A few days ago Vidas and I went to practice to our church for our upcoming "Maria Zart" recital. It was a weird feeling - we started making mistakes in places we don't normally do, especially when playing together.
You know - like the chord we hit not exactly on time.or slowing down at the end wasn't satisfying enough.
We realized that this was due to lack of our focus when playing. We were preoccupied with our worries of yesterday or the fears of tomorrow.
On our way back home from church it dawned on us that other organists might sometimes also have a difficult time focusing their minds which results in less than optimum performance, especially in public.
In order to help people who are in a similar situation, when we got home we created a course about Focusing at the Organ Bench which you can check out here (50 % discount is valid until January 25).
