Some of my goals are the same, some are modified, some are new!

2017:
Stay with MOYD-this will be my eighth year!
2018: I've signed up , moving into (gasp!) my 9th year! woohoo!

2017
Participate in all the e-citals and at least one themed recital.
2018: keep all the e-citals as goals, but I'm not committed to a themed recital. We'll see. I'd like to participate in one live recital (not a piano party, a real recital, where there would even be people I don't know in the audience!

2017
Participate in at least 2 public performances
2018 - yes, I'll try for this again!

2017
Play for others - at least 6 times (husband doesn't count for this, he's my most faithful supporter, but I have to play for people who don't hear me regularly)
2018 I'm going to up this to 12 times. I have the Performance Anxiety Club going now, and our plan is to meet once a month - but we'll be off a couple of times in the summer --- still, I think I can do it!

2017Continue to work on technique - focused practice, more use of metronome during study for getting fluidity from the start.
2018 How could I give up on that?

2017Follow a system of refreshing pieces so that I have some sort of repertoire
Now I have about 6-7 pieces I can pick up and play. I'm aiming for a total of 20
2018 --- I didn't meet this goal for 2017, so I am just going to leave it as is.

2018
learn the harmonic and melodic minor scales and arpeggios.
work on a composition
work on playing from lead sheets

I am a slow learner when it comes to piano so my goals are much more modest that most.

1. To continue with lessons. I just retired so my income has been greatly reduced. I'll need to find a way to finance this. I foresee a part time job in my future.

2. To finally overcome my arch-nemesis the metronome. My sense of time is not the best and I need to internalize this before I can move on.

3. To complete another year of MOYD.

Modest but necessary goals.

A lack of talent does not stop you from learning piano. It just takes longer and you have to work harder.

1. Be more consistent in creating new instrumentals.
2. Learn sound design (At least good enough to create some of my own sounds).
3. Start producing / recording professional sounding music.

2018 is the year where I start 'mastering' my music. No pun intended.

Resolutions, or hopes, for the new year:
1) Learn some pieces well enough to play them with confidence for others;
2) Play some music, musically, for some of my very musical friends.
These are really the same, almost!
3) Continue to play without stress or strain or injury, and with pleasure and attention.
4) Record and upload some pieces, even if I am not satisfied with them, so I can look back later and see my progress.
5) Apply my “perfectionist” tendencies for good, not evil! That is, work to get better at playing, but also take risks, the better to explore and to share the beauty of the music.

Thank you for presenting this question!

Smile each night when sitting down at the piano.

I'll be getting my first (and quite likely last) Grand this year (probably February), so I'm hyped up for the year. My goals for the year in random order:

  • To learn at least one piece that's graded 7 ABRMS
  • Learn a whole lot of easier ones (anything from 4-6) currently in my range
  • Get my training regimen down to actually properly practice scales and stuff more regularly
  • Start improvising!
  • Compose more than "just a little bit randomly"
  • Record every piece I learn (if not for anything else, then for record keeping)
  • Personal blog about piano practice, insights, technique


I know one shouldn't think of music as grades, but it is that extra achievement that'd benchmark an accomplishment. Advancing a grade per year isn't too far fetched anyway and most of the pieces I want to play start around grade 8.
