Weekly lessons are a motivation to practice and stay sharp. With that in mind, l I've resumed my piano coaching sessions with Leon Karan. We are doing splendid work together.
My progress is slow and steady. Too slow. Leon suggested gently that I practice more this week than last. Ouch!
Message received. I will be on the piano early tomorrow for 90 minutes. I've booked practice times on Thursday and Friday too.
You've got to learn your instrument. Then, you practice, practice, practice. And then, when you finally get up there on the bandstand, forget all that and just wail.
I'm a professional pianist and music educator in West Toronto Ontario. I'm also a devoted percussionist and drum teacher.
