Hi. My name is Kate56 or Gulliverh50,

I too found the site by accident. I lost two art case grand piano's to a drunk driver in a move. One M&H and a Hamburg Steinway, Toothpicks are all that are left. I came across the site while searching for a new piano.

I have retired from critical care nursing. I have played piano since I was 5, I also play violin, and cello.

But, I reallly need a new piano. I sleep really poorly and i like to practice at night. I moved to a Victorian home that has a huge parlour and dining room. All set for recitals. And no piano's.

I love to listen to music in my mind. My favorites are Chopin Ballades and Polonaises and Everything Rachmoninoff.

Looking over it all, this is when a single malt Islay Scotch helps alot. Kate.

Found this site by dumb luck too. Just happened to be googling. I'm only a few years into my piano journey so I look forward to learning as much as possible. Currently using a Yamaha Arius Digital Piano.

Howdy folks from Ezyo, I'm in The Netherlands.

Took drum lessons since age 9 up to about 16, dabbled in electronic music production since about age 12, picked up the guitar at 14, picked up the guitar again (and never put it down) at 17, got a mandolin at age 19, got a banjo at age 22 (last year) and looking for a digital piano right now. If things were only slightly different the past week or two, I might have been looking at dobros or double basses instead.

I love music (duh! :P) and find much joy in learning different instruments, trying to incorporate concepts from one instrument to the next and finding and using their strengths (or weaknesses, is sometimes very interesting) in my own slightly experimental music.

Right now, i'm stoked to get my first digital piano and start learning like I've wanted to for many years!

Hey there!
The name's Luis Rosales smile.

I've been lurking around the internet in search of forums where I can share out and improve on my piano music, and it seems like I found it. I'm a self taught (had a teacher for a few hours) pianist, on and off, since I was 8 years old and today I'm looking to improve myself a lot more! I am currently 20 and looking to improve my hearing, and look up some fingering techniques that can help me do arpeggios easier. I'm very happy to be here and share my creations with all of you, I hope you all enjoy them!

I normally post my piano music on YouTube so be sure to visit me!

I've been a longtime member but infrequent poster over at PianoStreet under the name lmpianist, so I thought it was finally time to set up an account here.

I've been playing on and off for about 25 years, sometimes with a teacher, sometimes not (currently not). To pay the bills I'm an engineer with an office job. I also ride horses and shoot archery.

I play mostly Classical & Romantic pieces. Most teachers would probably say that I'm not very well diversified when it comes to repertoire, but I don't care, I play what I like. Beethoven and Chopin are my two longtime favorites to play. I'm also very into Wagner Opera.

I have some recordings posted here: https://soundcloud.com/pianowolf

I'm stuck with a Yahama digital piano for now (CLP 110), but I would like to own a Steinway Model A sometime down the road, probably after I complete a tentatively planned move to North Carolina within the next couple years.

Saundra McLeod, new member. Thank you for the invite!

Writing from the Lone Star State of TEXAS! I play by ear, no lessons what so ever. I enjoy feeling each note mentally versus memorizing sheet music in which it becomes a "task" instead of an option.

Whats the best place to find out information regarding old Piano's? Info on the age, value, manufacture, etc...? I have an old upright carried down in the family. I have no idea of it's age and can't seem to find much on the internet about the manufacturer, Heyser. Any ideas?

Hi all,

Found PW through Googling for info about electronic pianos vs. Yammie's Silent Piano.

My name's Bert, and I'm a Dutchman living in Norway.

Started playing organs (electronic, harmonium and pipe organ) at age 8 and eventually became a classical organ player and composer before giving up a career in music for family reasons, and now, exactly 50 years after I started, I'm a mere shadow of the musician I once was.

I'm here to learn both about the piano models to go for and about which pieces to play. Haven't found a forum or thread about the latter yet, but can't imagine the subject isn't discussed.

Of course, if there is something I can contribute to the forum, then I will. I just don't have high hopes for it.

Style-wise, I've always loved classical from medieval music to Xenakis and minimal music, but the event of prog rock meant I eventually widened my scope to include both rock and jazz, and these days, I'll listen to any music that contains at least something that I like about it. I don't count chords anymore. :-)

As to my piano playing, piano was always my subject no. 2 in music college, but already then, I was severely lacking in prowess. I'll never be a good pianist, but I do want to enjoy playing simple pieces.


best,
bert

Hi!
I just joined Piano World forums yesterday.
I've come across it a few times before because it comes up in google search results sometimes when looking up related topics, and I decided to finally join in.
I'm currently a college student majoring in music performance but I am also currently training to be a piano technician!

Hello,

My name is Andrew. I've been playing piano for about a dozen years; I'm 28 currently and plan on going to graduate school for music in the next few years. I hope to learn some new things here, as well as listen to some fantastic pieces. Composition is something I've wanted to dip my toes in.

Thanks,
Andrew

Hello I am Christian,

I joined this forum to finally talk to other pianists and to socialize. I have been playing since I was 6 years old and now I am looking for techniques and other music related topics. This forum will also be an inspiration to keep saving for that acoustic piano I need. smile

Hi everyone!
So I'm new here today. First post.

I'm Andrew, and I'm 49. I live in Milton Keynes UK - where I run a private piano teaching studio. I teach students of all ages and abilities, with about 50% of my students being adult learners. I've been teaching for about 20 years. Some of my students have gone on to music careers, but hopefully many more of them have gained a lifelong enthusiasm for listening and playing.

Background wise... I started playing when I was 9, became fairly obsessed with music throughout the rest of my childhood, and studied music at the University of Birmingham and then as a postgraduate at the Royal College of Music, London.

Some of you may have come across my blog/website http://pianodao.com which covers all aspects of our journey as pianists and in life.

I look forward to getting to know others here!

Hey everyone!

I'm Doran, 14, and I found this site whilst googling. I read the site for about a month as a guest before I decided to make an account.

I've been taking piano lessons since I was 3 years old, and my favourite composer is Chopin!

I studied both the yamaha(stopped) and abrsm(still doing) syllabus.

When I'm not learning or practicing my abrsm exam pieces/songs in my sig, I like to transcribe game or anime soundtracks! They can be found at https://musescore.com/user/5365921 and www.youtube.com/user/doranoon10

Part of my love for piano is due to the anime Your Lie In April, and it also introduced me to the songs in my sig.

I'm a grade 6 in Yamaha and a lowly grade 5 in abrsm, but I think my technical skill surpasses that, learning Chopin's Etudes.

Oh well, enough about me. Now it's your turn to share! smile

Hi, I'm Kate, I turn 17 this January. I've seen this forum and browsed it a lot but finally decided to join. I'm very much a beginner, I've only been playing for a year.
I was inspired by Billy Joel to learn and finally did get a keyboard and start taking lessons shortly after I seen him in concert last year December 5th. I learned some of Miami 2017 by Billy Joel on the piano and played it for the talent show at our school and got second place. Anyways just about a week ago I got a 1960's Wurlitzer Spinet and I'm completely in love and couldn't ever see myself quitting.
Take care.

Hi

I have been around PW for some time but never found this place. I though it's nice to introduce myself smile

I come from Poland but currently live in UK. I am an adult who found piano a great passion two years ago. It begun just after listening of some songs of talented artists such as Steve Wonder, Billy Idol, The Piano Guys, etc. I realised I want to and I had to do that. So two years ago I bought Yamaha P105 and ever since I have not regretted this decision.

I found a music school where I attend one day a week. Since then, I have barely missed practising, although I must admit I have had my highs and lows. Learning goes very slowly but I try to play every day with hope that one day I will achieve at least something to play simple classical pieces.

My musicianship has already been widen / increased. As such, I started to listen to pieces of a few classical composers. At first, the purpose was just to develop my listening skills. I don't remember when I realised I actually fell in love with Romantic music and and Chopin is just fantastic; I never miss a day without listening to him. I am afraid it doesn't help me though as I wish I could play his pieces which are so much technically demanding. I am afraid I cannot share this passion friends of mine. They think I am crazy :p and some of them even think it's waist of time.

I hope this forum will inspire me by reading posts. I also hope I can ask basic questions here as most of you are either professional piano players or very skilled musicians who started to play so early.

I have an upright at home and a casio px350 for travel/recording. I am trying to put together an album but I am intertwined in the copyright and legality of things...Kind of makes me not want to publish any of my songs...anyhow, please shoot me a message if you'd be interested in hearing some of my music! Thanks

Hello dear friend,

my name is Alex, 23 years old, student living in Maastricht, born in Bavaria (Germany). I came to this forum because I started composing music half a year ago and I would realy like to hear peoples opinions on my first release. I played the piano before I was composing but it didn't give me the same satisfaction. I recorded it with a yamaha P-95 and then the midi-notes where played by a piano VST (Vienna Imperial), finalized by mastering the soundtrack.

Hi All,

I'm a new member, just joined today.

My musical road has been interesting, to say the least. I started classical piano when I was 8 years old, and like everyone else practiced by 1-2 hours a day. I got pretty good and enjoyed playing, but I *hated* recitals. Around 16 I threatened to quit, so mom sent me to another teacher - a rock and roll/blues keyboardist. Completely turned my world around. I learned all the theory and techniques I never got with classical, especially improvisation. After him I joined my first band, but never gave up playing classical in my spare time. After 20 years playing in bands with classical on the side, I all but gave up piano to build a career and family; until, on a whim, I bought a digital piano.

That was a couple years ago. Odd how things come around -- I'm back to playing 1-2 hours a day. I've relearned most of my old pieces and tackling new ones now, almost exclusively Bach. I love Bach. That transcending moment from slogging through the notes and fingering to understanding the polyphonies and beautiful emotion is euphoric. Most interesting to me is how differently I approach learning, tackling, understanding, and ultimately playing a piece now compared to when I was a kid.

Anyway, great to be on a forum with like-minded musicians! - John A.

I am already playing church from the casual skills I acquired through seeing others play, ask and try do play the same sound I heard in Key Ab and Db. I love music so much so I discovered this site while searching the Web from other players tips of playing nicely in my church. I do it as part of my worship to God.

Well, I missed this thread when I started posting a little while ago. I will soon be getting back to playing the piano regularly for the first time in many years. I had lessons from age 6 or 7 through 17, then for the last 30-odd years have played only sporadically, not having room for a piano for most of that time. But now I do have the room, and more importantly the desire and commitment to become a better musician, and next week I will have a piano. I'm arranging for lessons with a primary goal of developing a better technical foundation than I have had hitherto. In that regard I will be a beginner again, which is exciting.

Hello my friends, colleagues, and betters.
My name is Kenneth B. I started playing the piano around 3 because I found myself fascinated and drawn to this great instrument. I took lessons for around 4 months but stopped because I thought the teacher was too slow. Ultimately, I'm self taught and have played Chopin, Rachmaninoff and Liszt etudes. Early on I was drawn to Chopin and would listen to Rubinstein's Nocturnes/Polonaises hundreds of times with great joy. I had the great luck of living on the East Coast and was able to go to Carnegie hall, Avery Fisher, and the 92nd St Y countless times and see fantastic performances. I was a big fan of Pollini before he became popular and would you believe had front row seats at Carnegie right at the keyboard at numerous performances for a mere $6 back in the day. The hall was only half full for him back then as well. Similarly, I saw Earl Wild, Lazar Berman, Gyorgy Sandor, Gilels, Malcuzynski, Shura Cherkasky (beautiful tone like no other albeit Moravec came close) to name a few. I'm a physician now and sadly my daughter has little interest in the piano and hope my son will but he's already 4 and I had a significant attraction to it by that age and he does not.
What I've learned here and watching youtube videos from Barenbaum etc., is that piano playing is not as easy as I originally thought. I thought you read about the composer get an idea their life and times grab a score and let your instincts take over. But this is not the case. What is really involved is deep analysis and understanding of harmonics and theory which frankly is way beyond me. I love Bach's 48 but recently found a site here with analysis of the fugues which literally floored me. I never imagined the level of complexity and layers and frankly ulterior objectives one must think of to truly bring justice to these pieces. I guess I've been naïve over the years although this of course will not deter my love for this great instrument and music. My all round favorite pianist is Alfred Cortot because frankly he played everything well. Nowadays I have quite a few I like for different reasons say Schiff, Volodos, Pletnev, Hamelin etc. There is an up and coming artist who is the new Argerich for sure, HJ Lim and she's quite talented to say the least. I don't agree with all her performances but nevertheless tip my hat to her. Check her out.
My best to all here and much joy and love.

Hi! I really wanted this post, a place to introduce myself and go on.
So thanks.

I am a 15 year old pianist from Greece, now during my 11nth year of piano studies.
I seriously plan on focusing on music studies when the time comes and I am really into any type of concert, competition or any other way of showing off grin (just kidding) I just like to do the best I can. I am currently working on Mozart's 10nth sonata and Rondo Caprizzioso be Mendelssohn. I also love Ludovico Einaudi's work for piano and hope someday I will be able to perform it live
Pleased to meet you all.

Hello,

I don't know if I will post anything other than this, but I might as well post here. I don't really know how I discovered this site, to be honest.

I am a 22 year old university student studying subjects related to math, physics, and computer science. I have been playing the piano since I was 5 years old, and I have a LRCM from the Royal Conservatory of Music in Canada. During my piano studies, I have performed at a number of music festivals and a few concerts, but since I stopped taking piano lessons a few years ago, I haven't found many opportunities to perform.

The piano I have at home is a Yamaha Clavinova digital piano. It is a decent instrument, and it's great to practice with headphones and not have to tune it, but I would definitely like to get a real piano at some point (and maybe some recording equipment), which is definitely not happening until I get some sort of income (i.e. almost certainly not for at least 2 years). Maybe you guys will help me once I get to that point.

I am currently working on a whole bunch of pieces, but my main focuses right now are Beethoven's Waldstein sonata and Liszt's piano transcription of Bach's fantasia and fugue in G minor for organ.

Hello ! Sam, from Québec, Canada. I think Piano music is a beautiful science. I have a passion for this Instrument, but I am no pianist at all. Here is a video that my friend recorded for his university project in wich I screwed around on a Liszt piece. I already like this forum !

Classical trained I want to share some music and talk music with nice people.
I plan on launching video advice one day, sure it may help some people.
That's it !

Good care!

Hallo, PianoWorld,

just want to briefly introduce myself.

I started playing piano at the age of six (which lies a very long time ago), later taught myself harmonics and started composing in different styles. In spite of my music teacher's recommendation, I did not study music but became a chartered chemist. I never quit playing piano, though, and apart from classical music like to play pop music and jazz standards.

I recently contributed a couple of recordings to the IMSLP, since - being a non-professional pianist - I don't give concerts or get the opportunity to perform elsewhere.
