What piano teachers and karate teachers have in common

It's funny. As I was listening to my piano teacher, Elliot, talking to me today I kept hearing Sensei. When he said "I'd rather you played it slowly and got it right, then speed it up" I could almost have been in the dojo.

I was just saying to Bethlet that I'm having to get comfortable with that noob feeling all over again. Like when I started karate and felt like I had two left feet. It's the same uncomfortable sensation. I think maybe that's a good thing. To keep going through that.

Elliot says there is hope for me... with a lot of hard practice ;-)

I have to say that the feeling when I played a bar and knew I'd got the timing right and it sounded right was very good.
