New Piano! Day 22.

Like Bill Murray in Groundhog Day, I’m still working on the same piece, a dumbed-down version of Beethoven’s Für Elise, three weeks into piano-ownership. It’s not the only thing I’m working on, but it’s the one consistent piece I play every time I practice.

I don’t know if I’m getting any better, but I’m definitely getting faster. On Day 2, it took me 3:46 to play it; on Day 10, 2:12. Tonight, I finished the piece in 1:49. I’ve reached the point of diminishing returns when it comes to improving my speed, although I’ve also fixed that errant D-natural from the last play-through.  Here’s the video:

  1. You know, Tom learned to play the piano in one day on Tom and Jerry. :)

    I can’t play anything, so I shouldn’t be talking.

  2. Jerry was the Fred Astaire of rodents.

  3. I always liked Tom best. That mouse could be a real stinker at times.
