Piano, Recycling and Sorting
|decisions, decisions ... what shall I read next?|
Yesterday just happened. I didn't do anything and so have nothing to write about! But I do feel like I'm back to normal, so the rest did me good.
I have my piano lesson at 1 o'clock and this week am feeling better prepared. I haven't tackled everything he suggested but the things I have practiced I feel I have done well and have definitely absorbed the specific learning points from each exercise. We talked last week about doing duets, at my request, so today I'm taking one of the books I received when I bought my piano which is full of duets and starts with very simple ones. Joe suggested that these simple ones will be ideal for sight reading so we'll see how that goes today; I've always been good at sight reading on my other instruments but the piano is a very different beastie ... I'm sure I'll get the hang of it eventually though!
When I get back I'm hoping to take the bags of recycling I stored in the garage to the recycling yard to clear some more space ... the heap is gradually going down! Then I can make a start on sorting in the kitchen as the glass storage jars arrived yesterday ... even if I only get them washed it'll be a start!
I'm glad you are feeling better and back to normal. Today's piano lesson should be really good doing a duet with your new teacher. i take it you are pleased with your replacement storage jars this time. Enjoy your day xxReplyDelete
Thanks Eileen. The lesson was good fun and I managed to sight read the first duet with no real problems ... it was really simple though and I don't think the others will be as easy! Yes, I like these jars. They're very similar to the ones I chose before but are much better quality. Hope you have a good day too xxDelete
I agree re sight reading - more than one note at a time makes it more complicated, for sure.ReplyDelete
It's good that the jars have arrived - photos, please. :-)
Have a great day
I've decided that sight reading on the piano is character building! Yes there'll be photos of the jars one day next week. Hope you have a good day too xxDelete
You must have needed the rest. Glad you are feeling better today, ready to tackle the piano lesson.ReplyDelete
Thanks Sharon. I played as well in the lesson as I had at home and didn't make any silly mistakes so I'm pleased with how the lesson went today xxDelete
Glad to read that you are feeling better after resting on Friday and the piano lesson went well. :) Hope you have a good rest of the day. :)ReplyDelete
Thanks Bless. I really enjoyed the lesson today and have even done some more practice this evening! Hope you enjoy your day too xxDelete
