🎹 Learn Inspiration Sheet Music on Piano

📅 Practicing

  • Stretch and warm-up every time you play.
  • Touch the keys with fingertips not with whole finger pulps (cut nails short).
  • Practice no more than three repetitions in a row (otherwise you lose focus.)

🏁 Motivation

  • Set a goal — an accessible goal (eg. to post a video of your performance on YouTube in one week, play on your relative’s birthday in a month, etc. ) It will keep you motivated and concentrated. Perform and post even if you aren’t satisfied with the result. Shame is a driver, too!
  • Record yourself on a dictaphone, listen to the record on the next day, and write down on the printed score what mistakes you want to improve (the left hand is too loud, the beats aren’t accentuated).
  • Micropractice on days when you don’t want to play piano but press yourselves into it. Play only the most complicated moments and then stop. It will take only a few minutes and be far more productive than playing a session without focus.

𝄞 Melody

  • The right hand plays a melody. The melody should shine out above the accompaniment of the left hand and leave a lasting impression.
  • Add fingering in dense places (on printed pages or use a “comment” feature in your pdf-viewer.) Aim for less change of hand position. 5-4-3-2-1 is better than 4-3-2-1-2. Play all notes within a phare together simultaneously — you will understand the comfortable fingering.
  • Count out loud. The truth is that listeners are far less concerned about wrong notes than an inconsistent pulse, a lack of rhythmic control or a sense of rhythmic instability.
    Put the metronome at 50 beats per minute. Then 52. Then 54, etc. until you reach the original tempo.
  • Focus on differences in touch and attack: articulation (legato vs. staccato) and dynamics (loud vs. quiet). Vary them throughout the piece. Manually put down piano/forte (𝓟 🙵 𝓕), crescendo/diminuendo (), legato/staccato markings with a highlighter.
  • Mark phrases with a highlighter in a bubble. Play the first half of any phrase louder than the last half. Accentuate the highest-pitched note of a phrase.
  • Wherever you see a slur (♩⁀♪), play the second slurred note very quietly.

𝄢 Accompaniment

  • The left hand plays an accompaniment and is always softer than the right hand and has no phrasing, so give every first beat of every measure an accent.
  • Keep the upper notes (played by the thumb) lighter and the lower notes (played by the pinky) louder. The thumb uses the least weight.
  • Put fingers close to the black keys.
  • If you feel fatigue in the left hand, modify the score:
    • leave out notes,
    • transfer the top notes to your right hand,
    • arpeggiate or break the chord in an upward pattern.
  • Rotate the wrist, elbow, and forearm.

🅿 Pedal

Pedal as little as possible to push the melody forward. Like fingering, pedaling marks should be added personally to suit your

  • palm (small palms need help of the pedal to connect large intervals),
  • piano (smaller or digital pianos are forgiving to over-pedaling),
  • room size (an open space needs more pedaling).

Pedal twice per measure or more. Delay pedal pressing for milliseconds to weaken the resonance. Remove the pedal wherever you see a rest symbol.


🧠 How to Memorize Sheet Music

Worry less that you can’t learn scores — the best pianists in the world learn their concert pieces for no less than two years prior to the first performance. Learning more pieces makes it easier to memorize a single one. I post a score every other day, so sight-read a new song everyday to develop memory.

Learn chord symbols — usually in the left hand are only several chords in a progression, so it is easier to remember. To learn the progression

  • sing root
    notes (the first letter of a chord symbol) as a melody,
  • create a word made of the first letters of the chord progression.

Understand the structure of ‘Inspiration’: parts are separated by a double bar line (‖). Work on the hardest parts more than on the easiest.

From the very first time, try to recall or play by ear a part after you played it, part by part.

Inspiration Starts With a Blank Sheet of Paper

A few weeks ago, I came across a post on LinkedIn describing an exercise with a blank sheet of paper geared toward revealing possibilities and helping a person step outside the limitations of schedules, journals, and records of a “previous self.

The author, Lynn Hidy of UpYourTeleSales, suggested that writing, drawing, scribbling, listing, narrating, or whatever else we do on a clean sheet of paper can help clarify our options as the “deciders” along our own paths.

I suppose this is paper as the psilocybin to the self-narratives and self-models of my project management and calendar software. In this case, I gave into curiosity and decided to experiment with the blank sheet.

What happened?

I saw a tree. And the tree was me. But also you. And no one in particular. The end. But also the beginning.

OK, it didn’t quite go down like that.

When I released myself to the paper, I sketched out a web of tasks linked to the results and events they would produce and encourage. I noted which tasks were dependent upon others. I basically wrote and drew what I would type into Asana later that day.

I know what you’re thinking: “he should have taken the psilocybin instead.

While I did not distance myself from my responsibilities and processes while scribbling, I was reminded of the pleasure of scribbling itself. The boring web of work and wants I wove seemed pretty, infused with personal graphic flair my dashboards lack.

In that instance, I wasn’t quite the standard bearer for the power of creative expression on paper, but my experience was sailing towards that shore.

The second time I gave myself to a blank sheet, I sketched a character I had created when I was a kid and had not drawn in years. Maybe next time I really will see that tree who is me. Which would be frightening. Probably.

It made sense to me that I would discover pleasure in the exercise. After all, I had previously learned to luxuriate in printed books after living by digital alone for a time.

The clean sheet, and my recent experience using a paper notebook while taking a course at the Haitian Embassy, has me thinking about ways to reintroduce writing on paper into my professional life. Before I started taking handwritten notes on my tablet, I used to fill stacks of notebooks across my home office and jobs. While writing to screens has been my approach for several years, I seem to be trending towards using a hybrid approach to notetaking where subjects and circumstances will determine my medium.

And now, before I release you back into the Printerverse, I will commune with the clean sheet again. Possibilities. Clarity. Wait, there is a message for you: it asks you to honor me with paper samples and complimentary notebooks when you see me at Print 17 next month.

The clean sheet knows.

Step 14: Create Sales Sheets

Once you’ve decided that you want to send your game to a publisher then the next step would be to create what we call a Sales Sheet.  A Sales Sheet is a one-page document that gives a quick overview of your game to a potential publisher. To some this might seem superfluous, but to us, we credit a lot of our success to having these Sales Sheets ready.

Showing a clean looking Sales Sheet to a publisher immediately tells them that you are professional and you know what you’re doing.  When I attend board game conventions and approach a publisher’s booth to ask them if they are accepting submissions, I often get an ‘eyes-rolling’ kind of vibe as they begrudgingly say “ok sure.”  Then when I pull out my Sales Sheets, I can actually see a visible change in attitude as they immediately realize that they’re dealing with someone who’s serious about game design and not someone who has designed the next Monopoly clone.

A Sales Sheet needs to include the following things:

  1. Title of game – preferably with a mock up logo
  2. Suggested age range
  3. Number of players
  4. Length of time to play the game
  5. Quick overview of the game
  6. Category that the game fits into
  7. List of contents
  8. Images of the game
  9. Sample of one turn or round of play
  10. Some reasons on why this game will sell
  11. Your contact info!

Here’s an example of one of our Sales Sheets for our game Jungle Jam (which has since been retitled to Jam Slam, but we haven’t updated our Sales Sheet yet!).

Our newer Sales Sheets have a lot less text, but this one had all the major points on it that I wanted to cover.  See bottom of post for an example.

Let’s take a closer look at each of these.

1. The logo might seem challenging to you if you don’t have artistic skills, but you really don’t need a lot of skills to create a logo.  Google ‘how to make a logo’ and you’ll find a bunch of resources to help you.  The main key is that your logo should have the same energy that you want your game to have.  If your game is a quick reaction game then your logo needs to be playful and punchy; but if your game is a serious game about trading antiques then an old fashioned feel is obviously better.

2-4. The next three can be combined into a graphic similar to what we see on published board games.  If there are ways to remove or reduce text on this page, then do it!

5. The quick overview gives the publisher an understanding of what the game is all about and should not take longer than 15 seconds to read.   So keep it short and concise.  It will take a lot of copy editing to come up with the most colourful yet efficient ways to get your message across!  Get your English Major friends to help you with this one.  Here’s an example of an overview for our game, Junkyard:

“The Junkyard is the frantic and fun-filled stacking game where junk piles rise high but tensions rise even higher. Each player builds their own junk pile out of oddly shaped blocks that their opponent’s have challenged them to use.  Should you place that piece to make your junk pile more stable or make it taller? While a stable structure will keep you in the game longer, it’s the tallest junk pile that wins!”

6. The publisher should already know what kind of game it is, but most games have subsets of categories that it could belong to.  Our upcoming game, Belfort is a Resource Management game, but it also has Worker Placement, Area Majority and Building as subset categories.  It’s beneficial for a publisher to know which categories your game fits into as they could be looking for an Area Majority game.   Conversely they could be full up on Area Majority games and will want to pass on your game – but it’s better to know that sooner rather than later anyway.

7. A publisher is always looking at the bottom line so a list of contents will help them understand if it’s a game they can make with a profit or not. Hopefully your game is as lean and clean as possible so you don’t scare off any publishers with a ginormous list of contents.

8. If you can include actual photographs of your game instead of just computer based samples, then it will go a long way to show the publisher that there is a full prototype ready to go.  Just like when we look at a game we might want to buy from a game store, the image on the Sales Sheet would be better if it shows the game in progress.

9. It’s even better if you can use this image to show an example of one round of play.  This part can be challenging because think about what everyone’s least favourite part of playing board games is…it’s reading the rules.   So don’t just put a rules summary in your sales sheet.  The publisher doesn’t need to understand why Player A did what they did – the publisher just needs to know how some of the mechanics work together.  Here are a couple examples.

10. The last part is your chance to let the publisher know why your game is worth publishing.  It’s important to keep to facts here instead of telling them how much fun your playtesters have with your game.  Some examples of what you should talk about here:

  • If your theme is interesting or hot in the market then list that
  • if your game has a new mechanic that’s never been seen before
  • If your game has variants or expansion possibilities
  • If your game could be licensed to popular characters
  • If you are open to re-theming your game entirely (instead of wizards collecting dragon eggs, it’s a bunch of Igors collecting body parts!)
  • If it’s a kid’s game then list any educational impact
  • If you can find any sales stats that support why your game will do well, then that’s perfect!

[EDIT BY SEN FEB 4, 2015 – in discussing this with James Mathe of Minion Games, he finds this offputting; I’ve also heard that from one other publisher.  They find it presumptuous that designers would tell publishers what would sell.  While I still think it’s good for you to *think* about the above points and perhaps be able to discuss them, it may be best to leave them off lest you offend the publisher you’re trying to sell your game to.  This also clears up a poop-load of space from your sell sheet.  Don’t be in a huge rush to fill it up, though – remember that white space increases readability and walls of text are an instant turn off!  Feedback works!  See?]

11. Obviously don’t forget to put your contact info on it!

Once complete you are now ready to approach publishers.  We’ve found that whether we’re approaching a publisher in person or via email, we’ve used our sales sheets almost every time.  In an upcoming post we’ll talk about the importance of conventions and how these Sales Sheets are invaluable to us as designers.

Here’s an example of a newer Sales Sheet that is more show and less tell.  It works well for this kind of family game and this was what was used to show to Mattel and Hasbro.

-Jay Cormier

Not much more to say except treat your sales sheets like your “business cards with a bang”. You want something to leave people with that says more than just your name/contact info/website. You want to leave them with the impression that you are professional, that you’ve got a prototype ready to play at the drop of a hat, and that you’ve put a lot of thought into the product you’re pitching. Short of giving the publisher a working prototype, you want them to be able to get the gist of your game – the general rules, the look and feel, the target demographic – with as little effort on their part. The less amount of time they have to spend scouring the internet, calling you, chasing you down the better for you.

The sell sheet is your foot in the door when your foot isn’t even nearby. Publishers will take the countless sell sheets they’ve picked up from a convention and sift through them, hoping to chance upon the next SdJ. Make sure your game is poised to be picked up by making a sell sheet that helps them remember everything pertinent about your game without overloading them. Give them confidence in your product by creating a well-presented, succinctly worded sell sheet.

The time spent making the sell sheet and handing it out will pay dividends if it’s done right.

Brooke Shields’ sheet mask is the self-care inspiration we need

2020 has been a stressful year, and with that stress comes an added need for a little extra self-care. If you’ve been dealing maskne, fine lines or dry skin it might be time to take a page from Brooke Shields’ skin care playbook!

We were so excited to see that Shields found the perfect way to unwind and decompress while taking care of her skin.

We’ve all gotten used to wearing face masks every day, but what about sheet masks? In a recent Instagram post, Shields shared a photo of her using an unusual, yet intriguing hydration mask with the caption, “Face masks make Mondays more fun.

The 55-year-old actress has incredible skin, so any skin care advice she has to offer we are more than willing to take in, especially when it’s a product as fun and pretty as this one!

Masks can work wonders for your skin, each one targeting a different concern with the help of essential ingredients. This one works to hydrate and re-energize your skin using hyaluronic acid, green tea, and caffeine.

Glamglow Glowlace Radiance Boosting Hydration Sheet Mask

In addition to providing your skin with that much-needed hydration boost, the mask is also formulated to plump fine lines and boost your skin’s glow, giving it an overall healthier look. The mask is made for people with all skin types, making it the ideal gift of self-care pick-me-up.

Of course, the mask is more aesthetically pleasing than your everyday plain sheet mask, and its silver embellishments can add an element of fun to your skin care regimen.

The mask has a 4.2-star rating on Amazon, and reviewers are impressed by the effects of the mask.

“There was definitely a glow after using this mask,” one reviewer wrote. “The skin felt soft and smooth. Just 15-20 mins and you have a glowing face.”

Another reviewer commented on the way the mask made their face feel, writing, “my skin felt amazing after. Highly recommend and will definitely purchase again.”

A sheet mask can have a real impact on your skin, and this celebrity-approved product is no exception!

Organized Charm: Inspiration Board Cheat Sheet

Inspiration Boards are one of my favorite things to check out on Pinterest! They are just one of those things that you don’t really notice… until you do. I’m always like “ooh, I love this workspace!” and then when I go back through my “Office.” board, I notice that they all have this one thing in common: inspiration/motivation/vision boards. Does this sound like something that Chris from Parks & Rec would do? Yes. But also, they can be the perfect reflection of your personality and your future goals!  Not only that… remember the Feng Shui post from a couple of days ago? The ideal position for your desk is somewhere where it faces the door but, if that just isn’t possible (like in a small apartment, bedroom, or dorm), the next best thing is to make the wall “disappear”. Inspiration Boards are the perfect way to do that! They can be a source of inspiration, motivation, encouragement, pride in past accomplishments, and just something that is nice to look at after hours of reading or writing or crying because math is hard. 

There are literally TONS (okay, fine… there are figuratively tons) of examples out there! But what makes the perfect “recipe” for an inspiration board? Here is my oh-so-humble opinion:

Choose a color scheme

Your space should reflect you! Some workspaces are really dreamy looking with whites and subdued colors. You’ll want that to carry over into your inspiration board. Others are full of bold colors, or maybe bright pinks and turquoises! Whatever your design-style is, make sure that your board goes along with it and isn’t distracting or out of place. Also, add a little depth with tickets, ribbons, cards, etc! 

Can we please talk about the absolute genius-ness of this clipboard inspiration board from Trendenser?! 

Gather things that make you happy

This is pretty simple. Think of things that make you smile when you see them! Do you love the color pink? Penguins? Pretty dresses? Traveling? When you find or take photos of things that you just absolutely love, stick these up here! They will provide a safe haven for your mind when you’re feeling all depleted from reading a textbook that is likely droning on about something that bores you. 

Give yourself something to look forward to

There is also the “vision board” part of inspiration boards. The part that reminds you why you do whatever it is that you do! Where do you want to be 10 years from now? What field of work do you hope to be in? Where do you want to travel? Choose photos or quotes or headlines or pictures of people who inspire you! And don’t forget to include your long and short term goals! Create a “big picture”! 


Include Your past accomplishments

Have you won a blue ribbon for something? Or maybe received a certificate for some type of special recognition? What about photos from graduation, or your acceptance letter or test scores? Put these up here! A big part of staying motivated is to remind yourself of your past achievements! When things get hard, just look back and think, “This was challenging, but I did it. If I could do it then, I can do it now.”

Throw in some personal photos

Did you know that you can print out Instagram photos? Of course you did because I am the last person on Earth to find this out. I like Instas better than regular photos! Why? Because they really force you to choose one thing to represent an entire event and to focus on finding the beauty in everyday life. Print out a few of your favorites! Remind yourself that, even though your life is crazy, it is also beautiful!  

Inspiration boards are a great idea for a study space because they can just keep you motivated and on the right track by reminding you of what you’ve already done, what you’re doing now, and what you will do in the future! 

They can help you turn your dreams into goals, your goals into plans, and your plans into real life! 🙂 

Do you have a bulletin board or “inspiration board” in your study space? What kinds of things are on it? Has it helped you stay motivated when your schoolwork gets frustrating?

90,000 Minicum “Green Leaf”. Inspiration for the 3rd stage of the Lovely mini-2 JV from Olga Ryzhkova. Good afternoon, our dear JV members and just blog readers!

Today it is my turn to inspire you to create your own minicar within the framework of the Lovely mini-2 JV.

A mandatory element at this stage is envelopes. Probably, you all already know that in the TM ScrapMir product line in each collection there is a sheet with envelopes.So they will play the main role in my album, but not only they …

Today it is my turn to inspire you to create your own mini-album within the framework of the Lovely mini-2 project.

An obligatory element at this stage is envelopes . You probably already know that in the ScrapMir product line in each collection there is a sheet with envelopes. So they will play the main role in my album, but not only they …

Everything in order… My husband and I love to walk together, in parks, in gardens, just in the streets, the main thing – together. And he constantly takes pictures of me on the phone. I don’t like myself in the photo at all, but he likes it. And I have accumulated a lot of such photos. And here is just such an opportunity to make an album with photographs of your beloved, not to put them on public display, but to hide them in envelopes.
So, the album is in the form of a green leaf, because the photos from the parks and gardens of St. Petersburg, where there is a lot of greenery, flowers, and in general, are very beautiful)) For decoration I used a chic limited collection of Family tree.
The size of the mini is only 9 * 14 cm, but it is quite chubby because it is made of 8 envelopes.

If you’re wondering how I made the binding and cover, I’ll tell you a little.

First, I cut out 8 envelopes from green pastel paper with a knife. Then she made an accordion out of the same paper, and pasted all the envelopes into the accordion by the flaps. This is the basis for the album. Then I made an embossing on pastel paper and cut out a sheet, which I glued to cardboard. Further, according to the technology, I made a paper binding and that’s all, it remains only to decorate the pages.


Oh, yes, I also forgot to say about the magnetic fastener, because the album is thick enough, and it is not necessary for it to open. Decorated the clasp with a pretty chipboard.
Two sheets of embossed on cardboard with paper binding in between …

All spreads are made of the same type, differing only in decor. On the endpapers, I pasted large cards from a sheet with cards for cutting 30 * 30cm.

Decorated only the front side of large photo envelopes. There are only inscriptions on the back of these envelopes.



I put 6 * 9 cm photographs in large envelopes, 3-4 pieces in each envelope.

Of course, miniature envelopes from the collections play the main role in the decor. In addition to envelopes from this collection, I used a couple more from the Falling in love collection, they fit perfectly in the palette.

But these small envelopes not only play a decorative role for me, in them I also hid the tags with the magazine, which I also cut out from the sheet for cutting.Very convenient – cut out the envelope, cut out the desired tag, wrote everything you need and hid the tag in the envelope!

The envelopes come in two shapes, horizontal and vertical, and both of these shapes are great and fit me perfectly!

In addition to envelopes for decoration, I also used cards, because there are a lot of pages in my minicar, and, unfortunately, there were not enough envelopes.


Have you paid attention to die cuts and cutters? They are chic in this collection … My favorites are acorns and butterflies!

By the way, owners of plotters, in this collection, cutters are perfectly recognized by the plotter, so cut and create.
And I will also show my miniature FROM envelopes and With envelopes, which comfortably fits on the palm of your hand.


You were with me, Olga Ryzhkova (@leka_ryzhkova) and my mini-album with envelopes, made for the 3rd stage of the Lovely mini-2 joint venture. 90,000 Creative Corner: Autumn Leaf

Greetings to all!

Today I want to talk about the time for philosophical reflections, hot coffee, a warm blanket and leisurely friendly conversations. A time of pleasant melancholy, contemplation of the uniquely beautiful autumn nature and reading new books.The time when people should warm each other: with their words, with their feelings, with their lips. It’s autumn!

Someone associates this time with the coming cold weather, bad weather and annoying rains. And for some, this time is associated with the warm light of the setting sun, cozy home evenings and carpets of colorful leaves in parks.

I will show you one of these leaves today

And this is again a maple leaf. BUT this time I made a box and the choice of this shape is not accidental.And why?! You will understand a little later


Look how many bright colors autumn gives us. Colored leaves, red rowan berries.


The box is made from scratch from binding cardboard. It turned out to be quite durable. For decoration I used the autumn collection from Mona Design


The lid of the box may well act as a separate independent element. Few details: bright die cuts, cutting openwork leaves, thin weightless chipboard



And of course a warm mug of tea




Black scattering of sequins, splashes of black acrylic paint

Finally, let’s take a look inside…. And there


Autumn brooch “Rowan” I made it as a gift to one very good person. I really hope that you will like the gift. Therefore, I also wanted to make the packaging for her special, autumn.




Get inspired by the autumn weather, pick up warm autumn colors and create your favorite works!

Bye bye everyone!

I will show my box in task
I took a palette and a pumpkin from the inspiration board

SSK My Autumn is bright leaves and harvest

I will show myself in the gallery from Agi Art (I used cutting down with knives and mountain ash and maple leaves) .
