About

Like many piano teachers, over the years my own piano playing has taken a back seat to teaching and all the administrative work that goes along with running a music studio. This year I’ve decided to change that. I am making a commitment to record and upload one piece each week. By setting these weekly deadlines, I'm hoping to overcome my tendency towards procrastination and perfectionism.

I'm calling it the "Go Play Project 2012." Anyone care to join me?

    @Cis Minor: Thank you! I just heard this for the first time this week and fell in love with it. I can't believe the year is almost over. I missed a few weeks with family obligations but I'm trying to fit in as many recordings as I can before the new year. I started the first week of 2012 so I'd like to get to at least #50 before the new year.

    @Ellen Cunningham: I had been playing it much slower, but it didn't seem to "hang together"...maybe after it settles in a bit I'll be playing it slower. Thank you for listening!
