Loc: Kent, UK

A little late, as I registered some weeks ago, I'm Simon from the UK. I started learning the Piano at about age 7, 8 or 9, back in the late 1960s. I had formal classical lessons at that age, and as an adult have had lessons with two professional Jazz Pianists. In the late 80s I took up classical Guitar and my teacher became a good friend, and for fun I took grade 6 and grade 7 Piano (abrsm), passing the first and failing the second as I hadn't practiced the scales enough! I've studied music academically with the Open University at honors degree level, which helped to complete my BA with them and to obtain their music diploma in 2004. I've played semi-professionally and in various blues and Jazz bands, though I am not a good Jazz Pianist.

As the above probably shows I play a variety of styles. I can read reasonably well and have been working on Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition of late. But sit me down at the Piano without music and ask me to play something I'm most likely to play a 'simple' 12 bar blues in G. That's enough about me...

Piano players that I've listened to a lot, that have influenced my playing are:
Keith Jarrett
Dr John
Elton John
Jerry Lee Lewis
Professor Longhair
Oscar Peterson
Michel Pettrucianni

(I can't play like any of them!)

The forum is a great resource and some of the discussions are very informative and helpful.

Grade 6 Piano a long time ago, Grade 4 Guitar an even longer time ago, Tenor Sax, just awful.

Hello,I'm a new member to this forum.
I've recently starting taking piano again after an incident with a previous dishonest piano teacher.My new teacher told me that my previous lessons were not concise and detailed,and my playing lacks many aspects.
I hope to obtain more insight towards playing the piano from this forum.
I'm currently using a secondhand upright Yamaha piano,practising on odds days for short periods when i'm at home wink
