I am a new member to this forum, but I have watched my family use it over the past year. It seems that everyone here is interested in promoting the arts and are very open to new ideas.

It is great that there are so many wonderful categories, but as a teenager, I would appreciate there being a board that would let me see what other people my age are doing in the arts.

After browsing the forum for the past few hours, I stumbled across a few posts written by other teenagers. There are people my age who are as involved (or more) in the arts as I am, but there is no easy way for me to discuss things with them.

I look forward to seeing what your response is to this. Thanks!

A while ago, a few members (adult beginners as they called themselves) came together. They went to king of the forum (Frank) and requested that a few forum be formed called 'Adult Beginners' forum. Today it boasts many happy members. They do some wonderful things like take part in online recitals, practice logs, and study groups.

I suggest that you post this request in that forum and the pianists corner and see if there are many young people who do support and learn from this forum. In the meantime you can enjoy both forums.

artsobsessed, we encourage you to come and visit our Adult Beginners Forum smile It's not only for adults as in old! The age range is quite wide there, and we all help each other and talk a lot about things. I myself am only 20 at the time. I think you could enjoy our forum just as we do, and participate in our recitals and piano bars, where, along discussion threads, we share our music and passion smile

I appreciate your replies. I used the Adult Beginners forum once, but I always thought that it wasn't meant for teenagers. Thank you for telling me this, because I had no clue. I'll make sure and enjoy those forums now!

Treat "Adult" as in "not from the very childhood" and you'll be fine :-D

there are also many young talented piano students in the pianist corner..

perhaps not so far from 'youth'.

And some, like my son (who is artsobsessed's age), just don't seem to get into the 'forum spirit' very often. Oh well.

Wow, apple, 14K posts.

Welcome to the forum, artsobsessed! smile By all means the AB forum (and the pianist corner) are the place for you. Debussy20 (Matt) is only, what, 14?, but he's already become one of our most-appreciated regulars.

One of the neatest things about internet forums is that you get to know and relate to people from all demographic brackets and walks of life.

We have a thread on AB forum where we invite new members to post an introduction to themselves. Check it out:

Usually forums are created because of sufficient thread volume and interest to warrant it. Honestly, I don't see too many teens here, so I'm not optimistic they'll create one. The teens I have seen, though, have incredible maturity and, if they hadn't stated, their age or described their school/parent situations, I wouldn't have been able to tell the difference.

I don't think you should feel self conscious about being younger in any of the forums here. Everybody is pretty friendly and helpful, all brought together by a common thread - the piano. Participate in some of the discussions - you'll see what I mean.

You sound pretty mature and I think you'd fit it well.

If you do want to talk to just teens about music, you could [url=http://www.teenspot.com/boards/showthread.html?t=228457go to a forum like this[/url], but you can quickly tell the conversation take on a much different tone. Not sure if that's what you were looking for, though.
