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.

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.

I'm in for 2017. I have the debilitating condition of only having time to play for a half-hour a day at 4 (FOUR) in the morning, so let's see how long that motivation holds up.

Spoiler alert: I've missed three days in a row now, from not being willing to crawl out of bed in time.

Please include me SwissMs. This past year has had far too many distractions for me.
Taking part in the MOYD 2017 will help me regain some discipline, and focus for the Spring 2017 RCM exam.
Nothing exciting, just grade 2.

Peaceful, Healthy New Year to All.

Hi Swiss MS. I got a 2015 badge but had to back out in 2016. I'd like to try to redeem myself in 2017. My arthritic hands are behaving themselves and it feels like I can give it another try. So please count me in. Thank you for this great motivator.

I can attest to this working, as a new entrant: I had severe difficulty getting out of bed at 4am today, but the thing that motivated me was that I'd have to come back here and report a miserable failure on the first day of MOYD'17, just because I was feeling sleepy.

Don't worry, I'll abide by the rules and not post every day wink

I am glad MOYD is already working for you! I can attest to its power. I came home late on Friday, exhausted from a grueling trip. As I was heading to bed, MOYD called me. So I sat down and played for 1/2 hour. I felt so much better after playing!

I have been waiting for this thread to show up. Wasn't able to log on Jan. 1st or 2nd, but I am here now. I actually have played every day since getting my new digital around mid-December. I love the piano. I tried MOYD back in 2013, but within two months of buying my then new Casio PX-350 Grandma's cats destroyed it by "marking their territory" right on top of the keyboard. Did Grandma offer to replace it? No! I had to make payments on that sucker until 2014. Since all the cats are dead now (don't look at me like that it was old age, and that's my story and I am sticking to it) I knew I had to replace it and get back at learning to tickle the ivory. Sign me up please!

I'm aiming for another year of keeping on track!
Even looking back and seeing all the breaks is neat. It is also great to realize the progress that's made when I have been away from the keys from time to time.
2017 will be a year of solidifying pieces for me I hope!

Hi guys,

Really new here but enjoying a lot the forum. I am on over 40 adult piano student. Life is busy, but I do need to get more consistent as well.

I do travel a lot for personal and professional reason, but I will try to get daily time on the piano for 2017.

Let's see...

thanks for this

Can't believe I did it this quick, but I fell off the wagon yesterday. I have a sleeping disorder and was tired all day and fell asleep around 5:00pm planning to play later, but my planned fifteen min. nap turned in to sleeping until 3:00am this morning. I am back on the wagon though as I have spent about 3 hours with Piano for All. I had been neglecting PFA in favor of learning some basic Christmas tunes. Since Christmas is now over I am back on PFA. Please put me in the "Back on the Wagon" list.

I'd love to join in this year! I think I was too shy to join in for last years even though I was a month before the Sept. cutoff, so I'm forcing myself to go this year!

I'm looking forward to trying to be more active on these forums instead of just lurking, all the advice here is amazing!

I have a question on the rules. I now have an IPad that has apps for music theory, sight reading, and ear training. Do those count as practice? If so I could continue to practice when traveling even though I don't have a keyboard available.

After you travel, you can come back and just say those days you were out of town. You'll be put on the excused list (according to the first post). People have lives, and there will be times that you can't play smile

Finfan - as bSharp[C]yclist said, you need to actually be sitting at a piano for it to count as MOYD. Travel days are excused days, which a keep a list of in the first post of the thread for everyone. It is expected that people will have days traveling or sick when they cannot play.

ThePawn - I will put you Back on the Wagon today. I hope your workload lightens up!

I need to be excused for Jan. 8-14. I was visiting my mother and had no piano for practice. Had there been a piano, you can be sure my mom would have been all over me to practice. smile

Hi, although I'm late in replying to this thread, I've been MOYD every day of 2017 thus far (although will have to ask for a few excused days shortly)

Thanks!

Hi,

Please add me for 2017. I was happy with how this worked out in 2016. I missed the last few days of 2016 and the first few days of 2017 due to travel - however I did get to briefly play in a recently opened piano store in my home town, as well as on an unexpectedly nice piano at the Minneapolis-St. Paul Airport.

Thank you,

Jeff

Aloha! Missed one day (January 15)on the return from a wonderful vacation to Kailua Kona, Hawaii. We rented a weighted digital yamaha for a week and when the others were sleeping early in the morning, I was watching the dark turn to light and playing the piano. The full moon on the ocean at 4 AM is amazing.

I missed reporting out for Wednesday 18th Jan. Not that I really minded - we went to hear Emanuel Ax at the VSO playing Beethoven's Emperor! What a treat! I got in a bit of practice before we left and when we got back so it was only one day. Facing a much bigger absence next week which I'll report in for as soon as plans are finalized.

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.

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...

Echoing Pianoperformance's sentiment: since my regular play-time slot is 4am, it takes a disturbing amount of motivation to get me out of bed and to the piano, and fear of ending up Off the Wagon has been at least half of my motivation in these winter months.

And yeah, I'm at three out of "40" pieces for the year; it's not happening, but I am at least making progress.

Casinitaly - I am sorry to hear that you have the flu! That is totally miserable. I will put you on the excused list for Feb 5.

OrangredStilton - Don't count yourself out of the 40 piece challenge yet! Three pieces for January is quite respectable. 40 pieces is less that 4 per month!

I missed a day Saturday, Feb 4, because we were in Cordoba for our anniversary. 23 years together!

Please excuse me again today. 6 Feb.
I am better than yesterday but exhausted and have had headaches all day.

Happy Anniversary SwissMs and GMajor...glad you could go and celebrate. Casinintaly, hope you're starting to feel better. A bad bug has been going through campus and my family too. Keeps folks down for a week or so. I'm drinking vitamin C and zinc hoping to avoid it.

I had to miss practicing Feb. 7, but it was for a good cause. I was downtown working from very early until dinnertime, at which point I left my business meeting to join my wife and SiFi and his better half for the Yuja Wang/Leonidas Kavakos recital at Strathmore. Didn't get home until very late, knowing I'd have to leave today by 6am. So no practice last night -- but tons of inspiration!

Thanks. This was my first time seeing Yuja live. She's amazing, and for once we had great seats -- fourth row center.

It was an unusual recital: Four violin/piano sonatas. They all had formidable piano parts.

FWIW, I thought Yuja overshadowed her violin partner, but that's no shame on him. She's an exceptional musician.

I have not practiced since last Friday. frown I have been moving from Poland to Canada and it took me a few days to settle. I don't have a piano yet but I plan to get one tomorrow and restart my MOYD, and if I don't then I'll come back here to confess.

Qazsedcft - Congratulations on your adventure in moving to Canada. Moving countries is a big deal, and does indeed take time away from piano. I was piano-less for weeks last fall in my move to Spain. I will add Feb 3-10 to your excused list. Have fun piano shopping!

In the interests of full accountability, I'd like to be excused for Feb 8: some kind of bug had me laid up in bed at my usual practice time.

Back to it yesterday and today, making progress with my current piece wink

Hi guys,

I am just arrived in the alps today and I will be skiing for the whole week I hoped there was a piano in the hotel but this does not seem to be the case.

So I will be probably not playing from the 11/2 to the 18/2 since I will no piano.

Thanks

Please add Feb 15 and 16 to my list of absences. I was in Phoenix at a workshop on Student Success and although I took my music, there was no piano available. Probably not enough free time to touch one anyway.

Skiing was great and in fact, almost as good as the time in switzerland!

Hi!
unfortunately I could not practice on Feb 19
I always practice piano in the morning, before going to work. Yesterday, we had an audit at work. so, I had to study some documents in the morning (instead of playing piano)
I got back home at 6 pm. I had enough time but I was mentally tired. I could not do anything. not playing piano, nor cooking! confusedI just wanted to rest!
but good news is that I am off today and I can practice double!

I also need to be added to the excused list for Feb 21-24, please. Not only am I in Las Vegas (and far away from my beloved Boston), but I have the flu to boot. So on the road and sick. Count me as doubly unable to play. Or function really. Ugh.

I can only plead forgiveness: I've missed four days this week, through a combination of:

- Sleeping late so I miss my 02:30 alarm;
- Not wanting to practice something that's unfamiliar (basic improv).

Terrible, I know, but I'm working through it; I might get a recording of how my improv sounds in the next couple of days.

I missed 2/24/17 and 2/25/17 due to surgery for a broken wrist.

I'm planning to spend extra time working on chords. One handed practice isn't much fun, but I'll find something to do.

The injury is my right hand and I'm open to suggestions on what I can practice with just my left hand.

mom3gram - These things happen. I will put you Back on the Wagon Feb 25.

OrangeredStilton - Slumps happen and life has a way of getting in the way of practicing sometimes. I will put you Back on the Wagon Feb 25.

Oongawa - Big time ouch! It sounds like you will be down for a while. I hope your wrist heals soon! I will add Feb 24-25 to your excused list.

Today we have to move out of our temporary apartment, but our place is still three weeks away from completion. I am going to try to have our rental piano moved into the place I have rented for the next three weeks, but I will not know if it will work out until tomorrow. I hate to think I might be without a piano for three weeks! cry

I was ill last week so may I be excused please SwissMS for the 20th and 23rd February. I did sit on the bench on the 22nd but doubt that my unfocused plonking was productive.

Hope you wrist heals quickly Oongawa. I had to take 2 weeks off last year after surgery. Frustrating!

Hi SwissMS, I will need to be excused from June 19 - July 8, 2017. Am giving notice well in advance since I may forget to when the time comes. I'll be busy exploring Newfoundland/Labrador with a side trip to St. Pierre and Miquelon; the only bit of France left in North America. FYI, the currency used is the Euro. Thanks

Sundew - I hope you are feeling better! I will add Feb 20-23 to your excused list.

jandz - I added Feb 28 - Mar 3 to you list. Have a good trip.

Tone Deaf - Well, that is way in advance! I will add June 19- July 8th to your list. You can let me know if the days need to be adjusted after the trip. You never know - you might find a piano along the way! You sent me to Wikipedia to research those French islands. I had no idea France had a presence in North America.

I successfully completed our move to another apartment without missing a day at the piano. I was so tired after packing and carrying, but MOYD made sure that I made it to the bench!

Well done on surviving the move (I hate moving!!) AND keeping up your MOYD commitment SwissMS!

I completed February successfully -- but March is going to be trickier. Some holiday and work will be ramping up -- but I'm determined to make it 3 months in a row if at all possible. smile

Well done on the move SwissMS, and I'm guessing that you managed to get your rental piano moved too given that you made it to the bench afterwards- kudos!

ToneDeaf, your trip sounds great. I had no idea about St Pierre et Miquelon, I'm feeling a little bit educated!

Oongawa, sorry to hear about your wrist and good luck with the recovery. Someone played a piece for the left hand alone in an ABF recital a while ago, I remember it being a lovely piece in it's own merits - might be more interesting than chords.

Thank-you MOYD!

Was so busy yesterday, I was heading for bed when I realized I hadn't practiced all day. First time this year. Couldn't let that happen, so turned around and put it some time. Whew...that was close.

Greetings. I am afraid I have to report in for absence since Feb 4th. Unexpected turn of events meant thoracic surgery scheduled next week so this was an opportunity to take a trip. Of all the most unlikely candidates for the dreaded lung cancer I had to be the one, totally healthy, clean life style and never smoked. I doubt I'll be back at the keys for a while. I did play yesterday and was amazed how much difference letting pieces 'rest' can make! Still need lots of work though and I look forward to that challenge just as soon as I can start playing again. MYOD Fro 2017 will have to be a miss but I shall enjoy reading how you all are keeping up with things!

Palmpirate, as someone who has gotten bad news before across the desk from the doctor, my heart goes out to you.

We live in an age of medical miracles. I will hope for the very best for you.

I need to be excused for March 16 due to illness. I'm back at the piano today, though with an abbreviated practice session. It gets old, fast, having to stop every 50 seconds to wipe one's nose!

Stubbie - I hope you feel better soon! I will add March 16 to your excused list.

We moved to yet another rental apartment on Wednesday. I am currently piano-less until we move into our own place, which was supposed to be completed the 1st of February, then the 1st of March, and now the 1st of April. I still have lessons, and we work on aural and theory. I am learning a lot, and the neighbors are treated to hearing me sing blush, but I miss playing a piano!!

March 9th I crashed the bike and made a mess of my right pinky:

http://forum.pianoworld.com/ubbthreads.php/topics/2625176/Re:_Broke_little_finger_(tip)_.html#Post2625176

After my ER visit, a couple of trips to a hand specialist, and now the beginning of therapy I'm now back at the piano looking for pieces for left hand only. Right hand can only do much but I'm trying to mimic play with it as much as possible.

Please excuse me for March 9th - 17.

Begging forgiveness for 3/24. Extremely difficult day at work followed by the discovery that a contractor came in to finish a project unannounced and left our kitchen in disarray. Practice just didn't happen.
