So do you play the piano when not feeling well?
« on: December 25, 2012, 06:46:16 PM »
So far I have to perfect my prelude and beginning to learn the harry potter hedwig theme, but feeling a bit feverish today. Dizzy, bit sore throat and my body is weird at the moment. Don't feel like myself.

Not feeling like practising at all today.

Do you have such days when sick?

I play when I'm sick. It just gives me something to distract me from my illness.
Beethoven: Sonatas Op. 53, 101
Schumann: Kreisleriana
Alkan: Festin d'Esope
Liszt: Apres une lecture de Dante, Paganini Etude 1

To-do list:
Mendelssohn: Sonata Op. 106

If I am well enough to sit down, I'll play. But if I have a headache or fever I can't... But I am almost never sick with fever anymore, so I don't remember the last time I didn't play because of that.

I have missed some days completely lately because I have been so dead tired after overly long days at work. That always makes me feel guilty, but I also know that I gain very little from practicing at that condition.

For me, playing when I am sick just results in highly unfocused practicing. I play the notes, but my mind isn't in the music, and I usually don't gain anything constructive afterwards.

Hmm...  Not on the list of usual weaknesses

I have a cold today. My head hurts and there is mucous all over my throat. I hope it gets better soon. But I have been playing piano. It doesn't sound good, but it's something.
