At today's piano lesson I got a "Well done!" from my teacher for one of my pieces and she followed it up with "That's the best I've heard you play." I almost fell off the piano bench! Those little morsels of encouragement now and then are life-savers, as most of us who frequent AOTW know!

Well, the week isn't finished yet but I can see where it's leading to.
Already on the 2nd day of what seemed like an awkward fingering for the L.H. comes quite natural now.
The ear has learned a scale run up to the highest E and down, together with other various short scale runs and variations.
The first 16 bars memorized without really trying, just by working on some speed.
And I started out by not being able to memorize even the simplest things on piano/keyboard not too long ago.
The incredible thing is that it becomes easier all the time, so far.
Not saying it has been easy, though. Quite a struggle.
So, I am quite pleased actually.

Cefinow and JimF, thank you and thank you!


RaggedKeyProfessor, isn't it amazing how the impossible becomes possible! I think that is one of the 'life lessons' learning to play the piano teaches us!

Have been practicing Sibelius' Le Sapin (op 75 no 5) for hours and hours, finally have more or less mastered the notes in the middle part!

Practice results on Soundcloud

Tempo needs to be doubled and it doesn't yet sound correct (have piano lesson tomorrow so hopefully will get pointers on those), but it is already about 5x better than last week!
