Oh frabjous day! Calloo callay! Sign up time has arrived!
It's time to take the plunge and commit to MOYD
(Master of Your Domain) 2014. Join in - play or practice (yes, there is a difference for some of us!) every day - and see how much it helps improve your piano skills!MOYD
is a personal challenge where you commit to playing the piano for some amount of time every single day
. It might be a few hours, it might be a few minutes - it doesn't matter - as long as you sit down and touch those keys!!!
It doesn't matter if it is a grand an upright, or a digital. Nor does it matter if it is your piano, or that of your neighbour, your teacher, your best friend, your second-cousin-three-times removed, the hotel piano, the cruise ship piano, the piano in your local bar or coffee shop. Any piano, any where, for any amount of time will do the job.
If you miss a day you must come here and say so.
Please report AFTER the fact. We only need to know when you DID miss playing - not that you "might not be able to play".
2014 will be the 10th 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 counts... 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
(for business, or for personal reasons) , 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 at home
, and you are not sick
and you miss a day
, you have to come here and tell us the sad story of what kept you from playing. Then you go to the "Back on the Wagon list".
5. You may start late - however no new participants are accepted after September 30th.
6. Everyone who has reported being away, being sick, falling off and getting back on the wagon, or who signs up late has the right to put the MOYD 2014 badge in their signatures on 31 December 2014.
