Making the time in my daily schedule and committing to learn new pieces had always been a struggle. So, in April 2015, I decided to make a change. I started small, with just 5 minutes a day, 20 days a month spent on sight reading a new piece.
My first piece was a Bach 2 part invention – just a few bars on day 1, and I kept adding 1 or 2 more bars each day. I started out recording the results each day, so I could see progress, however small, and feel a little motivated to continue.
I also decided that I would record that first rough run-through of each piece, the first time I could play it completely, upload it, and post a link online.
My goals were small – to learn one piece a month and keep in touch with the pieces I had learned earlier.
