Oh frabjous day! Calloo callay! Sign up time has arrived!

It's time to take the plunge and commit to MOYD (Master of Your Domain) 2014. Join in - play or practice (yes, there is a difference for some of us!) every day - and see how much it helps improve your piano skills!

MOYD is a personal challenge where you commit to playing the piano for some amount of time every single day. It might be a few hours, it might be a few minutes - it doesn't matter - as long as you sit down and touch those keys!!!

It doesn't matter if it is a grand an upright, or a digital. Nor does it matter if it is your piano, or that of your neighbour, your teacher, your best friend, your second-cousin-three-times removed, the hotel piano, the cruise ship piano, the piano in your local bar or coffee shop. Any piano, any where, for any amount of time will do the job.

If you miss a day you must come here and say so.

Please report AFTER the fact. We only need to know when you DID miss playing - not that you "might not be able to play".

2014 will be the 10th year of MOYD on ABF.


1. Participating in MOYD requires you to sit on the piano bench and play something at least once daily. That's it. There is no minimum amount of time required. Five minutes counts... but more is better. Simply get to the piano every day, let it become a habit, and see what good things happen to your piano skills.

2. If you are away from home (for business, or for personal reasons) , you don't have to practice/play. You go to the 'Excused list".

3. If you are sick, you don't have to practice/play. You go to the 'Excused list".

4. If you are at home, and you are not sick and you miss a day, you have to come here and tell us the sad story of what kept you from playing. Then you go to the "Back on the Wagon list".

5. You may start late - however no new participants are accepted after September 30th.

6. Everyone who has reported being away, being sick, falling off and getting back on the wagon, or who signs up late has the right to put the MOYD 2014 badge in their signatures on 31 December 2014.


Simply reply to this thread declaring your enthusiastic willingness to join in and be committed to the plan!

I will check in regularly and update this first page with the information you provide. I will not necessarily reply to all the posts.

Signature pictures will be offered to those who are 2014 MOYD winners. Below you will find the 2013 Siggies.

1. Place your cursor on the desired icon,
2. right click,
3. go to properties,
4. copy the Url,
5. go to your profile page signature box,
6. place cursor,
7. click on "enter an image" paste.
8. save changes

Let us all send a big thank you to MaryBee for making our badges!!

Please sign me up.

This will be my first year on the wagon and I'm looking forward to spending some quality time at the piano each and every day of the year.

Thank you for this great thread.

I'm willing to commit again. It's a pretty good motivator.

I'm in for 2014 too. Also, I had a pure, practice everyday for 2013 also, so could I be added to that list? I did not post much in this thread, because I didn't have any misses to report!

Thanks, Casinitaly! This has been my best MOYD year yet, and this thread has certainly helped by adding that little bit of pressure I needed!

Go ahead and throw my name in again. Show support for this.
It's easy for me. I do have to admit. Had a setback recently. Only because of MOYD did I actually do something on the keyboard some days. Now it's easier with my beloved; Ingrid.
