This fall I've resumed my piano coaching sessions with Leon Karan. We are doing great work together. Weekly lessons are a motivation to practice and stay sharp.
My progress is slow and steady. Maybe too slow though. Leon suggested gently that I practice more this week than last. Ouch!
Message received. I will be a the piano bright and early tomorrow for 90 minutes. I've booked time on Thursday and Friday as well.
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.
