Just ... no playing at all.

Which was kind of a stupid move, the week before my exam. But oh, well. No excuse.

I'm hoping my piano problems will get solved tomorrow, when the tech is coming. So back on the wagon as of today (fingers crossed).


Plodding through piano music at a frustratingly slow pace since 9/2012.

Standard disclaimer: I teach many things. Piano is not one of them.

Hi Sara, I'll put you on the back on the wagon right away.

I'm glad that your piano problems will be solved tomorrow!
I am sure you were not at all happy about the situation.


Enjoy playing your heart out tomorrow my dear!
