I don't NEED an excuse. I am 56 years old and can do what I pretty well WANT!!!

After a while, all the white keys look the same, and I don't want to practice and be totally confused at the same time.

My baby sister/brother/cousin/cat/dog (ommit as appropriate) superglued the fallboard down so there was no way i could possibly practice...

I'm committed to the July practice challenge and it's still June.

Wow! What a creative bunch of people!! I think I know what has happened... We've all gotten too good at coming up with excuses for why we can't go to work, take out the trash, do the laundry, etc. that the not-practice-piano excuses are child's play! laugh

These are hilarious!!

And, wolfindmist--my butt does hurt from sitting on the bench! I believe I can count that as a "real" excuse!! wink

(Aside to Michele--They're making you cook?!? You're such a good mom! smile )

(Aside to Shelly--Hope you're feeling better! Did you get that donut I sent you? No, not that kind--the other kind!! wink )

1. I'd tell you why I didn't practice this week but I can't remember right now.

2. I don't want to be a piano bench potato; and besides my favorite TV shows have all new episodes on right now.

3. My piano just doesn't go with my outfit today.

4. The black keys keep getting in my way.

5. The dog said I just should stop it. I listened to the dog.

6. Bad Feng Sei (is that how you spell it???) in my music room.

7. I read my horoscope and it sounded like practicing would be a really bad idea for the time being. My Psychic concurred.

8. I am not being paid enough to practice also.

9. Got sucked into reading the latest "As The Piano World Spins" flaming hot threads.

10.MY FAVORITE EXCUSE SO FAR: I'm holding out for a grand.


I have my own weapon of mass destruction in the form of a "teenage" German Shepherd. Anything she spies and can get ahold of is fair game.

Another:

"I tell you why I wasn't able to practice; but then I'd have to kill you."

From a student wearing a dark trench coat, sun glasses, and talking in a low voice.

1. My dad said he'd give me ten bucks if I didn't play on the piano.

2.I spent to much time on my computer typing up excuses for not practicing on a Piano world Thread. This author can relate....

3. I had to go away.... or else.

4. I stayed up too late to catch David Lettermen's top 10 list last night.

5. I am still holding out for a grand.

"But Mom...I don't think the metronome is keeping accurate time."

That was I like to throw at my mom many years ago to get out of practicing. Unfortunately my dad was a violinist who would bust be each and every time...

Can't blame a teenager for trying : )

I can't practice today because my wife is going to conceive this afternoon and I'd like to be there when it happens.


I'm a fool for Chopin. The biggest mistake in my life......Thinking that fishing was more fun than Bach when I was younger.

Oh dear....my excuses are more for the things I should be doing INSTEAD of practicing.... dishes, cleaning, laundry, cleaning, shopping, cleaning, baking, cleaning, cooking.. Did I mention cleaning?


It's the journey not the destination..

My mum says anything I say is an excuse. When I told her I didn't play the piano because I had a headache, she didn't belive me until I was found to have sinositis three months later. So... I don't have any excuses left now... um.. how about.. because I busted my brain doing war tactism?


I need help with composition. If you have Finale NotePad installed, please ask me to send the file somehow and rate it. Or send an Adobe Reader copy of the music.

Signs of the times.
A real-life excuse in Zimbabwe some 4 years ago which emerged in a weekly newsletter of the UK Piano Teachers Group.

"I couldn't practice because my Mom has used the piano for storing food".
