It's Fun to Play the Piano ... Please Pass It On!
I enjoyed hearing him play....years ago I had the occasion to play a piece during lunch hour in Australia.....I have to tell you I was dumbfounded that everyone was so appreciative that all talking stopped and you could hear a pin drop.....I was so moved I couldn't bring myself to play another piece.....I was hoping the same respect would be shown for your teacher.
Yes, I know what you are talking about. I have played in many restaurants over the years and the piano is not meant to be the focal point......but my hope was that because it was being posted on you-tube the listeners would have been more focused on the experienced pianist. In any case, I enjoyed it. With my experience in Australia it made me feel the people, in general, had a high regard for music and for hearing a pianist play live.
Hi Rerun, I begane at 5 with civic school Music but I didn't like much piano and after 7 years I stopped to play piano.
At 16 years old after viewing "Legend of 1900" I began again to play piano, but with M.o Tino (that was mi Father's piano teacher).
M.o Tino used to say "often people go to School music for years and years without learning nothing. Contrarily could be enought "guidances" or "advices" (like m.o. Tino love to say) of some hours to learn music "
Have you catch the idea? He studied for years classic music with Maurizio Pollini's teacher... M.O Tino's brother was a piano player at Scala Theater of Milan.
