:) Playing the Sarabande from Bach’s French Suite no. 3 in C minor in my jury on Wednesday! It’s my favorite piece I’ve learned this semester.

This = my life right now. Pouring myself over music in the hopes that one day I’ll get better. 

Well, I’ve never fallen asleep on Bach’s Inventions before, but…something like that. :)

Another double-manual German harpsichord. Valued at $25k. I’ve been considering purchasing a harpsichord (though probably single-manual, and possibly Flemish) instead of upgrading my piano.
But still, my piano really does need an upgrade if I’m going to teach on it. It’s a 4’11” Yamaha—the smallest grand available. Honestly, I love it and am extremely grateful that my parents purchased it for my for my 16th birthday (as opposed to a car—duh!) But there’s a register in which it’s very weak due to the shortened string length. As a perfectionist, it bothers me.
It’ll be awhile until either purchase is made, so I have time to decide. The piano would probably be the best choice, but harpsichord is my favorite instrument, so that makes the decision difficult.
