There have been less than 5 days in 9 months that I don't sit at my piano.(until I just HAVE to get up!) It is one of the most enjoyable, fulfilling things in my life. And I see and feel growth every week. I would like to find a teacher that would show me the secrets, tricks, chord patterns... I'm almost 50 and am not going to be a concert pianist. But I can play just about any song in my church hymnal! And I am loving every minute of it. I guess I wanted a teacher that would show me more.


One of the best (and most inspiring) posts I've read anywhere in the forums at any time - there is much wisdom in this for all us self-teachers - thanks HappyApple - you've made me a HappyCamper! thumb

Anyway,I am glad you came to a decision. Now, back to the keyboard and find your joy again!
