So the piano community has been very good to me my whole life- playing at Carnegie Hall when I was a junior in high school, winning 2nd place in a division of 9 southern states, and first place in over 20 local/state competitions.

I would like to bring something back into the community- please feel free to ask me any questions, whether it be a piece that you're working on and stuck at a certain point, need tips to play a certain style, or anything that's on your mind that you want to improve.

I will try to get back to you ASAP, and if warranted I may do a video on it if it's easier that way. Just my way of giving back a little bit. Thank you!

ShaneLu - welcome to the forum. I just heard recording over at the Pianists Corner. Your playing is needless to say fantastic. I really appreciate your offer. We have several "resident teachers" in this forum who helps out from time to time. I suggest observing how they interact with us adult beginners / restarters. Just check some of the theory question thread or analysis thread. You will gradually find your "happy place" in this forum. This is a very inclusive, encouraging and caring forum. I hope you like it here. I am an adult restarter and I will definitely post some pieces in your thread to get your help. Thanks.

rotflmao! I don't think he meant that kind of help. I've seen his play from the other forum. I'm imagining him thinking right now: "Gee...I have now arrived....I'm playing in a beginner recital!" rotflmao!

Seriously, ShaneLu....Welcome...
I'd look forward to a blog of yours. Or one series of answers I think would be of interest to this forum right now is: With common bad physical habits in playing piano. What are you doing to yourself? How is it you're cutting short your ability?
Then people can answer: Gee I never do that....but...can you explain X or Y a little deeper?
