Keep It Playful: Robert Schumann said that the word play is beautiful because we play our instruments. Play involves a particular mindset: enjoyment, a degree of working toward improvement, games, and going at a pace that allows you to play forever. As a musician, living this way prepares you for the joy of playing music for others.
I wanted to start this blog to focus on long-term practice, especially of music. I have written many things over the years, and these will appear here. Other concepts from multiple sources will also appear.
You began music or any other practice because you loved it. You want to love it and keep doing it forever. This is possible if you always follow Schumann's mindset of Keeping It Playful.
