MOYD, "Master of Your Own Destiny", 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".

2019 will be the 15th 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 2018 badge in their signatures on 31 December 2019.

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 2019 MOYD winners. Below you will find the 2018 Siggies, for those who participated in 2018.

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, or copy image address
5. go to your profile page signature box,
6. place cursor,
7. click on "enter an image" paste. ( add [img] before the address and [/img] after. The badge address should read [ img]http://forum.pianoworld.com//gallery/42/medium/10981.png[/img], without the space after the first bracket).
8. save changes

So I actually signed up for MOYD2017, and then abandoned piano altogether after a few months. Am I allowed to rejoin for '19, or does my previous form preclude that?

Yes, I’m in!

I find MOYD very helpful. I’ll admit that there are days I don’t feel like practicing, and just do some scales, but I find MOYD a great way to ensure I do something every day!

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

I’m in too. Can’t seem to load a banner to my signature. But, it doesn’t matter. It’s the regular habit of playing that matters.

After a thousand and one internal excuses of the variety: "what if I'm busy with work? what about my trips overseas?" etc etc.... I just say to myself, "cut it out with the excuses already!"

So, I'm in.

Piano is hard work from beginning to forever. Accept this as truth or risk a quick exit with tail between legs.

Captain's Log Jan 10, 2018: Woke up in a hotel room due to a lack of water in the house. An emergency home repair collided with a long planned home improvement. Ack! Contractors everywhere! I laid out enough cash to buy a really nice hybrid piano. I am now going for my second beer. Practice ain't happening.

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

Add the 11th as well. It wasn't as bad as Thursday but still busy. Today we have a continuation of the planned project but I already managed to play my current lesson through a few times. Not much practice but still practice.

Please excuse me for January 8 - 11. I was on a work trip without access to a piano or keyboard. Happily reunited with my piano bench yesterday afternoon.

As a newbie to MOYD, if I miss a day (last Fri. Jan. 11) do I post here and relate the reason? I don't have a great excuse other than I pushed practice until too late! I've been making all days since joining on the 2nd however. It's already been a real help to do at least a little each day which I was not at all in the habit of before--thank you.

Finfan - I added the 11th as well.

MeganR- I added Jan 8-11 to your list.

ghazaleh - I added Jan 12 to your list.

Marcus NH - When you miss a day, you should come here and "confess" the reason. Then you go on the Back on the Wagon list.

torquenale - Ouch! I hope your hands are better! I will add Jan 16-17 to your excused list.

MH1963 - I will add Jan 13-15 to your list.

Suggestion -

Anyone on this thread is a person who visits Piano World with regularity.

Might I suggest that we all consider some financial support to PW? I get a lot of enjoyment from PW, and I sent my donation this week.

See the “Piano World is NOT FREE” thread at the top of the Adult Beginner forum.

Hi, I would like to please join this year. I think this will really help me practice more consistently.

Hi, Please add Jan 22 to my list of excused days. I was not at home on that day.
My daughter is 9 months old and some days I go to my parent's house. They look after my daughter and I go to work. unfortunately there is not a piano in their house.

Thanks

That is a very good suggestion MH1963! We get a lot from PianoWorld and it is nice to be able to give something back!

Pianist@Heart - Welcome to MOYD!

ghazaleh - I will add Jan 22 to your excused list.

Darn it, my first missed day and it's still January!
I was out yesterday evening (Jan 22) and did not manage to plan in advance to get some practice in before work instead. Extenuating circumstances include a recently adopted puppy which makes relaxed early mornings a thing of the past (hopefully a thing of the future too, but definitely not a thing of the present!)
Please put me back on the wagon as of today.

Hi,

I know I just started but i didn't practice on Jan. 23 and Jan. 24. I am still adjusting to working full-time temporarily and a increase in my hours. However, i need to learn to press on and still practice. I am back on the wagon today though.

Hi, could you add Jan 25th as an excused day for me please? The college workload hit me hard that day and had to focus on that instead.

I’m going to have to drop out. My practicing has gone out the window. I was visiting my sister in Oklahoma and on what was supposed to be my second to last day here, she had a heart attack. I travel home on Sunday. But i’m back in 3 to 4 weeks when she has heart bypass surgery. Practicing is going to be very hit or miss much of the Spring. So, best I just drop out of MOYD this year.

So I guess we just report our days missed here. I don't want to clutter this thread up with unwanted posts but I just hit 45 consecutive days of practice (started in mid December) and I am thrilled. I am a long-time beginner who never really committed to diligent practice but I think I have the hang of it now. I use Piano Marvel (among other things) and tell myself that all I have to do is spend 5 mins a day at the piano. I do have a piano teacher and I think she is pleased also.

Great job Tharagleb!

I feel like I am on a roll myself as I have an unbroken stretch since December 26th. I believe it is the longest stretch of daily practice I've had since I started last year. Coming up on 1st anniversary of starting piano in 2 weeks.

Hi,

Could you please add January 30 and 31 to my excused days, I have been suffering with hypoglycemia and was not feeling well on those days. I am trying to get to the piano more and had made it to the piano 4 consecutive days since my lesson last Friday. Which is a improvement for me. I am going to keep at it.

I have missed 4 days over the past 10. Honestly I don’t remember exactly which ones. I wasn’t paying that much attention.
I have bronchitis and am on my second cycle of antibiotics.
I am feeling marginally better and hope to get back into the swing now.

Hi, I did not practice the piano on Feb. 10th and Feb 11th. I love playing the piano. However, I am still adjusting to my fluctuating work schedule and being busy sometimes and fitting practice time in. However, I did make it to the piano last night and I am back on the wagon now.

Okay reporting vacation w/o piano Jan. 25-Feb. 3, but solid since then! I've never practiced so often and it is *great* to see the steady improvement. Very thankful for this program...

I must ask to be excused for Monday 11 Feb.

It was my first day getting back to work after being really sick and I was simply too tired to even think about touching the piano.

Please excuse me for yesterday, Feb. 15. I am at a conference and was not able to play. Today I was able to sit down and try some yamahas that were on display. I played a little of the Chopin nocturne and then the piano played it back to me.

Putting myself on report for February 21st and 22nd. I came down with a nasty cold. Between the cold and the cold meds focusing enough to practice was not possible.

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

I have been wondering lately if there's something wrong with SwissMS. She hasn't posted in over a month and that's not like her... I hope I'm wrong. Does anyone know anything?

Hi,
I know this is not going so well for me.I missed practicing from Feb 25th-Feb 28th. I need increase my stamina and still be able to practice after a day at work. Also, I do on most days would have time in the morning before work to practice. That is if I get up early. The getting up early is the problem, but I am working on that. Really, I am tired of every week saying that I am going to get to the piano more and then not doing it. However, it is the beginning of a new month today and can also be the beginning of me practicing like I should. I am back on the wagon today though. I do hope SwissMS is ok.

I know my solution is not for everyone, in fact I'll go on a limb and say it is for almost no one except me! But I too have problems playing in the morning or getting up early. Instead I play very late before bed. About 80% of my practice is between 1am and 3am. (I said this is for almost no one!) But as a consequence, not only have I not missed a day since December 26th, but since I started my piano practice journal on January 8th, I've never practiced less than 60 minutes in a day. So it's working for me.

Had to miss both 2/27 and 2/28 for business travel. I should have been home in time to practice on 2/28, but my &@)%$# flight ended up arriving 20 hours late. I could have walked home and arrived before that plane did!

Back at it today.

Hi,

When I do think about it Tryone when I do practice it usually has been in the evenings before bed. Glad to know I am not the only one who has trouble getting up early. Thanks for the advice. I will try to do most of my practicing in the evening before bed see how that goes.

Hi gang! I am back. I had a rough time of it in February, and have actually been away from piano for more than a month. I had bronchitis for two months, which threw me into an MS relapse. Between the vision problems and overwhelming fatigue, I have not had the energy to play or even visit piano world. All is well now, but I am likely to be relocating in the near future, so I may be a bit hit and miss.

So, to catch up!

All is well now, but I am likely to be relocating in the near future, so I may be a bit hit and miss.


Oh SwissMS, I'm very sorry to hear you have been so unwell and hope you are back to full strength soon.
Take care of yourself, relocating is sure to take it out of you too! But we will be interested to hear all about it when the time comes

Hi,

SwissMS I am glad you are doing better. I did not practice yesterday Mar.4. I could have practiced if I would have not procrastinated after getting home from work.

Hi SwissMS, I'm sorry to hear you have been unwell. I hope your recovery will continue steadily.

I need to be excused March 4-6 for being on a short vacation with my family.

Hi,
Actually I was not quite back on the wagon on March 5. Please excuse me for March 5, 6, and 7. I have not really been feeling well. I did make it to the piano on March 8.

Please excuse me for March 2, due to travel. I only wish that hotels thought that pianos were as important as televisions...

Hi,
Please also add March 9. I did not practice yesterday. I procrastinated and didn’t use my time wisely.

Hi,

Also, please add March 10th. Once again I had poor time management and did not use my time wisely.

Please excuse me for March 8th. We were away all day from 7 in the
Morning until midnight . I live in a condo and have an acoustic grand so cannot practice before 9 or After 10. We went to New York City for the day and my daughter did find her wedding dress.

Hello SwissMS and all MOYD participants!
Unfortunately I have to start this year with that "sad story". I didn't come here at the beginning of January because I had a huge project at work, which made doubt that I can make MOYD commitment. At the beginning I was still trying to play piano few minutes every day but later my bad expectations came true and last month and half ~ from Feb. 4th till today I didn't even approach piano. Instead, I had been working ~14 hours a day every single day without a single holiday since Feb 3th (which of course ended up as it was expected - with high blood pressure and few days just lying down and eating tritace).

Now, the project is done and I feel that I am missing piano... I hope such abnormal situation at work won't come again and I will be playing. But ... is it worth starting MOYD with 39 days in a raw absence report? To be honest, I am not sure.

But I want to sign up just to have one more good trigger for myself smile

michaelvi, IMHO nothing could be better right now than to re-engage with the piano.

I’ve had that sort of all-consuming work project before. When I came out of it, I suffered from what was almost PTSD.

Therapy was in order.

Music offers that kind of therapy.

Welcome!

I would love to join! For some reason, I missed this thread.
I tend to practice every single day with maybe only a few days in the year missed due to being away.

Hi,

Could you please also add to my days March 14-19. I was still not feeling well. However, I am starting to feel a little better and I am looking forward to getting back to practicing.
