I hate to say I hate a piece of music, but Fur Elise (I just recently learned that meant: For Elise [a woman's name)...duh]) is NOT one of my favorites, by any stretch of the imagination.

While a teenager my teacher made me memorize it before she would let me go on to a new piece. It took me about a month. Not suprisingly, I can still play about half from memory - about 50 years later.

But I never play it; I just can't stand it.

Heh, its kinda funny, I've made that mistake numerous times. I don't know why I always instinctively think that Mozart wrote that piece.

When I'm not working, I practice about 2 hours sometime 3 each day.

Just started work as a temp full time for about five weeks of phone registration at a university and at the end of the day I've had it. It's hard to come home from work and practice - I didn't realize the energy it takes, physical and mental. But what's that line from the Chorus Line, "what we do for love" - most times I manage to practce about 1 1/2 hours. Looking forward to the first week of June when this tour of duty will end. Next one will be around the end of August.

I'm good for 1 hour to 1-1/2 hours every week day with 2-3 hours spread out over the course of the day on weekends and days off. During the week, I come home from work with good intentions, but end up too brain dead to do any more then the hour's worth.

Usually I start off with some scales or other exercises to get the fingers into piano-mode. After that it's time spent working on various pieces I've assigned myself.
