Well, they say learning and instrument, a new language, or giving up retirement keeps you young. I and still learning what feels like a new instrument every time I start practice, am linguistically challenged even in my mother tongue, but can attest to the third suggestion. Mind you there is another saying that I feel is appropriate - Never worked and never will. Although we have never worked harder in our lives, it remains a joy to be involved with what we have created. But to get back on topic, I had the best lesson ever last week. The first after about 8 weeks by now. I really had only played about 2 hrs after an extended absence so really wondered about even going and I am so glad I did. Beethoven's Sonata No15 is almost there. Into the last 10% was what my teacher proclaimed. Phew! Now for the fun bit.

I started the Aria from the Goldburg Variations for a change of pace and was pretty pleased with my weeks work on it. A lesson helped simplify bars 21 and 23 with the really funny squiggles, which different people on Youtube play differently! But now I'm out of town so practice time is down. I know I could have nailed it this week. Will have to skip a lesson too so maybe I'll be back on track by then.

My AOTW is resuming lessons after almost two months off. It's good to get back to lessons, though (sigh) they never get easier nerves-wise.
