Your piano goals for 2016
« on: January 01, 2016, 02:32:43 AM »
What are your piano goals for 2016?

Mine: to learn some Scott Joplin, and some more Bach, Scarlatti, and Chopin.  Many of the pieces I choose to play are somewhat dark and in a minor key.  Scott Joplin's music may balance that out.  And his music is fun to play!

From last year http://www.pianostreet.com/smf/index.php?topic=57021.0

Another goal: to post at least one piece to the audition room again this year.

To play a Scarlatti sonata to utmost perfection ;)

Oh, and get that grand of course!

Damn, I didn't reach either of those...so I'll just have to stick with them for yet another year...

Generally speaking, to record much more improvisation than I did in 2015, and to widen its expressive range with the invention of new playing forms and new means of idea generation. In other words, much the same objectives I have always had, to create as much as possible of permanent value to myself before my technique sucks the kumara. All things considered, I haven't done too badly to date, and keeping fit and healthy is certainly part of the answer, but I have many musical peccadilloes in the form of lazy working habits.

All very general really, nothing too specific.
