Play Piano Today With Dr. J

Archive for September 2013

In music,

“the work of preparation ruled by discipline should finally disappear,

so that the elegance and freshness of the form

should strike us as being spontaneous.” 

Pablo Casals

It is time to start the work of the fall
by setting goals.

It is time to prepare to achieve those goals
by creating a realistic plan.

It is time to become disciplined
by setting a practice schedule realistic enough to maintain.

This work, and yes it will be work, will provide the means to allow
the elegance and freshness of the music you play to appear.

Ah, that we all could have the joy of playing and sharing our music
in a spontaneous and carefree manner.

Now, that is a goal!
