Hi,

so glad I found this forum. I'm excited to learn what i can from all you seasoned pianists.

just a little background, if you're interested:

I was an oboe performance major way back when (1995-1998) until i decided i didn't want to (try) to play oboe for a living. (Incidentally, i took one semester of beginning piano which was required, then I started another semester of piano lessons but i decided it wasn't the right time to do that, so i dropped it early on).

I switched my major eventually getting a degree in literature. but i still felt that itch to play so i bought a guitar and have played for about 10 years, more or less.

one day, i listened to the Waldstein Sonata and melted into my seat. At that point, i realized: the piano beckons.

So i'm now starting lessons. i hope to one day...well i'll probably never be able to play the Waldstein Sonata, but one can hope....

peace to you all,
Rider of Rohan

I think it would only take somebody with your background a few particularly devoted years to the instrument to be able to play Beethoven's Waldstein at a respectable level. And what's more is by that time, I'm certain you'll have discovered other gems you'll want to learn further on as well! Welcome and good luck to you.
