Not Uncommon

Totally pointless blab...

Well.. just to let the non-existent visitors to my blog that I will be quite preoccupied with reading Nodame Cantabile manga. It's very addictive and I'm a manga slash anime addict. That means it's a double dose of addictive activity.

Later, I shall have to practice La Campanella. I haven't continued my practice on Liszt's La Campanella on the piano. So that means my fingers are going to have a hard time. Not to mention my wrists.

On the other hand, I transposed the manuscript from Anna Magdalena's Second Notebook as I had a hard time reading the top stave in anything other than treble clef.

At least, I've gotten better at following directions. I tend to be a compulsive player so getting my hands to cooperate my intentions to follow the musical directions is another accomplishment.

Above all, there is still the fact that I'd need to work on dexterity so as to facilitate a faster tempo in my piano playing. So, dexterity first, then gradually work on increasing velocity.

The Czerny School of Velocity might be able to help.

Provided that I don't get preoccupied with learning how to drive better.

Did I mention that I have switched jobs? My last day at the children's boutique was on the 31st of December 2008. I started tutoring 2 hours a day 4 times a week on the 1st of January 2009. So far, I haven't found reason to give up on the kids.

So that's it. Let me get back to my manga in peace and serenity.
