I cannot give any meaningful advice on your predicament Teodor as I have only been learning piano for a few months, however, I can offer life experience. At fifty five I've learned a few things and one of them is not to give up, you may regret it a

I just listened to your piano piece PianoPlayer98. It's a nice little piece, not terribly original, and overly relying on cliche emotive patterns. Sounds like nothing distinctive... where, who.... are you, in your piano playing? Welcome to PW,

What AJF says: getting a good teacher is the real issue. Of course it is more rewarding to practice on a real piano, but there are situations where this is not an option, at least for some time. Determination, practice, and the best teacher you can f

We've discussed meaning in music before here, and I came across this quote by Mendelssohn talking about that very topic. Here is what he wrote in 1842: "People often complain that music is too ambiguous. With me, it is the exact opposite, and n
