As I'm writing this, my eyes, head, legs, and back are heavy from a long day's work - having taught at school from 10 AM until 3 PM, I played my improvisation recital for Saint Cecilia Day at 6 PM (will post a video of it soon).
I don't feel like writing. I want to go to sleep. I have a hundred reasons not to do it tonight.
And yet, I know, you guys are counting on me to give you some words of advice today before you hit the bead.
Here are they:
If you are feeling spent and haven't done your organ practice today, do it. Find someone who can hold you accountable and do it. At least for 15 minutes.
You will become a different person, if you insist on this perseverance.
You will turn pro.

Don't have an organ at home?
