Hey everyone! I'm Mike, and I joined this site after getting lots of useful information on buying my first digital piano (Roland RP 201) which has worked out great. I played piano when I was really little for about a year and then really started playing about 2 years ago. Im also using this forum to get help and recommendations for a free piano site that I am creating (www.easyonears.weebly.com) I'll be getting a better site address soon I hope. The hope for my site is to have people who like similar piano styles (contemporary and pop) share songs, artists, and tutorials ect, and have it all in one place. So hopefully I can find discover some great artists and songs that I didnt know about and help other people do so as well. Look forward to any help to come and, hopefully, to create a site a few of you might enjoy.

Happy playing and blogging!

Mike

Hi I played everyday from the ages of 8-18 (have finished my grades). Then uni took over and I literally stopped playing for 3 years. Now that I've finished, I'm looking to get my technique up to scratch. Happy playing everyone!

Hello and yes, I am a "newbie". Live in St. Pete, Florida, play "lounge" style pop piano, teeny bit of jazz, some boogie and lots of standards....favorite Polka Dots and Moobeams in F, only one flat, whew.
Selling my Yamaha T118 upright, only a year old and in pristine condition, but need a smaller instrument, like a studio upright for instance....nooo not a spinet, to me that is like playing wire strings stretched over a metal wash tub.
I have posed a question and really would like some feed back. Okay? Her goes. It's a simple question....what do you like about owning a piano? Cause it looks nice in your house....attractive piece of furniture....playing it relaxes you.....when you play, the ladies or gentlement are attracted to you depending on your gender, of course.....you have been forced to practice by mom or your piano teacher....what are you reasons or reason. Please post. Thanks a lot.

Hello everyone.

I don't have any formal education on the field of music or playing the piano. I compose on my own and have a habit of listening extensively to Alkan, Beethoven and Meyerbeer's operas and finding out about Liszt's more obscure pieces.

I've never had the honour of playing with a concert grand piano, many of you people are more lucky than you know. I have an electric piano which I'm keen to get rid of sooner or later after having to endure its crappiness for my whole piano-playing life, but I have to persevere with it for now. I'm not too big of a fan about my technique, it's really bad, but I like my "musicanship", if that's any proper to say.

Good to meet you people smile

Hi - I posted an introduction on the non-classical forum as well, because that's the style I'm now trying to teach myself. In a nutshell, I've been playing since I was 10, and I'm now 51. I was classically trained, through all the grades and also to diploma level, but due to early teaching, my ability to memorise and improvise was stifled. So I am now starting afresh, with a beginner's mind, and attempting to play entirely without music...to rekindle my natural ability to play by ear. Reading notation has its place, but I have now come to believe that music really only comes to life when it is being played from the heart, rather than by rote. I'm finding this journey deeply frustrating, but I'm determined to wake my brain up and become an instinctive musician again. I'm looking forward to chatting to you all.

Carol

I have already posted a few tid-bits on the forum, but figured I just give a formal introduction. I have been playing piano for about 10 years now, and playing music for my whole life. My family said I was humming "Amazing Grace" by 9 months of age, which leads me to believe I am just meant to be a musician. I am highly trained in most woodwinds, and ever higher trained in brass instruments. I marched with Blue Knight Drum and Bugle Corps out of Denver, CO for a few years. I have performed in hundreds of venues around the world, with my largest crowd being a sold out Mile High Stadium. After having every opportunity to make music my life I gave it up for two reasons. One, I didn't like all the back stage drama that fills the music world, and two, I joined the Marine Corps.

I picked up piano about 6 years after I started my formal training in music. It was one of my last instruments I thought would be needed to be able to play to consider myself a true musician, and plus it seemed an easy way to pick up girls. lmao I had a great piano teacher all through high school. Who really helped me excel on the piano.

I am fluent in pretty much every genre, but not saying I'm fluent in every genre of music on the piano. Jazz just seems easier and funner on brass instruments. If I had to give myself a grade of ability on piano, 1 being a beginner and 10 being a concert pianist, I would probably put myself at a 5.865. Mostly because I wasn't able to keep up my piano during my time in the Marines.

As far as non music related intros go, I'm 26, married with 3 boys(ages 4,5,6). I live in southern Louisiana.

Welcome to PW! By the way, I see in your signature that you're doing Bach's Toccata and Fugue in D minor, BWV 565. Are you playing this on an organ, or is it a piano transcription? If it's a transcription, who transcribed it?

hello, this is my first post and am kinda shy. I started playing pinao when I was 3, then stopped because I was too lazy to practise, and now i regret. Anyway i have since stopped playing.

Recently i came across youtube videos of Samson Francois and am now obsessed, with the pianist and the music. Now i've decided to take up piano again, along with my 2 babies when they're a little older. Meanwhile I need to buy a piano, which is a big problem as I live in Hong Kong in a tiny apartment, with a tiny budget, but am adamant on getting a grand, albeit a tiny grand. I don't know much about pianos or brands, so I thought I'd start here, in these forums.
Hope to chat with you all soon...

Hi, an overdue introduction.

I’ve posted a few things on some forums already, lots of good advice here and have decided to stay.

I had three years of piano lessons when I was 7 and hated it. All of my original piano books are now lost in the midst of time (which shows you how interested I was) except for my very first John Thompson, how it survived I don't know. My then teacher scared the hell out of me, she looked like Beethoven, smelt and coughed a lot, and they were her good points. I still remember the day I went to my last piano lesson and my teacher said to me "Your mum tells me you want to play trombone?" (it was trumpet actually). I said yeah, that’s right, then I think I just left and never saw her again. Now fast forward for 30 years on trumpet, I played for church and in orchestras. But I still kept on dabbling with the piano (so there must have been some influence there 3hearts, thank you Mrs B) and decided to study formally again with a teacher about 2 years before I retired on trumpet and have now studied piano for 5 years and never looked back and now I love it.

Best,

Anthony.

Hi,

My name is Emma and, actually, I'm not really a pianist, but a violinist. I came across this forum a couple of months ago via quite an interesting post about chopin's 1st ballade. It has always interested me how certain pieces of music manage to touch and affect many people and I was trying to find out why...?
I have been enjoying myself playing bits and pieces of the ballade (i learnt piano when I was younger) but am trying to work out what makes that piece such an evocative and affecting one...

Anyway, HELLO!

Hello Everyone,
I have been lurking for a while around here and just joined today. I found the sight while searching for some piano information. I am a classically trained pianist with an undergraduate degree in music - I studied a piano pedagogy emphasis complete with student teaching, and also have a graduate degree in education. I am both a former piano and elementary classroom teacher. I am taking time off to be a full-time mom right now... although I do teach music/piano to my own children.

It was my grandmother that first introduced me to the piano. She had a big chickering grand piano in her living room. I gravitated toward it from an early age. It has been in her family since new - 1905. As an adult, I inherited it and had it completely redone, inside and out, top to bottom, by someone that I consider to be a Chickering specialist. It is such a joy to play and I have such fond memories of playing on it growing up. I love that my children are learning to play on it, too.

Anyway my formal lessons didn't begin until I was 9 years old. I progressed rapidly and participated in all of the Guild and Federation Auditions. It seemed only natural that I would pursue a music degree in college.

I love playing and teaching piano... My biggest challenge is finding time to practice.

Hey I'm new here and I found this site out of searching for some piano information and a few friends suggested I join the forum. I'm getting back into piano after almost 9 yrs now and also minoring in music within my last few semesters of an undergrad in college before i go for the Masters and then the PhD. I've been lurking around at the different forums and found some encouragement in a lot of the posts. I was hesitant at first to join because I used to go through college doing everything myself and leaarned the hard way that success is based on relationships...

With that being said I realized I don't know everything, lol, and I really want to learn and get advice as I continue into the piano, my career in music and health and meet amazing people that I can learn from! I've posted on the adult beginners forum first in case you wanna know a better introduction. Even though my playing isn't necessarily beginner, I'm beginning a whole new life and that means re-learning old lessons and spiring new ones!

Hello i am new to the forum and have been playing piano for a few years now. I have a variety of books ranging frim artists like keane to Alicia Keys. I also have a classical book with some very good songs in it.

I am currently learning Habenara from Carmen and I am perfecting an Alicia keys song called Empire state of mind. I am still learning and probably not as skilled as some people here but i am starting grades soon and hope to reach Grade 8 someday and be able to play some classic piano masterpieces.

I'll write a quick intro before I post my question on the board... I did the whole competitive pianist thing throughout my childhood/teens. I loved it, but later turned down a scholarship to Eastman because I just didn't want to make it my life's work, you know?

Fast-forward 25 years, and I have no regrets. I perform occasionally in local concerts and that's enough for me. (although I admit that I've had a few "wow, what if..." moments when I've heard my former competitors playing on NPR!)

I lurk on this forum semi-regularly but don't post since I am sure I lack the education of so many here. I hope someone will respond to the thread I'm about to start.

I studied piano from age 9 to 15 and then my interest moved to other things (computers and Math, mostly). I continued playing casually through the years, and at the age of 30 I took some more lessons and got significantly better at it. To give you an idea of my skill level, I can play the first two pieces in Albéniz's suite Iberia ("Evocación" and "El Puerto") but I find the rest of the pieces too challenging.

I have only posted in these forums to ask for advice before buying pianos (I now have a Schimmel 189BE that I am really happy with and I just bought a used Kawai RX-6 that I still haven't had time to really play).

As for the type of music I play, I seem to gravitate towards Albéniz, Debussy, Mompou and Padre Donostia. Recently I've been playing some Rachmaninoff and a bit of Chopin.

If I ever find the time I would love to learn to improvise, particularly jazz. But I am afraid I might be too old now (mid thirties).

Hello Piano World smile

My name is Lee & i have always wanted to play piano since i was a child. I am currently learning (2 years of practice) classical guitar & have just got a cheap keyboard. I want to learn piano for myself but i really want to get my teenage niece into music. She does not want to learn the techniques at the moment or reading the notations. If i can learn the basics i know i can help her & not force her away with endless scales etc.

I play guitar so i can read music but i have a problem with the bass staff. I know i have only just started on piano so I'm not expecting miracles. I find reading the bass staff stops me dead in my tracks & i have to work out the notes.

I have a question if anyone can help...
Is there any rhyme that will help me remember the ledger lines on the bass staff? Any advice or tips on this subject would be greatly appreciated smile

I am very excited to be learning piano & can't wait to play along with my niece. Also i know this forum will help me with all the experienced members it has.

Hi to everybody,

my name is Bernd, 54, I am german, engineer, did the german "Haus Baum Sohn" thing (built a house, no two, planted a tree, no nine, and mad.. hrmm have a son of 22 yrs.

I am not fully new here as I posted in the piano forum several times and also posted a little bit in the technicians division. ;-)

Ending 2009 I had worked a very lot and my pocket was too full (two times saved xmas money) and I strolled along to get a new digital piano, replacing my Yamaha DX-7 synthesizer, adding my G. Adam upright from 1909.

I now own my third piano. My first I took from a classmate in highschool when he ovccasionally got a new piano - I convinced the transporters to transprt the old one to my parents' house who knew nothing.. And the piano did not match through the staircase.. At last it matched - disasembled.

My second piano was a gift from my bro-in-law who had mastered his university exam as an organ player and choir leader for the catholic church, had married my sister, they went to another town and also bought a new piano. I got his old one, the G. Adam, Wesel upright.

29 yrs. later.. having learned one year piano lessons, having played the ragtime of Scott Joplin only, had dreamt on Chopin's music but thought it were too difficult for me.. Then I saw a waltz occasionally at my bro-in-laws home, thought that I could do this piece, turned the page - SHOCK - Chopin!!! I can play it! YESSS! I was so happy.. I bought note sheets of Chopin and learned.

Now, five years later - I strolled to music shops, looked into the internet, saw also ebay, also acoustic pianos - and saw the web shop of a big pianoshop some 30 mls away, offering 200 pianos of which 50 were grands.. Strolled along there. 't was an eye opener. I always hat thought that I would buy a grand when I were 60 or 65 - the eyeopener was that I yed HAD the money for a grand whose place was kept free since 20 yrs in our living room..

The search ended in the fulfilling of my dream which I thought had to wait some other 5 or 10 yrs: a grand. Looked ebay - three days later my heart got an attack - a Steinway grand - super old, super big.. A real Formula One class piano, Nine Footer Sailing Class.. I occasionally found THE piano, a super old Steinway concert grand, this quite famous "Centennial D" type.. It surprised me deeply when I was curious how such a piano might sound, when I visited a small piano workshop near the railway station in Hannover, Germany. It produced an ending chord to the Recuerdos de la Alhambra from Tarrega, A major, and the end chord lasted nearly five minutes.. .. It was Heaven on Earth. I did not choose a piano – ohh no.. The big black fat male singing cat from Manhattan’s street has built in the soul of a poor pianomaker. He had sold it to the Devil of Sounds. The cat has found a new servant.. to nurse him the next 30 yrs.

..this writing the happiest hobby pianist on Planet Earth.

:-)

I took lessons from my father, a professional organist, from 2nd grade through high school. Five years of that I took organ lessons also, and played in a church. That got me very used to playing in public.

Fast forward a few decades, and I decided to take piano lessons again. It's very rewarding and fun. I'm not terribly serious, practicing about 20-30 minutes many days of the week.

For the equipment fans: I have the family Mason & Hamlin AA, c. 1919. For an old piano it is in relatively good condition. It's been played a LOT, for hours every day when the large family was growing up. It has an interesting effect: when you slightly press the una corda pedal, there is a "fuzzy", almost harpsichord-like effect. It may be inappropriate, but I love it. It's almost like another stop.

For the music fans: I'm working on Cesar Franck's "Prelude, Chorale and Fugue" -- probably a 4 year project. I'm over 2 years into it already.

Hi I am Frank. I have been playing since I was 12. I played until I got out of College. Did a couple of jobs playing piano at restaurants and some recording. Pretty much stopped playing until my 50th birthday. I started taking lessions from a local college professor. I have started back up in the Bach two part inventions and some Chopin Noctunes. In addition I play some soft jazz. I now own a 1994 Baldwin Hamilton upright and a Kawai MP6 stage piano. I have at my office a 1973 Fender Rhodes 88 piano. Since some people wander off and smoke, I just take piano breaks. I am an IT Manager for a fortune 500 company. Both of my daughter play piano and one is currently majoring in music education. I do look forward to following and contributing to this board.

I stumbled across this forum recently. I have had a few lessons, but never took lessons on a regular basis. Mostly I would play easy classical pieces, but ran into a problem when I couldn't play two against three. Somehow the bug bit and I decided I was going to learn how. Next I was trying to tackle three against four and then other rhythms. It took about four years of this before it became natural. Anyway, I found it really easy to improvise and ended up composing a number of pieces. None are published but only for my own amusement. I have been pursuing polyrhythms for 21 years now.

My current piano is a Yamaha P140 which I use with a Yamaha MU-15 sound module. In the past I had an upright piano. Just about a year ago, I took up the bass guitar as a challenge. Dave

I started to play piano when I was about five. I went through about 3 teachers before I found out who I liked. I was recently into Jazz, but Georges Cziffra has caught my eye now. I enjoy pieces that Franz Liszt wrote, and although I can't reach that far yet, I do wish to learn the Hungarian Rhapsody no.2 sometime in the future.
