Oh boy, I forgot entirely: could I file an entry on the Excused list for Thursday? Must've been a 24-hour bug or something similar, since I'm feeling much better today, and managed to get a good half-hour in at the piano.

I'm feeling fairly good about this Bartok piece, and I've got my new recording position set up, so I'll see how a recording turns out over the next couple of days.

In the essence of accountability, I missed practice yesterday. It was planned, worked a 15 hour day and had to help the mother in law in the evening so I got to eat dinner and go straight to bed when I got home. Regardless, I'm back on the wagon if that doesn't count as excused! haha.

This thread is wonderful. I don't have issues practicing or getting myself to the piano, but there have been 3 days where not wanting to come over here and hang my head low has put me behind the keys for 5 minutes playing a repertoire piece. (Hanon be damned!)

I've read about this forum for several years and only returned to the piano yesterday after months of absence. Really can't imagine my being successful at this but want to try and believe in a little work every night.
So please count me in. Two nights so far,two nights of hood practise.

Missed a day yesterday (Jan 23). My mom was visiting me from far away and the only time I had to talk with her before she left for another city was after I got back from work, which is my usual practice time, and I couldn't practice later when everyone is asleep since the piano is in the guest room.

Edit: Happy Birthday SwissMS! Thanks for all your work managing the MOYD.

Hi,

I needed to catch an early train for a work related trip, yesterday (27/1). I arrived a bit early at the station and there was a piano available as in most of stations and airports here in Paris, so I sited to play but the piano (a Yamaha upright) was in miserable conditions, couple of key broken half of the key not damped etc.

So I just played one Bach Minuetto...

Then I had no piano for the rest of day...

Does it count?

PS It remains not clear to me why they do not put digital pianos. I know they are not as appealing as acoustic one but they are definitely more resistent....

fofig - Five minutes counts, even if it is on a poor piano!

MeganR - I added Jan 21-25 to your excused list. I hope it was a good trip.

Terry Michael - Those sound like some very long days! I will put you back on the wagon.

PianoVibe - It is hard to keep the piano going with work days! I will put you back on the wagon as well.

Terry Michael, I sympathize. Nothing bothers me more than work interfering with my piano study!

Hang in there!

Left Denver on Thursday Jan 26 for my annual board meeting in NYC. Thursday afternoon and Friday I rented a piano practice room for two hours each day. Great experience. Musicians everywhere...all rooms were full with singers and every imaginable instrument. Once inside my assigned room however I could just focus on my work.

Saturday however, I was in meeting all day and then dinner. Sunday was travel all day and falling into bed exhausted.

Missed January 29 and 30.

Just quickly posting to say I successfully completed January - sat at the piano every single day! Thanks in a really big part to this thread -- on the few days where I was less than excited I remembered this commitment and made myself sit on the bench and open a book. Without fail - I stayed for much much longer than 10 minutes!

1 month down, 11 to go!

Wisebuff - I used to rent an "overflow" practice room for the Zurich Conservatory to practice after my lesson. It was not expensive (for Zurich), and it was a great experience. It was incredible listening to all the music around me - violins, singers, and of course very good pianists! I will add Jan 29-30 to you excused list.

SadieLady - I added Feb 3-6 to your list. Have a good time!

Soo - Congratulations for your first month of MOYD. It works!

Just dropping in to say thank you MOYD2017. Getting into daily habit despite life stuff was personal achievement. Not sure I am doing well with the 40 piece goal 😝, but I am okay with it, as new habits take time...
