  • First Entry

    First Entry
    First Entry!!! Today I practiced 22m 51s but I had lots of Extra time so I still have to get used to finding time to practice when I have activities and homework. I am playing 5 peices Breakaway, Here Comes The Sun, Scherzo, German Dance, and The Park which is a beautiful piece which I started yesterday. I am also trying to memorize my scherzo for next week. I took this photo myself. Thanks!
  • Busy Day!

    Busy Day!
    Today, I only practiced for about 10 minutes which is under my goal. I have decided that on days when I have activities outside of school I'll practice in the morning so I can meet my goal more easily. Luckily, I played Breakaway without any mistakes which means it is definately going to be ready for my recital :)
  • Saturday and Sunday

    Saturday and Sunday
    Together in these two busy days I did 25:23 on the piano. The sun run was on Sunday, this event only happens once a year so this will not effect the time I practice in the future. I also took this picture while practicing.
  • Morning Practice

    Morning Practice
    Today, I tested out how practicing in the morning would help me with my goal. I got in 21:37 minutes of practice this morning. This strategy proved very helpful which also means that I can fit 10 minutes in the evening and 20 in the morning to get my 30 minutes a day! HALLELUJAH :)
  • Piano Lessons

    Today we had our piano lessons and I got to fit in 21 minutes of practice this morning.Since our friend Neve who does piano with us didn't come today I got to have a longer lesson 45 minutes.
  • Pro-D

    Today after Rock Climbing I got 23:09 but I still need to get used to trying to get to 30 minutes. I also fit in antother 11:52 in the late morning since it was a Pro-D day.
  • 3 days combined

    Today we left early for the Cabin, Luckily we have an electric Keyboard up there but it is difficult to play on, in total in the weekend (Friday, Saturday, and Sunday) I got a time of 1 hour and 14 minutes
  • Last day before back to school

    Today I got a practice time of 24:13
  • My New plan

    My New plan
    Today is piano so I got some practice in the morning and I got some in the afternoon because of my lesson in all I got 47:28. My New Plan: so I figured if I can practice 15-20 minutes in the morning then the moment I get home I can practice another 10-15 minutes which would get me to 30 minutes a day. On thursdays I would have to find a different time to do extra practice because of climbing, though.
  • Solution for tomorrow

    Solution for tomorrow
    Wednesday is the easiest day to practice because I have nothing after school so I can practice for a long time in the afternoon. I decide that before school on Thursdays I can try to keep 20 minutes of practice in the morning and then 10 minutes before I go to bed so I get the full 30 minutes I think this sounds good but I'll have to think more to plan if I have to change my goal from 30 minutes to maybe 25
  • Slight change

    Slight change
    Today I reached 27 minutes of practice but I don't know if I can keep a steady so I have decided to make my goal 25-30 so I have a more open range. This makes much more sense to me.
  • Keeping Focused

    I have decided that I haven't been focused enough on my goal and on my piano so today I decided that I would spend more time trying to complete my goal. Today I practiced a total time of 27:38 which is in my time limit.
  • Piano Lesson

    Piano Lesson
    Today I had my piano lesson. I played a total time of about 30 minutes. My Teacher said I played well but I need to work on reaching the different scales on my peice 'the park'.
  • Star Wars Day! (but also a day for practicing piano)

    Star Wars Day! (but also a day for practicing piano)
    Today, I played piano in the morning and played for 25'14. so it was just over my goal. And May the 4th be with you!
  • SUPER BUSY DAY!!!

    SUPER BUSY DAY!!!
    Today, I was very worried I would not get enough time for my goal on the piano because I was very busy. I have school, then climbing, then elementary night of bands and we won't be back till quarter past 9. But Luckily in the morning and before I went to climbing I was able to have some time for practice so I practiced for 27'21 So now I know I can complete my goal on Thursdays. And this picture is my piano.
  • Tomorrow is mothers day

    Today I had to do some things for mothers day but I got a practice time of 23'14.

  • One Problem

    One Problem
    I just figured out that when I go up to my cabin (picture) like I will be doing in about a week or so, I won't be able to practice my music!! Luckily we have a keyboard up there but its not very good and hard to practice with. I've decided that using the keyboard is the only option though so I'll have to deal with it :(
  • Concert with Emily

    Tonight we're going to a concert with Emily, so I didn't get much time to practice. Luckily this morning I got 18'21 before we went to school.
  • Forgot!!!
