It is time to make the commitment for 2017! So, take the plunge and commit to MOYD (Master of Your Domain) 2017. Join in - play 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 any other. If you are traveling and you come across an available piano and play for five minutes, it counts! Any piano, anywhere, 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".

2017 will be the 13th year of MOYD on ABF.

MOYD RULES

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 everyday, 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 that day. 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. This is a hard deadline in fairness to everyone who has participated all year.

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 2017 badge in their signatures on 31 December 2017.

HOW TO JOIN

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.

Signature pictures will be offered to those who are 2017 MOYD winners. Below you will find the 2016 Siggies, for those who participated in 2016.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR ADDING IMAGES TO YOUR SIGNATURE:
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












So, 2016 MOYD'ers, grab a badge and display it proudly! You earned it with your hard work in 2016. Then, join in again for another year of fun with MOYD!

I like the green badges!

I'm in again this year. 2017 will be my 8th year!
My husband now checks up on me, it's so much part of the daily routine here!

Thanks for running the show again this year SwissMs, we all appreciate the help in staying on track!

I am glad you like the green, Casinitaly! Last night my husband Gary wrote a program to automatically produce all the badges for a year with one click. We had fun working on the program together.

Chairing the MOYD thread also helps me make sure to get the bench everyday!

I'm in. Some days this was the only incentive I had to sit at the piano, but once I was there it was easy to stay and practice for a decent amount of time.

I practice regularly, but every single day? That sounds impossible! OK. I'm going to try.

You only have to play a little bit each day to qualify for MOYD. Five minutes on the bench counts! So, no pressure...

I think I have everyone added so far. It is nice to see repeaters and new people!

Confession time - I missed 2 days in December :-( Can't remember why I missed December 9 - I know I volunteered at the Symphony in the afternoon, but no idea why I didn't get to practice in the morning. Also missed Christmas day - I had company staying over. But I managed 2 practice sessions on Boxing Day, and I'm going to have time for a 2nd one today. Will I escape punishment???

The above should have been in MOYD 2016 & I've posted it there; thought I had deleted it here. But in any case I'm in for 2017.
