You mean if I ever found a paying job (i.e., it could earn my = living) as church organist, I would STILL have to practice?

(back) Subject: back to Randy and Bruce... practicing From: "Wayne Grauel" <wgvideo@attglobal.net> Date: Sun, 22 Apr 2001 08:55:36 -0400   Randy, and Bruce... you're right, email is tough to get across and I probably didn't express myself as i should.   Fortunately, for me, I can go for a long time, sit down for an hour or two and have it back, but that's just me. Just like Basketball where you have the big stars who can go on a court and do it blindfolded, the average person out shooting some hoops will never have that level of skill, or singers, some will never make it to the Met, but that doesn't diminish the sheer joy of one's avocation, and relative skill level, or enjoyment, be it basketball, singing, or playing the organ. You and Bruce came back with some good final notes on the subject and expressed my feelings precisely. Just with my abilities, I could never keep up with this country's top known organists unless I practiced every day, and then I still may not make the grade, who knows, I've never applied the effort to go that far so I'll never know. There is a lot to be said for an empty room with nobody home though!   Maybe I should have gone back through the digest and seen where this whole thread started because I probably came in out from left field somewhere. I too get the greatest enjoyment out of playing the heck out of a service and I'm quite good at it including improvisations, but put me in a concert situation... no thanks!   So, I didn't mean to offend anyone so to anyone that I came across as a condescending asshole, I apologize That's not what music is all about. In fact it was really late when i logged on and I think i fell asleep at the keyboard before my post was finished so I hope it even made sense.   thanks for your additional comments, both of you and i say Ditto! It's too bad we can't get this into a web forum where the threads stay together... but oh well   Wayne Grauel

(back) Subject: why I don't practice From: <quilisma@socal.rr.com> Date: Sun, 22 Apr 2001 06:54:34 -0700   Yesterday was typical ... I've been in bed with pneumonia all week, but I HAD to go down to church yesterday to change the choirbooks over to Eastertide format (different Mass, different doxology, different Amen, take out the Pre-Lent/Lent/Passiontide propers and put in the Eastertide propers, etc. etc. etc.) ... Easter Day has its own bound book.   When I arrived, I discovered that the Evangelism committee hadn't returned the chairs to the choir room after the Easter dinner on Friday night. At 6 p.m. on a Saturday, there was no one else to do it (and no time to get someone to do it on Sunday morning), so I did it. After doing that and the notebooks, I was too tired to practice, so I came home.   I'll sight-read something this morning.   And so it goes ...   My interest in SERVICE-PLAYING has increased a LITTLE bit with the arrival of the used Allen ... at least there are some different sounds to be had ... but it's still the same dead room, and there's still only time for MAYBE a five-minute voluntary before Mass. The level of the chatter AFTER Mass has reached the point that I'm about to give up voluntaries altogether in favor of a sixteen-bar improvisation on the recessional hymn and call it done.   Cheers,   Bud

From: "Ken McNamara" <conmara@grandcanyonhiker.com> Date: Sun, 22 Apr 2001 09:17:24 -0500     Quoting from: http://www.oconnormusic.org/pianos.htm   Today Paderewski is often recalled not for his music but for his famous epigram about diligence: "If I don't practice for one day, I know it; if I don't practice for two days, the critics know it; if I don't practice for three days, the audience knows it."   KenMc

Likewise for the concert violinist, cellist, etc.   The typical member of a symphony orchestra --- between time practicing at home and time spent in rehearsal with the orchestra itself --- can expect = to spend an equivalent amount of time practicing, if not more.   The late and great English pianist Clifford Curzon was quoted as saying he =   practiced 12 hours a day! (I assume he took Vitamin A, for his = fingernails!)   Exceptions like Walter Gieseking (he of the phenomenal memory) simply = prove the rule.   Now, what about organists? How much do they practice? And how much = should they practice?   I believe it was Lynwood Farnum who said that an organist should practice = at least 5 hours a day. Would that this were always possible!   Organists who hold church positions should be able to do so, were it not = for the fact that most of them (in the U.S. and other Anglo-Saxon countries) = are required to spend much of their time directing choirs and preparing for = choir rehearsals. And, in some churches, practice time on the organ is not encouraged (or even allowed) while the church is open for prayer. (Presumably, most of those doing the praying are praying for themselves, = and not for the organist, or the music program!)   Others, who do not hold church positions, or who are still students, will find it even more difficult to practice the organ. As has been pointed = out by others here, mere access to the organ is jealously guarded in most churches. In most cases, those wishing to use the organ must pay a fee to =   the church for the purpose, often considerable. And Heaven help the practicing organist who overstays the allotted time by so much as 10 = minutes! Be assured that the church secretary will be firing off a complaint to = the resident organist, who will then be expected to banish the miscreant.   It's also a fact that resident organists, themselves, jealously guard = access to "their" organs, and are loathe to grant practice privileges to other organists (except for their own students). Especially if that other = organist is perceived as a "threat"!   Under such circumstances, it is difficult to build up any extensive repertory. Indeed, it is difficult to generate interest (among young = people) for an instrument on which so many restrictions are placed, with regard to =   access and use. Most young people interested in good music will --- and = do --- turn to other instruments. Which, in most cases, will provide them = with a much better income, should they go into music professionally.   Note: Out colleague Scott Foppiano is giving a recital this afternoon, 5 p.m., at St. Thomas Episcopal Church, Fifth Avenue, New York City. Ages = ago, I studied at that church, with the late William Self; but I seldom go = there nowadays. But I'll make an exception for this afternoon.   To give you some idea of the ambiance of that church: some 20 years ago, = the rector of that church was offered the position of Episcopal Bishop of Washington, DC. He turned it down, on the grounds that he was "so comfortable" where he was. (Luxurious Park Avenue apartment; big salary; all sorts of perquisites.)
