During my last lesson with my piano teacher, I complained that I wasn’t “performance ready” yet. He told me that I “was getting there”. What a huge compliment from a teacher that for the last six years has hardly ever uttered a positive comment.
One positive change that I’ve made over the past year is that now, I count out loud while playing all my pieces. And consistently too. I have it drummed into myself to count. Secondly, over the past two weeks, I have been spending more time practicing. I’ve gone from one hour a day to two hours a day at practice. That is making a huge difference in my playing also.


Wow! Too cool. Keep up the good work. It seems you have quite an expressive range for your repertoire. :slight_smile:


Foot tapping helps too, so long as your not already using the pedals. Or writing, in pencil, on the sheet music the beats/notes. Or nodding your head if you can manage all that together, lol. I typically count in my head, got that from playing clarinet and oboe cause you can’t count aloud.

Man I would love to take lessons. My old piano teacher from childhood was a real witch, we did not get along. I couldn’t bring myself to take lessons from her again. My studies and fingerings haven’t quite come back yet since I restarted playing. Trouble coordinating hands and fingers, lol. Tough getting old and out of shape.


Good for you, @Skims for taking up your instruments again. Very good!
