Hi All -

I'm janet, from Texas and South Carolina. Probably a bit more old school than most, rounding out at 59. I took piano as a small kid, age 7-10. I recently picked things up again about 2 years ago.

I often pick pieces beyond my capabilities - which totally frustrates me. I do not aspire to be anything more than a good intermediate player, able to look at something and sight read through it without sounding like an idiot. I can do the sight reading part...but i am still working on the not sounding like an idiot part.

Seriously though, I enjoy playing and am currently working on the following:

Once Upon a December
Saving Mr. Banks
Feed the Birds
Moonlight Sonata
Summer of 42
and just picked up a sheet of Mary Did you Know.

That's about it...

Hi. I just made a small thread introducing myself but I also wanted to get myself in here too.

I took lessons from age 6-21. Played a little bit after graduating college but fell out of it. Now I'm 39 and work in political data. Honestly, I'm looking for some release that I used to get when practicing for hours. While I was "good" growing up, I was very immature in my approach and expressions. I'm curious how ~20 years of experience might come through.

I am also curious if I can beat a couple of pieces that defeated me: Rachmaninoff Prelude in G minor, Chopin Scherzo Op 39, no 3 in C# minor. That Chopin, I want it. My piano teacher picked it for me when I was a senior in college for the closing piece of my recital and I didn't practice it enough. Which is a shame because she picked it so she knew I could do it. Again, immature.

I'm looking forward to listening to the recitals and learning about everyone.

welcome to the forum metaresolve. It will indeed be interesting how your life experience effects your return to piano.
