I Used to Play the Piano

    Memories!

    I use to play piano. My favorite pianists that I looked up to were Chopin and Beethoven... Chopin more so, though. And when I was 13, my parents got me an piano and placed it in the basement. No, they didn't think I played badly! It was the only place for it, since the huge...

    Longing

    I played the piano for 12 years. After many years of lessons, I did play it a little bit for my own enjoyment, finding tunes to play around with. I loved the feeling of my fingers on the keys, the coordination, reaching the octaves, and finding an inspirational part of a piece...

    About Age 5

    The family went to see The Sound of Music.  When we arrived home, apparently I sat down at the piano and began playing one of the tunes from it.  I'd had no real coaching before, but must've had some time to figure out where the notes were.  They were a bit...

    I used to play the piano. I was 5 when my parents bought it. I liked the high black keys. I made "Chinese music". I began lessons...it was ok...something to do. I always felt like a fake. I would get so bogged down in errors. There were lots of good moments though...

    I grew up taking piano lessons,

    mostly because of my grandmother, but I enjoyed it, and I still enjoy all kinds of piano music

    Forgot It All

    I used to play the piano, for a good 5-6 years actually. I don't know why I gave it up. Maybe it was because it was something my parents wanted me to do, and me being the rebellious teen didn't want to do anything they wanted me to do, even if I once loved it. I just wanted to...

    I started playing piano

    when I was about 4. My parents got one for my brother, and so I wouldn't be jealous, they put me in lessons too. I surpassed my brother. And for about 10 years I played. But it got too much for me. I stopped playing. I may return to it sometime, but I'm enjoying my time off...
