Have you ever wanted to start to practice on the organ but found yourself sidetracked after a few days? Apparently your inner motivation wasn't enough.
I know how you feel. I also was stuck many times. What helped me was to find some external motivation as well.
In order for you to advance your organ playing skills and help you motivate to practice, my wife Ausra - @laputis and I invite you to join in a challenge to submit your organ music.
Are you an experienced organist? You can participate easily. Are you a beginner? No problem. This contest is open to every organ music loving Hivian.
- It's sort of open mic challenge for organ music - no limitation to length, level of difficulty, genre etc.
- It can be any organ piece, any hymn, any improvisation or any organ exercise.
- It has to be performed by you without editing.
- Be sure to clearly state Secrets of Organ Playing Challenge, the week number, your Hive user name, and the random challenge entry word of the week. This week's password is "New Year's Eve".
- Upload your entry to YouTube.
- Make a post about your entry on Hive (use https://peakd.com to post).
- Performance on pipe, electronic and virtual organs are valid.
- Performance on synthesizers is PERMITTED as long as you play real organ music.
- Use #secretsoforganplaying as your first tag. Optional: use #palnet, #neoxian, #creativecoin, #marlians, #tunes and #sonicgroove tags to earn additional tokens as well.
- Upvote and reblog this post on Hive.
- Comment this post on Hive with link to your entry and video so people can see and listen to it.

Our goal here is to support the community while motivating you to practice and inspiring to create some amazing music.
