Morning motivation is a great thing. I don’t know how about you, but I like to read few quotes from internet and think about them and I try to adjust it to my current situation. I think about what needs to be done today, and force myself to overcome any obstacles I have during a day to make things happen. It is easier once you are motivated. Try it. It really works. Takes some time to train yourself to stay focus on your goal for a day and in long term for the ultimate goal. But it is worth it. So, today quote to keep us going with our piano practice and our piano related goals is:
With the new day comes new strength and new thoughts.
– Eleanor Roosevelt
So, lets practice, whatever you have to practice: scales, new piece of music, right hand, left hand, hands independence etc. With each key hit we become stronger. With each key hit we discover new things, new experience brings thoughts that may or will improve the way we practice. There is no secret that, though we are all build the same way, we are all slightly different with the way we learn. We need to be smart and by actually doing something find the way that will fit us. Take advantage of other people experience, try it, see it works for you. If yes? Implement. If not? Try another thing. But it needs to be done every single day.
Lets not rest till it is done. Done our way to bring to the world what is inside us, something beautiful and needed. Lets play, not tomorrow, but today 🙂
My plan for today is to continue with scales and then practice three easy (not that easy yet for me) pieces to practice the scale I am on which is Bb. All with my app I am using to improve my piano skills (PianoMarvel)
Good luck with your plan and your practice. Lets make this day count 🙂 Take care till tomorrow.
New morning and back to my routine! 30 mins of scales in the morning. If you read what I wrote for last few days you know I had no access to my piano and practiced my scales on my paper piano. I think it wasn’t smart move. My fingers were stiff and couldn’t hit keys properly for first few minutes. It felt strange for the beginning. Luckily everything came back after ca. 10 minutes. I easily remembered scales, so practicing them in my mind, what I did during my holiday too, helped I guess. But practicing on anything different then real piano or proper keyboard is not that smart idea. At least for me. I could use this time to develop my theoretical knowledge, mistake done and learnt. Will be smarter for next period of piano break. Take advantage from my mistake. Or maybe it will work for you. Who knows. Anyway todays plan is:
Scales practice in the morning – DONE
New lessons from my app for about 1 hour – afternoon to be done.
Evening session with pieces I know how to play ca. 45 min – will be done.
What is your plan? Lets remember consistent practice brings us closer to promised land
Take care and have fun!

I don’t know how is today for you, but for me it is late scales practice on my paper piano due to my holiday which are about to end. On one hand I am sad. It is great to be with family, eating home made food from the past – you know, mom cooks the best dinners in the world, tastes bring memories back, good memories… too much TV for me though. I rather spend my time with piano. And this will be given back to me. Tomorrow evening I can sit in front of my piano. I guess you are more lucky and you have access to your piano. I want to think that you take advantage of that fact and you practice, practice, practice. (read more by going through post title 🙂 )
