The moment we've all been waiting for - it's sign up time for MOYD (Master of Your Domain) 2012. Join in - play every day - and see what a great difference it will make to your piano skills!

MOYD is a personal challenge where you commit to playing the piano for some amount of time every single day. If you miss a day you must come here and say so.

2012 will be the 8th year of MOYD on ABF.


MOYD RULES

1. Participating in MOYD requires you to sit on the piano bench and play something at least once daily. That's it. There is no minimum amount of time required. Five minutes would count... but more is better. Simply get to the piano every day, let it become a habit, and see what good things happen to your piano skills.

2. If you are away from home, you don't have to practice/play. You go to the 'Excused list".

3. If you are sick, you don't have to practice/play. You go to the 'Excused list".

4. If you are home, and not sick and miss a day, you come here and tell us the sad story on what kept you from playing. Once you have come clean and 'fessed up, you then go to the "Back on the Wagon list".

5. You may start late - however no new participants are accepted after September 30th.

6. Those who have reported being away, being sick, falling off and getting back on, or who sign up date STILL QUALIFY to put the MOYD 2012 badge in their signatures on 31 December 2012.


HOW TO JOIN

Simply reply to this thread declaring your enthusiastic willingness to join in and be committed to the plan!

I will check in regularly and update this first page with the information you provide. I will not reply to all the posts.

Signature pictures will be offered to those who are 2012 MOYD winners. Here are the 2011 Sigs.
TO ADD THEM TO YOUR SIGNATURE: Place your cursor on the desired icon, right click, go to properties, copy the Url, go to your profile page signature box, place cursor, click on "enter an image" paste.

I'm ambivalent. I'm already practicing every day. I'm afraid if I join it will make practice feel like a burden. And I'm not motivated by the badge. And I'm going to be out of town on Jan. 1, with no piano, which is an annoying way to have to start. On the other hand the camaraderie of joining the thread might be fun.

Anyone want to talk me off the fence one way or the other?

Well, I would hate to think you feel it a burden. (-1)
However, you already do play everyday. (+1)
Having a start dates of 2 Jan is not a big deal. (+1)
Sharing in the camaraderie is just good fun.(+1)
The badge isn't "important" - but it is a symbol of being part of the group, which comes back to the camaradiere.(+1)

I'd say joining in wins 4 to 1. But it's up to you!

OK, casinitaly, you've convinced me. You may as well put me on the Excused list to start out, because unless I somehow wangle some playing time at my sister's church on New Year's Day, I won't be at a piano until January 2.

I'm in. Although I already know I have to be on the excused list from Feb. 23 to Feb. 27 due to travel plans that don't include a piano. And probably again in the fall. I don't think I'll ever make the "pure" list!

Doug, you sound so enthusiastic and willing! I'm inspired smile

CMohr - my pleasure ... and I hope you make it to the "pure" list this year.... .(I doubt I will, but even so, as long as I am legitimately excused I'm going to feel great about my dedication!)
