Appointed music director of my Church in January 2014 because I sang the loudest not because I knew much about music wink. My only talent must of come from my sons who both have BM and MM in piano performance. I started voice lessons in February 2014 and then piano lessons in August 2014. We purchased a Kawai CN34 DP in November 2014 (until then I was playing on a low end Casio unweighted keyboard which I bought new for $80). My younger son has been teaching me piano over the Internet since early December and he will start teaching me voice next week (the previous teacher was a rock and roll guy who wanted me to sing too high in pitch and too loud for my comfort -- and an ENT doctor told me I need to change teachers).

I am also taking online music theory classes from St. Petersburg college for credit (and for free because of my age and residence in Florida). I much enjoy learning about music, singing and playing piano and look forward to many more years of lessons.

Hi,

Returning adult, after 20 years. My mother finally got the 1901 restored Steinway Grand she always wanted so I "inherited" her old broke-down Hardman-Peck upright for practice.

Self-learning most everything from Music Theory to Sight-Reading with a wealth of books and iPad apps to get going. A piano teacher to help me with "playing" (dynamics, articulation, fingering, musicality etc.)

My goals are to perform solo concerts and "gig" in a band!

The only sad thing is I miss my old teacher from my teenage years. He is the one that instilled this love of the piano in me, despite me being a terrible rebellious teenage student. Unfortunately he passed away several years ago, but his legacy remains!

welcome the forum Groove On, yes teachers can be very significant and unfortunate we don't always appreciate them at the time.

Thank you for the welcomes!

I like playing traditional classical and american classics like Copland, Bernstein, Gershwin. For gigging though, I think it will be a lot of pop, ballads, rock and latin music.

And a I love playing an in-tune acoustic piano over anything else, especially the special ones that have that beautiful "singing" tone in every note.
