DD is transposing on the fly from uptempo Broadway showtunes as she "practices" the piano. Today we're going from major keys to minor and adding a little jazz on the side. Because "everything is better with swing. EVERYTHING."

I beg to differ when it comes to Bartok. Sorry kid, but that just sounds like... well, the audio equivalent of taking a Renaissance painting and running it through the "cubist" and "surrealist" filter.

Pretty sure that this is doing nothing to improve the neither the Chabrier nor the Scott Joplin work that she is (theoretically) working on. Oh well. It's improving theoretical knowledge and technique either way, right? (Somehow this actually seems to work for her, as bizarre as it sounds-- it doesn't matter WHAT she plays, as long as she practices mindfully at SOMETHING for 20-40 minutes a day, seemingly.)

Hey-- it beats tangling with her over practice time, anyway. wink
