I don’t normally suffer with the hump day blues, in fact I usually look forward to my mid week break before all my crazy activities start again. Although it’s not really a break, it’s more of a clear up and preparation mission in readiness for the second half of the week!
I often think, if someone were to take music away from me, I don’t know what I would do…maybe I would take up knitting?? Anyway, I tried to make good on yesterday’s Hump Day Resolution…it partly went to plan but I have to say that I did learn (after nearly 20 years) the importance of scales. I hated scales as a teenager. Thought they were pointless. Today I learnt that just my knowing my Piano scales I worked out (without really noticing) the fingering for a section of music and I do think it was down to scales…ever so slightly beginning to love scales!
Motivation, I think, is still my problem. I want to be a higher level musician now, without putting in the blood, sweat and tears…but deep down I know what needs to be done and I have to keep going; like Nemo’s dad said…”Just keep swimming…just keep swimming”!!
