dynambot - delighted to hear you have been able to play with both hands! Hope your recovery continues so well.

lautreamont - glad your lesson was so useful. If you can only do occasional lessons, my suggestion would be to get them scheduled well in advance or you may find your breaks go by without the lessons (my experience!)

JimF - your vacation sounds super!

BrianDX - well done on your 2 year pianoversary!

AOTW for me is sending my enrolment form into a music school in my city - nothing actually booked yet so I am celebrating prematurely, but the key steps of carving out a slot and applying to the school are done.
Unfortunately, my first choice of teacher has left that school, but I was never very likely to get a slot with him at a time I could actually do anyway. I've so little flexibility in when I can commit to a weekly lesson that I need to have a lot of flexibility about teacher selection.

I'm just giggling to myself about the idea of "fantasy lessons" with some of the regulars over on the piano teachers forum. What would it be like? What would we work on? How nervous would I be? and very importantly, Would they laugh at my jokes?!

To come in once with a new piece so well prepared that teach could offer absolutely no suggestions.

It would be glorious.

Who cares what we would work on. It would be worth it.

UPDATE: I'm booked in for the term, starting 21 Sep. Can't wait (also totally nervous).

Barbaram, congrats! Please tell us more about what you will be doing in the coming semester. Just what does the first semester in a music school look like?
