Hello Fellow Persevere-ers!!!
Great lessons this week. I think we all made great insights and progress into our piano playing.
What can I say? You’re super talented, but talent doesn’t mean a thing unless one practices. You can do it! My father made me practice at least 30 mins per day when I was your age, and after awhile when I and others started to see how fast I progressed, I didn’t need to be ‘forced’ to do it anymore ~ I wanted to!
Well, my dear sir, I think ~ I ~ made a breakthrough today. You’re also very talented, but in a relatively unique way as to most others. You need and want to follow your own path, that of the creative, ‘no rules and regulations’ type. So, from now on I will encourage you to ‘improvise’, to come up with your own music and ‘free-flowing’ way of learning music and the piano. Good on you for holding to your guns!
What a breakthrough we had today, for me, especially! I discovered the source of your frustration these past 2 weeks (the alternative notes and fingerings for scales), and will rectify this situation from now on. Thanks for being patient and persevering!
