Hey, good points. But I did not include any geographical questions because I know a lot of people do not want to give away the geographical location to someone they have never met. As for what kind of music they listen to, is not really relevant to my paper. The paper focuses on what kind of people play piano over all, and what kind of music they play, not what kind of people play piano in New York and what kind of music do they listen to. The last question is good to, and would be great to include but, you can never quite trust what other people say about themselves as to how they act. Whether they are kind or mean for example, most everyone would answer kind, even if they are mean. Because kindness in more popular.
Thanks for the advice!
-Rusty

1: What kind of music do you enjoy playing? classical and occasional jazz standards
2: How old are you? 59
3: Are you man or woman? man
4: How old were you when you first started to learn piano? 56
5: Why did you start playing piano? I've always admired people who can play the piano, and thought I would give it a try.
6: At what level of skill would you rate yourself? early intermediate
7: What kind of piano do you play? Estonia 190L Grand
8: Why do you love to play piano? It is the perfect combination of a physical and intellectual hobby. Although you don't burn many calories, the physical demands and connection to the instrument are undeniable. Intellectualy all music is a mystery and enormous challenge to a relative beginner like myself.

I used to play on a Yamaha upright. Now I play on a Kawai CS6 Digital (since I don't want to disturb my neighbours). After I graduate and make some money I would definitely go for a proper grand.

Because I love music, and the piano is such a versatile and powerful instrument to create and compose music on. And without music, life would Bb smile
