This is my way of keeping my daily practice speed with the piano. I don't like putting the speed on paper and I don't like to put it on a Word document, just in case the computer crash. I decided to put it here.

I was playing 65 bpm with the piano and guitar, but then 65 bpm was too fast on the piano. What I do when the speed is too fast is turning it down a notch. I slowed it down to 55 bpm. Now 55 bpm has gotten a bit slower.

I usually practice sixteenth notes on all the Major Scales, Minor Scales = Harmonic and Melodic and I practice triplets on all the major and minor triads.

I'd suggest using something like Google docs, Evernote, etc. for your personal diary/notes, rather than a forum intended for open discussion.

Evernote is good, but not a lot of people at ibreathe responds to my threads anyways. Lots of people respond to me at music banter, but they don't take me seriously. So I decided to put it here.

October 1, 2014 - I practiced 59 bpm today. wow! I haven't practiced for a month. The only time I can practice is 3am in the morning, because I'm going to University now. I tried to wake up early, but I end up going to sleep. I'm a sleep lover. Although, I was able to practice today, because I am able to manage my busy schedule. I miss practicing so much.

November 10, 2014 - I practiced 64 bpm today. I woke up at 3 am as well.:D Yaah, I went back to sleep at 4am, but hopefully I will get used to waking up that early.

Just to let you guys know, I played some of the scales hands separately. 65 bpm is my brickwall, if I can get to at least 66, then I'll slow it down again until I get used to the speed that fast.

November 27, 2014 - I practiced 66 bpm today. I slept at 7:30 pm yesterday, because I ate cookies with sleeping pills in it. I woke up at 2:47 am and I wasn't sleepy. I tried to go back to sleep, but I couldn't so I said to myself, "Let's practice!":D

February 20, 2015 - I practiced 65 bpm on scales. I gave up on Reverie by Debussy, because there was a section where it was extremely difficult. I can play that section over and over again until I get it right, but I am practicing Claire De Lune by Debussy, a Beethoven piece and How do I live arranged by Dan Coates.
