Hello All,

I know this thread has been active for a while, but better late than never.

I am a 42 year old male who took up the piano starting in January. I've never played an instrument before, so everything is starting from scratch. I currently playing a Yamaha Digital Clavinova CLP-240. It suits me just fine for training, but I hope to move up to a grand acoustic in a couple of years.

I am taking lessons weekly from a UCLA music school grad who excels in classical music. He recently put on a recital for all his students that was nothing short of phenomenal. I am working on Michael Aaron's Grade 1 lesson book. I will try to participate in the next recital, although it will be very short.

My music interests are mainly in Pop and Classic Rock. My very first concert I attended was Elton John, and now I've seen him about 10 different times. I also enjoy Billy Joel, who I'm seeing tonight, and Jim Brickman who I saw last month.

I live in Chandler, AZ which is just south of Phoenix and about 30 miles from Super-Hunky. I have been married 21 years to a beautiful lady and we have two cute little girls, ages 7 and 5. I hope to get them playing the piano also.

I am empoyed by the FAA as an Air Traffic Controller at Sky Harbor airport for the last 17 years. My other interests are golfing, woodworking, and traveling.

I look forward to participating in this forum with all you fine people.

No way has your wife been married 21 years, kickbackkid. You, maybe; but tell her I said she looked no older than 25 in her picture!

Ever since I read Alex Hailey's "Airport" as a kid I have had a fascination with air traffic controllers. The combination of so much responsibility and so little margin of error terrifies me, though. My hat's off to you!

Bob,

I have to laugh everytime I hear this when I tell them what kind of work I do. The media and movies always portrays us as a bunch of stressed out, smoking and drinking bums. I only have two of the three!

Actually, it's no more stressful than working at a Mcdonald's. There are so many procedures set up to keep the planes apart and it becomes so routine. Besides, if I screw up, I'm not the one who's going to die. ;\)

Monica,

My wife appreciated the compliment. I guess that doesn't bode well for me however. \:\( Actually, she's one month older than me. She always tells our kids that she's 31. I'm sure she could pass for that.

Between this thread, the pics thread, and our common interest in piano, I really feel like we're becoming friends.

I am 40 years old! I am a RN, and I work at nights on the weekends in a busy ER. I truly love my weekend work! I have been married for 20 years this July! I have two children ages 11 (daughter)and 16(son). We have two laborador retrievers. We all live in Houston, Texas, and have for the last 11 years. Prior to that we were in Denver, Colorado. I miss the weather!

My children are both homeschooled,(I homeschool them during the week, hence, weekend nurse!) as they both had different learning styles that were unable to be met by the public schools where we live, and we found an excellent curriculum that fits their learning styles, and our lifestyle. Both my children were diagnosed with ADHD, however, my daughter was also diagnosed with Central Auditory Processing Disorder. While it is clear that there are challenges, we have been able to address and meet these challenges. My son tested college level in reading and writing in the 7th grade, and wrote his first novel when he was 9 years old, over the summer! It was incredible! He has won several awards and received recognition for his writing. He is also an excellent guitarist after only 18 months. He loves improvising, and playing Joe Satriani pieces, and learns pieces by ear. He doesn't read notes! Our challenge with him, academic motivation! Extremely gifted, and yet would rather be doing anything but school!
My daughter is on grade level,and also excels in reading and writing. She is now ,finally, working fairly independently, and is very academically motivated. No real challenges with her. She knows what is expected, and does it. Maybe it's a "girl" thing! She sings and writes her own songs. She has a great little voice for 11 years old.

I am totally and admittedly addicted to music and my piano! I love to read books on music, listen to music, and then play the music I hear! Only one problem, my fingers are not as enthusiastic as my ears, and I must read music to be able to play. I am working on imrovisation, however theory is not one of my strong points! I have been playing for 2 years in May. I just bought a Yamaha grand piano on my birthday in November. I took lessons as a child at age 6-7 and then 9-10, and then played for one year in Chorus! I played the very simple pieces, the other girl played the more difficult pieces! It was at that age (12), that music began to mean a lot to me, but we were unable to afford lessons, so I quickly grew frustrated with myself and gave up the piano!

In May 2004, I was taking my daughter for piano lessons, and I heard the most beautiful music I had heard in a very long time. I asked him what he was playing, he said Ron A La Natural! I was so blown away at his improvisation style, I had to begin lessons myself. I now take theory from him, and technique/piano, from another teacher, a doctoral student at a local University.

I am playing at about early intermediate/sight readable, to intermediate, challenging for me.
I have been working on the K545 for about a month now, and I am still working on the smoothness of all the runs, and the timing of it all! I am always up for piano discussions! Never bored with piano! If I could, I would own 100 of them!

Favorite composer: Chopin, Haydn, Beethoven, Mozart, Liszt, Schubert, Mendelssohn!

Okay, this will probably come across as sounding a bit vain, but imagine my shock when I saw this thread pop up! Huh? A thread addressed to me(just look at my signature)?!!

After all, I am a tenor......

First, my interest in pianos. I grew up with a piano in the house for most of my life, took lessons from my grandfather for a short time when I was six, self-taught for awhile, then took some more piano in my one year of college as a vocal performance major. While I was in high school, my parents bought a 1922 Hamilton(made by Baldwin) Manualo player, which absolutely fascinated me. We'd had the piano less than two weeks, when one day I shut myself in the family room where we had it and took it apart down to the strings and keybed. My father got suspicious after hearing nothing from the family room for over a couple of hours, took a peek at the worst possible time, and managed to maintain his composure to the point of simply saying, "For your sake, I hope you can put it back together." After tinkering around with that piano for a bit, I got interested enough to apprentice a piano rebuilder for a couple of years, and learned to be a piano technician from the soundboard up. I ended up joining the Navy, which interfered greatly with tuning on a regular basis, so I never really got into the business on my own, but tuned and did repair work occaisionally. We have a 20 month-old daughter who is bewitched by the piano, and the player action of the Hamilton is in dire need of rebuilding, so my thoughts lately have been more and more about gtetting enthusiastic about pianos all over again.

As for other background, I have a wonderful wife and child, I have the priveledge of being the stay-at-home parent, and still get to sing professionally(hence the user ID). I'm in my tenth season with the San Diego Opera chorus, as well as singing professionally at other venues locally.

Hello Everyone

I am new here although it's been almost a year since I've joined the forum. Never got around to posting until now.

Anyway, I am 42, female, married with two sons and live in the Chicago area. I had piano lessons as a child from ages 7 to 13. I played the piano on and off since 13 but never really seriously until now. I am planning to resume piano lessons this summer and looking forward to that. I'm not quite a beginner but I'm certainly not an advanced piano player. Hopefully one day I will be considered an advanced player!

I am currently working through the Anna Magdalena Bach 1725 piano book. I am trying to master the simpler pieces such as the minuets and the marches before going on to the more difficult pieces. I am currently trying to memorize the Prelude in C (my favorite piece in the book).

I like most kinds of music. With regards to piano my taste ranges from classical, gospel, jazz, pop, rock, big band, almost every type of genre.

Currently my favorite piano composers are Bach, Beethoven, Chopin, Schubert, Grieg (only because so far these composers are the ones that I have been most exposed to). I am planning to listen to more classical composers on a serious basis as well as other composers from other genres particularly jazz in the near future.

In my non-musical life I work as an actuary.

I guess its time for me to write a little about myself, after all I do spend a lot of time over here.

I'm 35, I live in Amsterdam (Holland) and I work as a software engineer for a small internet company.

As a child I was interested in everything besides school. When my sister took recorder lessons, I listened in and sometimes played on the recorder. Later we got very simple electronic organ for my mother to play (she used to play the piano as a kid), but nobody used it, except for me trying to figure out tv tunes (right hand only). All this without any lessons. Since I was doing pourly at school my parents felt that additional lessons would be too much for me...

At age 13 I got my first computer, things started to get much better in school too. I went to university to study computer science and even entered grad school. For years I forgot all about playing music.

About a year and a half ago I had this idea about buying a simple keyboard, to connect to my computer, just for fun. I never thought I would get hooked. I read a lot about music, score reading, playing etc. About 6 months later I bought a digital piano to replace my keyboard, which I sold. About the same time I broke up with my girlfriend so I quit for a while but now I'm back.

Besides the piano and my work, I love reading, movies, fotography, politics and just hanging out with friends. I also try to collect just about every book about Leonardo da Vinci.

What if I promise not to sing unless asked to?

........oh wait, it wasn't about the singing, was it?

\:D

Ps. I did successfully reassemble it with no parts left over.

Hello, I'm pretty new to this forum as a lot of you are. I'm originally from Iceland, but I have lived in 4 different continents and 5 countries in my life. I reside in Orlando Florida, but I work out of Columbus, Ohio as a captain for a regional airline.

I began taking piano lessons when I was 13 or 14. That only lasted for one year, because I wanted to become a professional skateboarder. I still played as much as I could without a teacher, but didn't play for about the last 9 years until I decided that there shouldn't be anything preventing me from reaching my goal of becoming an accomplished pianist. I'm not expecting to become Daniel Barenboim or anything, just the best I can be.

This January, I finally decided to invest in a piano. I believe it was the best thing that I ever did. My piano playing is better now than it ever was. Also, I guess, if you play piano it makes you smarter? Everything started to become a lot clearer. It's easier to concentrate at work and so on. The brain is a muscle right?

Whenever I'm at home, I don't leave the house too much, because I'll be playing Scott Joplin tunes, which is my favorite music to play. I also love Chopin, and I would like to be able to play all of his Nocturnes (the music I use as a sleeping aid) one day. In my dreams...we'll see.

Because of my job, I split the week in two places which I live, but I only have one piano. I'm currently putting money aside to buy another piano so that I won't neglect my skill;) I'm obsessed!

My other hobbies are woodworking (I 've built most of the furniture in our house and I build for friends, too [adirondack chairs and entertainment centers are my specialty]). I also love to paint, but that takes time away from the piano.

I feel like I've said too much. Oh, I'll be 32 in August. Glad to read about all of you.

Thanks, iceland767, for sharing. You've got quite the range of diverse talents! But you never told us what came of the skateboarding... ;\)

Do you have recording equipment? We didn't get much (any?) ragtime music submitted to the last recital, so I'm sure we'd love to hear from you in the upcoming one.

I'll read through all these in a wee while.

In the mean time.

I'm Ant, 18 years young and live in Blackpool.

Started piano aboot 4 days ago. Love it!
Mainly started because it just sounds so good, and is a better relaxment (is that a word?) than guitar, which I've been playing for about 3 years. I love heavy metal, punk, live music ect.
Love final fantasy! Saw Advent Children earlier today, and it is the greatest film I have ever seen.
I have the piano collections (CDs) and the music scores for Final Fantasy VII, VIII, IX, X and X - 2. Going to spend this YEAR learning how to play them. Most of them just seem too difficult to jump right into, but, I'll get the hang of them.
I like and drink beer way too much.
I'm shocked by the lack of off topicness here! (or is the law strict? heheh, you should check out thew intermusic guitarist forum, now THAT is off topic :p )

Anyway hi.

Welcome to the forum, Ant. There are quite a few Final Fantasy music fans here, as well as anime fans. If you search the archives for "Final Fantasy" (search this one and the non-classical forum, too), you'll find a fair number of threads with some good links to sheet music websites.

Yeah I have all the sheet music for all the soundtracks! \:D

I've learnt little bit from a few but must start work on full songs.

It's getting the right hand and left hand to sync! Luckily I have 3 years of guitar under my belt, so I have a good ear and finger dex. However I've been spending pretty much all day for 4 days (when I started) playing and reading thoery, so I hope I progress faster. Been reading a bit of that C CHang book, so I'll try learning the whole song left hand, then right hand, then try and put them together!

Once I get the hang of 'em I'll put up some recordings.
I have Fur Elise and Cannon under my belt now. Aswell as some of Prelude (Wohltemperierte Klavier 1-1) by Bach too.

Basically I'm striving to be the best (that I can be), so I think I should pregress pretty quickly (Not doing too bad so far ;\) ), but I know it's only a matter of time before I hit the 'Wall of Progress' heheh.

Thanks Monica. I never became a professional skater. I wanted to expand on that, but due to poor revision and sloppy editing, I didn't catch it.

I do not have recording equipment yet, but that's something that I will be looking into.

And all the furniture I make...a bunch of junk, but it works. As with the piano, I'm getting better.

I would like to do the recital eventually. I would like to submit the Maple Leaf Rag, which is my biggest accomplishment so far:) I'll need a few tries to get it just right before the recital.

Hey Anthony, I lived in Hale/Altringham (I could never figure out which) in the Manchester area. I used to go to Blackpool for amusement. I wish I could go back to live in England. It's my favorite country in the world. Don't ask me any questions about Blackpool and where I hung out, because the alcohol always made me forget.
Go Liverpool!

icekid, you should think about buying a stage piano for your second instrument. That way you can take it with you when you go on trips out of town and you can play at your other residence much sooner. A Yammy P90 only costs $1000 and a Casio is even cheaper.

Icekid: I second Bob's opinion and would like to add that late night practice is also easier on a electric. \:\) Also curious what scott joplin you have and what the best beginner books are in that area.

Hey Bob and everyone. I currently have a Yamaha CLP130, which is perfect for me right now. My girlfriend usually turns in early, so I tend to play soft tunes after she's asleep (even with headphones on, she complains when I play louder songs because the banging of the keys wakes her up).

As long as it has 88 weighted keys and acceptable sound, I don't care what it will be. I'll check out the Y P90.

Tenuki, I just have "At the Piano with Scott Joplin." I look at it as his "Best of" original work, but I'm not totally sure. I'm also not sure about which books will help you, but I used to have "The Easy way to play Scott Joplin" (I think). I didn't enjoy that book too much, because it only had parts of the songs in it. I've always had the book mentioned first and I always kept it close so that I could check when I was finally ready to play it. I still struggle a bit and I'm thinking about looking for a teacher who can teach me to play it right.
