I'm starting to play piano again after about 13 years without playing. Before that, I played around 10 years when I was a child from 5 to 15. So, it is a little bit particular because piano was a synonym of heck for me at that time (I was forced to play by my parents) and I really hated it.
Anyway, the time made his affair, and since some years now, I feel attracted by the piano and that I can play and really take pleasure doing it, and sharing it. I collected different scores during these years of songs that touched me and I would like to play when I would start again.
That day arrived recently. At my new job, which started around 5 months ago, they have this beautiful grand piano that everyone can use. That was so unlikely, I had to try it
So I started to play, with one of the grades I had : the Turkish march from Mozart. I struggle to play it as I would like to play it, with all the variations, nuances,controlling each note etc, and above all I would want to be able to play it without having to focus on the technical part - and just feeling the music - which I think is not possible with my current level.
I feel I miss technical skills. I do everything instinctively, I don’t have any base of technical things I think I should have (especially when I read you guys a little.) For example, I struggle for things as basic as writing fingers on the score (I found a score with them for this problem).
I think when I was a child, I was just not listening at all to my teacher, for the reasons I mentioned before. So I didn't put words on his methods in my head, I don’t remember anything. I’am in a strange case where I think I have a decent level - but my technical knowledge about how to play well is near 0. And I probably do a lot of things in a very bad way haha.
I will definitively take a teacher, but currently the Covid crisis makes me think that won’t be possible before some months. I bought a keyboard (Yamaha P-125) to practice during the confinement. This is why I come here, if you guys have any advice to help in my situation. Maybe some had the same situation and would have some nice advice ?
Thanks for reading me
