MOYD 2019

Posted By: SwissMS

MOYD 2019 - 01/01/19 10:13 AM

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.

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.

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.

Re: MOYD 2019 - 01/23/19 01:41 PM

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.

Re: MOYD 2019 - 01/25/19 03:19 PM

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.
Posted By: dynamobt

Re: MOYD 2019 - 01/31/19 04:31 PM

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.

Re: MOYD 2019 - 01/31/19 10:44 PM

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.

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.

Hi, on Feb. 3rd, 4th, and 5th I was not able to make to the piano. I am still trying to get into a better routine with practicing
Things are not going so well so far. However, I am determined to get back on track.

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.

Re: MOYD 2019 - 03/01/19 03:17 PM

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.

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.

Re: MOYD 2019 - 03/16/19 03:02 PM

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
Posted By: ClsscLib

Re: MOYD 2019 - 03/17/19 11:12 AM

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!

For 24/25 March I also did not play - we got news while away that a contractor was available to start work on Monday, about 6 weeks ahead of what we expected, so when I got home on Sunday & all day Monday was spent scrambling to clear rooms and outdoor space for this work and I had no time or energy left for piano.

Sometimes we all just have to give ourselves rewards for success. Decide on a reward - could be something as simple as a bowl of ice cream - and give it to yourself if you spend even 5 mins at the keyboard. Good luck with getting back on the wagon!

I am about to be without a piano for a while. We are moving, and the piano movers will take it away Wednesday. It is nerve wrecking to send in out the window and watch it go down 15 stories, but that is how it came here. The problem is, we will not move into our new home until the middle of May. I am sure I will be in serious piano withdrawal by then!

bSharp(C)yclist I will add April 12-14 to your list. Have fun with Shallow!

Snejana - Days like that happen sometimes! I will put you back on the wagon April 19

I am about to be without a piano for a while. We are moving, and the piano movers will take it away Wednesday. It is nerve wrecking to send in out the window and watch it go down 15 stories, but that is how it came here. The problem is, we will not move into our new home until the middle of May. I am sure I will be in serious piano withdrawal by then!





Good luck on your move!

We have moved out of our Malaga home, and are now living in a hotel in our new town awaiting the close of the home we are buying. I am piano-less but enjoying my new surroundings. The piano moved out without a hitch. It took five men and a very large crane to move it from our fifteen floor apartment, but they made it happen!

Hi,
I missed practice on April 27th, Saturday.

We had traveled all day Friday. The next day, was back on the road again. Made it back to hometown in time to attend evening worship service. Hadn't seen my friends since Palm weekend, so we went out for unscheduled dinner. Made some new friends, had fabulous Mediterranean style food. The owners were so accommodating of our large group and never rushed us. We had such a good evening that we didn't notice we were the last ones out of the place. Definitely a night to remember!

I resumed practice the next day, Sunday April 28th. Thank you and belated Happy Easter!

Hi,

A little bit late reporting my missed days, but I have missed practicing April 7th- April 26th. I did resume practicing on April 27th. Then I missed practicing April 28th and April 29th, Then I resumed practice again on April 30th. The last date I missed practicing was May 2nd. However, I am back on the wagon today. Somedays I missed because of health reasons and some I could of done better and made time to practice. I am still looking forward to my lesson tonight and I will keep at it.

My compensation was seeing the wonderful new production of “West Side Story” at Chicago’s Lyric Opera and visiting with two of my best friends. None of that helps directly with my upcoming jury, but it was worth it!

I am thinking I would like to join, as an experiment. There are musical things I want to explore. They might not look very much like the bulk of what gets called "playing" or "practicing" piano here on PW, but I think planning to use the piano to explore these things every day would be good for me.

Hi,

I came off the bandwagon again. I did not practice May 7-May 9. I was preparing for a job interview, however I do know I need to use my time better and I could have practiced in addition to preparing for the interview. Also, I am back on the wagon as of May 10th. Thankfully, I am back on the wagon faster than usual and didn’t miss weeks like I usually do.

casinitaly- I hope you enjoyed your visit back to Canada visiting your parents! I will add April 24-30 to your excused list.

Well, my moving saga is continuing. We have lived in a hotel since April 23. The house we thought we were moving into ended up having some issues we didn't want to deal with, so we passed on it. That turned out to be a good thing, because we found a house that is perfect for us! We purchased it a week ago, but we are renting to the sellers until the 15th of June to allow time for them to move out. So- i have three to four more weeks without a piano!! I have the perfect place for it when it finally does come home though! It should be nestled in its own space by June 18.

Re: MOYD 2019 - 05/27/19 10:30 AM

I missed May 17-19 when I went camping at a state park. Although I had my keyboard along, the tendinitis I've been struggling with in my elbows is supposed to be rested and this was a good opportunity. Is it all healed? No, not yet but I'm seeing progress. It does not hurt when playing piano unless I play for long periods, so I don't believe that's the underlying cause. Probably lifting since that's the movement where I feel the most pain.

Just wanted to note that today is my 165 straight day of piano practicing in my streak. Even when I injured my left pinky two months ago, I did 4-finger practice on LH or RH only practice.

I mention this now because my wife is upset I haven't been to our Amsterdam flat in a long while and summer being what it is, if I can't find a suitable travel piano, this streak will come to an end soon frown

Some of that time I could have practiced. However, I have been sick with a cold that has now turned into a sinus infection .I am back on the bandwagon as of June 15.

Quick question: From reading the rules, being out of town or ill, puts one on the excused list, but what if a family member is ill? One of my family is currently seriously ill and her illness has prevented practice. Do I report the days missed caring for her as excused or back on the wagon? I’m really missing my piano time!

SwissMs already excused you so you have your answer, but I would just add that (in my opinion at least) the fundamental distinction is "didn't play" vs "couldn't play". There's a certain amount of grey area of course, but this is an honour system anyway so the main thing is to be honest with yourself!

And with that in mind,
Please may I be excused for 11 July - 7 August, as I was away with no piano access
However, I also missed 10 Aug due to being busy and not making the time, so please put me back on the wagon from 11 Aug

CLM Piano Learner - will put Aug 11 and Sept 4-7 on your excused list.

Casinitaly - I will add Aug 8 to your list. I hope you are feeling better.

barbaram - I will add July 11-Aug 7 to your excused list, and put you back on the wagon as of Aug. 11. Sometimes it really difficult to get in the time! We are in the midst of house and garden remodeling, and I will admit there have been days when I haven't been on the piano bench more than a few minutes some days!

Please excuse me for 15 August.
My aunt, who was like a second mom to me, passed away and I didnt even think about touching the piano.

Hello,

Please excuse me for 23-30 August - a cruise in the South Pacific. Plenty of live piano music - but none from me.

Thanks,

Patrick.

MeganR - I will add Aug 30. Spt 1-2 to you excused list.

PatrickBl- I will add Aug 23-30 to your list. Don't you hate it when you can see a piano but you are not allowed to play it?

Please sign me up. I bought a piano about four years ago and then it got put on the back burner. I am starting over and am glad I didn't miss the deadline for this.

Back at it today (though the lesson was interesting for this rusty old guy!).

Today (Oct 12th) seems to have slipped away without practice. Once more I have sinned!

Re: MOYD 2019 - 10/14/19 07:27 AM

Please excuse me for 13 October. We were travelling. I managed to play a bit Saturday morning (love my silent system) but when we got home late last night, I was tooooooooo tired.
