It's Fun to Play the Piano ... Please Pass It On!
She definitely has an affinity for the black keys. I think she's trying to play Chopin's black key etude. Her rhythm is right on the money. I can't wait for my granddaughter to start. She's just 4 months old and just recently discovered the wonders of her fingers.
That was well done. Is that a piece that Horowitz played at his concert in Russia where the audience was literally in tears? Also, are you playing on a Yamaha P?? console, circa 1980's? I have the same piano although yours sounds so much better. I primarily use my Roland digital because the Yamaha just sounds too harsh even after a tuning.
I like your recording LaValse despite never heard the song before (I believe at least.) How long you been playing?
I hope you don't mind me asking it here, but what cables would I need to record my playing on my computer? I'm getting slightly confused I've got an usb to usb cable, but that only records midi but I want to record actual playing. It looks like this.
So what do I need to get started to record my not-so-very-good playing on my computer so I can maybe post it here for some advice?

Oh, that was very nice La Valse. I don't know the piece, but I thought your phrasing and dynamics were quite expressive. I admire you pianists that can make such nice music out of the classical pieces. Nice way to bridge 09-10.
Today I am returning to the piano after a fairly lengthy absence, and I find a New Year's present in the form of your posting of the Skriabin piece - that piece is what really lit the piano fire inside me when a friend shared a video of Horowitz playing this about 7 years ago. I knew nothing about piano (or music of any kind) - but that piece touched something deep inside me and I was instantly and permanently hooked. You did a great job with it and thanks for sharing.
Now, if I can just remember where I left my piano ....
Prince Charles, did I hear a little Thelonias Monk influence? She has a very interesting style. My only criticism would be the vocalizing while playing... I realize that some pianists do this but frankly I think this is a habit that should be nipped in the bud... so to speak. also, and I hate to be picky, but I think the composition is a bit on the long side. I started to lose interest somewhere in the cadenza. But all in all... a great talent!

True Beginner - what an aptly named piece - I listened all the way thru making breakfast (yes, I know it's 9:45 am. I'm a night person - ) It was perfect. Beautiful.
The band is doing quite well, La Valse, and thanks for asking. We're becoming audacious enough to think about sending in an audition piece for a little Celtic festival in Wyoming this summer. Besides, we think a road trip would be fun

David - that was quite charming, and you make it look easy.
Well, my new year's "resolution" was to try to listen to more music, and the piano bar was obviously a fine way to start. I just don't know how you can be so productive, not to mention musical, at this time of the morning

I've been contemplating posting this piece in the bar or saving it as a backup in case my recital piece wasn't ready but I've been slacking a bit on working on the recital piece as much as I should so I think I'll force myself to get working.
Here's the first track from Ludovico Einaudi's newest album "Nightbook."
This piece is titled "In Principio" which ought to make it a good fit to be posted on the beginning of a new year.
