I have spent so much time at my piano lately!! But, it's a very good thing. Preparing for a Senior Recital is unlike anything I have ever done before! It is one of the most strenuous mental things I have ever done, but also one of the best.
The mind is really an amazing thing. I have gone back and pulled out pieces that I haven't played since the start of high school, and within a very short time, I am able to remember them. It's kind of like trying to speak a language you once knew, but haven't used in a while...words (or in this case, notes) start coming back to you.
I am only about 3 weeks away from giving my first real "concert"....about an hour's worth of music. All memorized. All perfected. And totally terrifying!! But I'm very excited too.
I get to play my most favorite pieces I've learned to date, without worrying about a judge (like at a competition).
So I'm very excited.
But for some reason, when I think about it, my fingers start shaking......
