But when you look at the pictures of yourself taken a few years ago, then you really start to notice how your body changes over time. Try the same approach in organ practice - record yourself and listen to the recording after 6 months from now.
If you indeed are progressing, this recording will sound quite unsatisfying although you made your best effort at the time. That's the sign that today you can play much better than 6 months ago.
Also while we might be in awe with seemingly supernatural abilities of the virtuoso and master organists we admire so much, people around us might also view us with inspiration. Only you might not believe this might be happening with you.
Have you ever tried to demonstrate a few nice organ stops on your organ in church for your congregation members? Remember how their eyes started to shine? Remember tons questions they started to ask you? See - you might be an inspiration for them already.
Today's sight-reading piece is Duo II (p. 2) by Antonio de Cabezon (1510-1566), a blind Spanish Renaissance composer and organist. This nice little piece is in the mode of D with cadences in C (1-2-9), G (2-1-4), C (2-1-8) and D (2-2-10).
