Speechless... those are some awesome playing. You can really make the dp sing.

How long did you study piano to get to this level?

Thanks for your comments smile.
I'm mostly self taught, but I had some lessons when I was about 10 and again when i was 16/17. I'm 19 now so thats...probably about 10 years since I first played a piano. Its hard to say exactly how long I've been 'studying' for.

Hi Bruce,

Thanks for sharing these great videos with us. Your voicing on the Rachmaninoff was very good -I would imagine that's very challenging on a DP. The rhythm on the Bach was solid and the pieces executed beautifully. I'm not familiar with the Prokofiev, but I did enjoy it. The Mendelssohn was charming, with good voicing and dynamics.

Your hand position looks perfect, very unusual for a self-learner. Obviously you had a GOOD teacher early on. Well done thumb I predict we'll see more from you.
