Hi there,

Did not visit the PW for long time. Last time I wrote and asked you to set your musical goals for 2020. The first half of the year was dominated by Covid. Only january-february I worked as volunteer in the national organmuseum in the Netherlands. Also I was working there for some days in july and august.

In august I went to hospital and and got the diagnose prostate cancer. 16 th of november I had a surgery, radical prostatectomie, which was the only option in my case. The hospital was specialized in this surgery and works together with European prostatecancer centre. All other therapies were ruled out.

Perhaps, now at home, I will find more time to spend on PW. Maybe I start again the thread what did you play today....just to inspire each other.

Best regards

That's a terribly rough year you've had; I hope things are moving steadily in the right direction going forward. I'm reminded of one of my favourite songs from more recent times, John Miles' "Music", with the line: "In these times of trouble, my music sees me through". I hope your music does help you as well.

Your "musical goals" thread is one of the greatest threads I have ever participated in anywhere, and I keep my own goals firmly in mind to a large extent because of it.

I'm really sorry to hear about your health issues, Johan, it must've been a very tough period. I hope you'll recover soon and that you'll find joy in music again

I've been playing the piano since Jan '18.
More recently, I passed Grade 6 with distinction and plan to take Grade 7 in late 2021.

I am documenting my progress, recitals and experiences of learning how to play the piano as an adult on my YouTube channel.
