Play Every Day And Learn

       I have enjoyed pedaling my bike this summer and I learned so many things that apply to playing the piano. It helped me make up my new practice incentive. If my students log their practice minutes they may have a bicycle to pedal. For every hour of practice they can colorize their bike. 

   Things I learned while pedaling:

  •    My muscles are stronger every day
  •    I have come to know the divots and potholes on the street
  •    I have more balance and trust myself more
  •    I am trying new roads because I am more confidant
  •    I feel increased joy going down the hills because I am not afraid of the upside

How does it apply to laying the piano?

  • Your fingers get stronger every day you practice
  • You come to know your weaknesses from working every day
  • Your fingers become more confident as you repeat your pieces
  • Playing everyday encourages you try new things
  • Your joy in playing increases with success
                           Two thirds of my students have earned their thousand minutes so we are on to
