I has been 20 years since I last played piano. I used to play piano very beautiful when I was 7, but due to study pressure and family life I had to leave my passion. I found my friend's paino in his house (as I'm staying with him for few days) and this is the chance I can re-live my childhood days again.

You`ve come to the right place, man! There`s lots going on what with recitals and stuff. You`ll enjoy recording I`m sure. It`s a great way to iron out mistakes . . . ! Have fun! grin

What? You found studying and family life too much pressure at 7!

Just kidding, welcome to the forum Mark, hopefully you will soon return to playing piano beautifully

The good news is ... it's never too late. There are lots of stories similar to yours from participants here.

The best motivation for practice and improving that I have ever come across is ... THIS FORUM. Get involved and stick around. It is a fabulous past time.
