Book Club Mom on YouTube – Why do we have to be so PERFECT?

Hi Everyone,

I’m on YouTube today, asking the question, “Why do we have to be so perfect?”

…and I’m also playing some imperfect piano for you. Here we go!

Thanks for visiting – come back soon!

  1. Wow! That was lovely. If you made any mistakes I certainly couldn’t tell. Thanks for sharing. You are a woman of many talents.

    1. Oh thank you, Darlene – there were a few and I played the last section too fast, but otherwise I was happy. I really appreciate your support ๐Ÿค—

  2. You played beautifully, but just as with the characters in the books I read, I want to know how you felt about it. And did this action pivot your life in some way? What did you learn from this experience? I need a satisfying ending to this story. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. I recognized this piece from having tried to play it, but you’ve done an amazing job on it. That was really enjoyable. I think it takes a special talent to continue playing if your fingers slip and hit a sour note. Stopping to unhear the mistake never works, and you played through very well. I loved it.

    1. Oh thank you so much Anneli! It’s interesting because my piano book says this is a Level II piece, but I found it more and more challenging, the more I practiced. The notes were easy enough to figure out, but the tempo and nuances were harder! Thank you so much for watching ๐Ÿค—

  4. You did more than 99.9 things right playing this. If you made even one slip, I didn’t hear it. Your attitude reminds me of this quote from Henry Ford I read this morning: “”Whether you think you can or whether you think you can’t, you are probably right.”

    My husband made me a YouTube promo with a hot air balloon for memoir launch day next week! It’s perfect. Why? I didn’t have to mess with the technicalities. HaHa!

    1. Hi Marian – thanks for your words of support and that’s a good quote! And yes, messing with technicalities is no fun! Thank you for stopping by and good luck with your launch ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. it was wonderful and I wouldn’t have known the difference. I so admire anyone that can put themselves out there to share with others, imperfect as we all are

      1. Thank you, Robbie. You have to keep moving forward – I play it perfectly about 50% of the time. Now I’m going on to other pieces that are in the works. Thanks for the visit!

      1. The temperature has dropped again, so no melting, but itโ€™s relatively a lot warmer than last month, even. However, Iโ€™m going home for two weeks of leave on Saturday and there the weather is beautifully spring! Thanks for asking. ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. Beautiful Barbara you are brave to record and share yourself playing the piano. I find playing the piano for others makes me nervous and I make mistakes. My piano teacher encourages me to play for an audience so when I play in front of an audience I can become more confident. Keep those fingers tingling the ivories.

    1. Hi Grace – your teacher is right. It’s good practice. Stay tuned for more imperfect piano and thank you so much for stopping by. Hope you are doing well and that you are enjoying your lessons ๐Ÿ™‚
