1-14-2015 (Black and white = happy)
I made a New Year's deal with my students. If I don't meet my practice goal every week, I pay anyone who beat my actual practice time $5 cold, hard cash.
It's so amazing how much motivation that gives me.
And so sad that it takes motivation to get me to the keyboard.
Because once I'm there, it's just SO SO SO SO SO SO SO SO SO SO SO SO SO awesome.
I'm working on two Liszt transcriptions of Schubert songs, Beethoven, Ravel, Rachmaninoff, and Bach. And that's all. Except technique, improv, and sightreading.
Yes, I need to narrow it down, but it's all so dang fun. So maybe I'll just keep practicing too many pieces and enjoy myself every minute.
