Yes! She says she "outgrew it" but I'd like to attribute it to my "moderating" influence thumb grin I'm just glad I don't have to listen to music with my abdomen any more! laugh


I don’t mind bass, but unrelenting bass at high volumes, without crisp articulation, is not for me, unless I just block my ears with big foam earplugs. It’s worth plugging my ears to not go deaf. I have Etymotic 15dB cut plugs that I use for all amplified concerts. Well worth $25.

It is the largest organs in your body that absorb the bass energy. The military has figured out how to pulverize those organs with low frequency sound. Isn’t that nice?

Have you ever been in a dormitory at a school for the deaf? I knew someone who lived in one, and she was a hearing person. She said that it’s about the loudest place you can imagine, with everybody trying to listen with their largest organs.

To stop wasting money and time on useless group music classes at a music school and instead seek a quality piano teacher. I couldn’t believe how much had been wasted.

The best thing I´ve learnt in music was to play by ear, to understand how music is made, chord progressions, to improvise, to make arrangements, to modify, to create real music whenever I wish, not only to repeat the frozen music from a paper.


I don´t want to learn how to play a music. I´m developing a way to play them all.

Welcome to PW, dihelson!


Thank you very much, Tyrone Slothrop. It´s a real great pleasure to be here among all these fellow musicians and people who loves music and piano. It´s incredible that I discovered it 6 years ago, but only now I had the opportunity to engage. So many good articles, so many ideas here. It´s all about what we love ! Thanks !

The #1 thing... well it's probably a culmination of things. Get a teacher (and the RIGHT teacher, one you actually not just like, but jive with) who will hit you with some reality. I've gotten several nuggets from mine, from "that's the wrong fingering for that" to "here's my log, you aren't necessarily progressing slowly, here is a piece that took me five years to learn."

But again, a teacher you actually click with is beneficial. He's a former marine, I'm a former sailor, so we can compare things to military life. When I saw him last week, I asked why I'm stuck on this and that and he said "when all you shoot at are paper targets, you get really good at shooting paper targets," basically saying "to get un-stuck, you have to practice in a different way." I understood what he meant and he gave me different hings to try. He could've given me different things to try anyway, but without that example, something I've actually experienced in real life, I'm not sure it would have stuck as well.

I suppose that's it.

TL;DR:
Get a teacher you click with who will keep your feet on the ground and tell you what you need to hear to keep you moving forward. I do use Piano Marvel and love it (especially its random sight reading feature) and the combination of that plus him has kept excited and interested.

Adding the minor scales to my warmup exercises.

I got an epiphany today when practicing the Natural Minor Scale. I had been struggling with the fingering and playing at a consistent tempo. Today everything came together once I could easily identify its relative key.

Looking forward to completing the remainder of the Circle of 5ths with their natural minor scale!
