I have decided that I am going to get back to the business of practising piano from now on. Maybe just one hour every day or maybe more or less, depending on the situation.
The trigger for that was the other night when I was listening to the Internet Easy Piano radio channel, I felt extremely compelled to pick it up again, and the day before, I saw an ad on Chronicle about a piano class in a music studio at Belconnen recruiting new students who want to have fun with playing piano no matter they are beginners or just want to get back to the piano business.
It all got me thinking of doing it again. I guess the reason I didn’t practise a lot is I am lack of self discipline, as well as I didn’t realise that my situation has changed dramatically. I can’t really follow the old way to practise piano as what I did before. I need new drives and more appropriate way to make me do this. The skills I had have been out of practise for a long time, but I can’t really get it back by sitting there hours and hours playing boring pieces specially made for my fingers. I need to combine my interests with the hard work together to get me going.
By the way, most of time when I play, I instantly lost my interests as most of things are really rubbish. Not that I am being arrogant or dismiss the beauty of some popular modern piano master pieces, it’s the feeling that you get from playing them…the dry, dull and pretentious way that had been expressed in the music….You know what I am talking about if you are in this business.
So my target in the next month would be totally about Claude Debussy. Reverie, Arabesque No.1 and Claire de lune….Just love them
