Inspiration is on the way!
Sometimes at the end of the semester, it’s difficult to find the energy to practice. Who wants to learn notes, words, and fingerings after being sleep-deprived for so long? Besides, didn’t we all just learn a ton of music?
Does this sound familiar? I have felt this way many times.
Being consistent about practicing has its good points, though. For one thing, it’s so hard to start over from nothing.
Hence the following.
~ Winston Churchill
When Winston Churchill was asked to cut arts funding in favour of the war effort, he simply replied “then what are we fighting for?”
~ Martha Graham
“We learn by practice. Whether it means to learn to dance by practicing dancing or to learn to live by practicing living, the principles are the same. One becomes in some area an athlete of God.”
“Practice means to perform, over and over again in the face of all obstacles, some act of vision, of faith, of desire. Practice is a means of inviting the perfection desired.”
~ Albert Einstein“Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new.”
“Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere.”
~ Beverly Sills

“There are no shortcuts to any place worth going.”
“You may be disappointed if you fail, but you are doomed if you don’t try.”
~ B.B. King
“There are so many sounds I still want to make, so many things I haven’t yet done.”
Or we could all try this!
~ Artur Schnabel
“When a piece gets difficult, make faces.”
(My personal favorite!)
