Yiruma,one of my favorite pianist. I started to play piano since two years ago, I have spent a lot of time to watch youtube piano tutorial to learn his piece, now I wouldn't say I'm fluent in any respect, but I learn it enough to get real joy from them

The most important purpose of this post is I need some reviews and comments for me in order to improve myself. A Big Thanks to you for watching my video and hope you will enjoy it. And

Nice job. Alston9981, you might also want to cross-post this to the non-classical Piano Corner and get some opinions there. smile

Alston, That was really quite nice. I listened to both. I think you're doing well. Are you learning to read sheet music? I think that would the next step, if not, as it will enable you to play such a nice variety in the future.

You are doing really well for two years. Nice job. That is nice to hear no matter how long you have played piano.

That’s so beautiful! Sometimes working toward a single piece can really motivate you to learn. Have you read Piano Lessons by Noah Adams? It is a memoir about him learning to play the piano so he could play a particular piece he loved. You did a great job with River Flows in You. I’ve always wanted to learn that piece but have never picked it up.
