#beginquote# ..Storm..? Huh..? A storm, ladies, is discovering the Board Of Studies (drumroll, please) Inspectors are coming the first day of next term, as we at the school I teach at discovered yesterday :P .. I think it comes back to too much form and not enough variety, Suzyq. The big trap with following a set course with a teacher is that suddenly the spark goes and the fun goes with it. Why not just go out and buy a sheet of music you really like, in a good key, not syncopated, without a lot of accidentals, and try to play it? Better still, tell your teacher you want to improvise, for a change. Good Heavens, the city you live in produced some of the greatest modern musicians who have ever lived, and most of them improvised a different version of a piece each time they played it..Gershwin, for example. Toonz says: ""Maybe go back and look at a piece from long ago that you were struggling with and thought you would NEVER get."" and that is a great idea, but I still think a bit more Suzyq and a lot less Teacher imput is the secret to break out of the slump. Good luck with it. #endquote#
