Supporting another part of my musical passion – here’s an online (YT) example of a typical way in which pianists sit upright (not slouching).
See, this is what I’m talking about, kids on Youtube playing my repertoire. I’ll play this with more expression, but geez, so depressing. What was I doing at 13 that was more worthwhile than this?
Also, I can play about the first minute nearly up-to-speed. It’s been a week and this pieces is three minutes, so…I should be able to start memorizing in two weeks? Hell yes.
