    A Long Lost Dream

    Ever since I was a little kid, I've always dreamed of playing the piano. Everything about the piano, is just fascinating! I love closing my eyes and listening to Moonlight Sonata (mvt. 1) by Beethoven. I love seeing all the images dance around in my head. I always dreamed of...

    Super Sounds

    So Ever since, at the tender age of 5,

    I was young I wanted to learn to play the piano. An finally I did. I've been playing for 2 years and so on. My high school offers piano classes so that's where I learned and I plan to keep learning.

    I've been playing since I was 5 years old

    and now I'm 22. 17 years and I still live this instrument. I remember when I first started, I hate practicing. I would never practice for my lessons until after the 4 or 5 year I finally got that spark in me. I've played for school assemblies, outside the community, and I even...

    Lovely Keys

    Piano is my everything. I started to learn playing quite young, my mum taught me a little for a while (she was a grade 8 organ player and taught lots of kids key board). I ended up stopping playing for years because of events but when I got to secondary school I was walking...

    The piano and I go way back.

    I met her when I was 5, she was so full of pain and love. I was so overwhelmed by the feelings she brought out. I wanted to be able to feel the emotions, so mom set me up with lessons. Been hooked ever since. One good thing about having big hands, they are great piano players...

    Love Affair

    I've had an on and off love affair with the piano since I was 7 and had my first lesson. I love the way my fingers feel so graceful flying over the keys, and creating beautiful harmonies. For a couple of years I kind of went off the piano because the pressure or exams was too...

    When I sit at each ebony

    and ivory key, all 88 scream my name, whining for me to play. Each touch of my finger makes the mallet hit and force the strings to vibrate, 3-2-1, highest to lowest, pitches and resonates in the air around my ears, pushing itself deeper into my brain. Slowly memorizing...no...

    Playing The Piano Makes Life Worth Living...

    I am lucky. Though my family never had much money growing up, my grandparents gave my parents the piano their children had learned to play on when my mother was a child. As the story goes, my next door neighbor had a piano that I loved to bang on, and I started begging my parents...

    I am the pianist for my school's jazz ensemble.

    I love to fool around on the piano, learning how to solo over different L.H. bass lines and learning new exercises of how to strengthen the connection between my ear, and the music I'm playing. I found a really great sounding voicing that I'm practicing in all keys at the moment...

    Learning The Piano As A Surprise

    About January 2012 I had an idea of a way to surprise my wife for her 30th Birthday in April this year. It was simple really, take piano lessons and play her a song at the party! I looked on the Internet and found a local teacher, so I got in touch and explained my plan. She was...

    Another World

    Playing the piano makes me feel like i'm in a different world. It's a time where i forget about reality. Where you can express your emotions through the pieces you play. Expressive & beautiful.

    I feel that music is my escape.

    . I feel like playing the piano when I'm mad. Ot just makes me feel relaxed and not tense about it. It makes me think that music covers it up. Covers everything..

    I think it's a shame

    that there are only such few people who play the piano or are able to play an musical instrument after all. I feel that these people miss out on so much. It doesn't matter how long you've played or how good you are or whatever, what's important is that if you play, you become...

    I've been playing the piano

    since I was 7 years old. It's always been something really calming for me - if I feel angry or conflicted, playing the piano always seems to make me feel better. I've just gotten back into playing it again - whilst I was at school I was surrounded by Grade 8 pianists, and would...

    My Piano Experience

     When I was two years old, I experienced the piano for the first time. A woman sat down at my grandmother's piano, and started playing a hymn. To my childish ears, it sounded like water falling out of the keyboard. I was pulled to the instrument, like an iron filing to a...
