I'm a little lost as to where to introduce myself.. so I hope this spot is okay
I am an older adult - a grandson, a granddaughter on the way & wrinkles to prove it lol.
I have had 2 years of lessons now, but I did have 2 years of lessons as a teenager which gave me a little kick start - I was surprised at what I remembered, so long ago now. I'm taking the plunge and studying for my 4th grade "piano for leisure" exam. This is my first exam, as originally I told my teacher I wasn't going to do any exams, but, well, here goes!
just thinking about it gives me sweaty palms I'm scared to death!
The pieces I've chosen are:
Mozart - Andante Sonata K545
C.Bach - Solfeggio
Chopin - Minute Waltz Op64No1
My exam plan is to get all three technically correct (by May) then refine by end July (exam). I'm trying not to self doubt, but I can't help but wonder if/how!
I've been playing on a Casio keyboard and an old upright piano. I have just bought a Kawai GM-12 baby grand (it's 5 years old music shop demo) and I am nearly wetting my self waiting for it's arrival in about 2 weeks time.
I'm not sure what else to say? LOL
Looking forward to meeting new friends
& hopefully learn/be inspired along the way.
