It's Time to Rediscover the Piano

A lot of people tell me that they used to play the piano. Some have fond memories of working towards and receiving their RCM Grade 8. Others talk of mean teachers and hating lessons. Some insist that now they couldn't play a note even though they used to play well. Over the years I have run into very few adults however, who say they are glad that they quit piano.

I think this is because there is something really satisfying about playing the piano. It nourishes the mind, heart, and spirit. It requires some real effort - but in the end you have beauty. 

Come and rediscover the piano! I am teaching a group class for lapsed adult players on Wednesday evenings at 7:30. During these classes we will look at things like: repertoire, practice strategies, duets, improvisation and overcoming long-standing hurdles. I am hoping that these classes will offer inspiration, motivation and new perspectives.

Today is a good day to start practicing

There is no time like the present. Seize the day. Just do it. Mantras to motivate that have been around for a long time - especially the second one.

I sometimes find it hard to start practising, but once I start it's really easy to just keep going. I am like that with exercise too. I will procrastinate going for a walk, but then don't want to stop once I start. 

If you go and play piano right now - even for a few minutes - you will feel inspired. If you make that choice everyday, in a month you will rock.

Inertia is a powerful force - especially when trying to change or adopt a new habit. The couch is so seductive that even though you might want to do something different, the lure of "just another episode" is overwhelmingly strong. Fight the power.

Playing the piano can stave off a slew of neurological problems. It also gives you something new to post about.
