I played piano as a child and into my teens, then quit for no apparent reason. I would say I was an intermediate player then. Over the years I have played other instruments, I really wanted to be good at guitar. But I just wasn't that good, I suppose because I always expected to play pieces on guitar like I had done on piano.

Last October I bought a keyboard and jumped back in. I quickly realized that although I had lost a lot in the many interim years, I could still read music and I immediately became obsessed with playing; it is now easily my most favorite thing to do! Still sort of an intermediate, working hard at it but alone so far. This forum helps to scratch the itch for piano, it's so nice to read about others experiences and to learn from them. I have mostly been a lurker but made my first post today, followed by this one. Nice to meet you all!
