Busy Friday…

Just remember, you can do anything you set your mind to, but it takes action, perseverance, and facing your fears.

– Gillian Anderson

I am already after my piano session. I hope you have planned yours already and you are ready to follow your plan. It is so important to practice every day. Do not hesitate a minute and simply do it. It is worth it. With every minute you spent with your piano brings you and me closer to ultimate goal we have, to play and enjoy the music we can play. No matter what it is… practising those exercises you do, or learning new pieces, songs or maybe simply playing what you know already. All will do. With every note we play we are becoming better and better. Quite obvious right? But we must actually do it.

So, I am after my session with my apps (Piano Marvel and plagroundsessions.com) and below you can find my plan I followed:

  • warm up with Canon in C, playing it with not full speed. It still needs a lot of practice,
  • further warm up with Scale in F major (two octaves scales, chords and arpeggios),
  • proper practice session on my Canon in C, working on parts where I have some problems and then playing it in right tempo,
  • repetition of my exercises from Technique section in Piano Marvel: Boom Chuck Accompaniment exercise and Rolled Chords Accompaniment exercise,
  • first attempt in Technique section of: Alberti Bass Accompaniment – I already see this is a bit of challenge for me,
  • saying good by to my first app (Piano Marvel) by playing few times two pieces I like to play a lot: The Last RoseΒ andΒ A lonely walk,
  • further tests of new app (playgroundsessions.com) which looks promising giving a bit different experience while learning. I kind of like it already. I purchased a song: “Falling Slowly” and it is based on their system Intermediate – Moderate level. I hope I will learn it soon πŸ™‚
  • Writing this post for you πŸ™‚ and me as well, to be ready for tomorrow morning with new piece to listen right after I wake up πŸ™‚

All right, that is my plan I followed. I recommend planning, it helps to find the time to play, properly plan your session, expect how much you need for next one based on what you already done. It is great routine to simply take advantage from and make progress on weekly basis. I recommend.

OK. Now, a bit of music for tomorrow morning. Maybe it is good to leave F. Chopin for day or two and find something different. (few minutes later πŸ™‚ )

All right, I found this piece of music, play it in the morning if you like, I only can tell for me this routine works quite well so far. I am big fun of Movie Themes so, here it is Claudia’s Theme. I will wake up with this tomorrow, are you? Enjoy. Ps. It is not me playing it, yet πŸ™‚

All right,

That is all for now, I will see you tomorrow in the world where we you and I will be a bit, one step closer to our dream πŸ™‚

Play and have FUN!

Take care.
