So, yesterday you've started practicing organ playing the right way.
How does it feel?
Are you optimistic about it? Can you see yourself practicing like this a week, a month, a year from now?
Or is it a huge internal struggle for you?
My guess is that your initial enthusiasm has gone out and you're faced with the harsh reality of slow, persistent, and regular practice.
And it doesn't feel so easy, does it?
One part of you wants to stop, to drop everything, and continue doing what you were doing before.
Don't think about the future.
It hasn't happened yet.
Moreover, your progress seems slow at first, but I can assure you, it's never always linear.
Progress comes also in leaps.
Your first leap might not be far away.
Don't stop now.

Don't have an organ at home?
Download paper manuals and pedals, print them out, cut the white spaces, tape the sheets together and you'll be ready to practice anywhere where is a desk and floor. Make sure you have a higher chair.
