    Default I'm neww!!

    Hi my name is Lisa, I'm from New Jersey. I've been playing piano for almost 11 years. Even though Im only 17, i LOVE classical music. I can't get enough of it, and most people think its odd that a high school student like me would be so interested in it.
    I just came here to find people who actually know what I'm talking about when I say "yea i love chopin's etudes".....instead of getting "Whats an etude, Lisa?" ya know... hahah hopefully someone can save me from these people!!!

    I was also wondering if anyone had any recomendations of colleges with solid music prgrams in the NY/NJ area. I'm already looking at The college of NJ, NYU, and Mason Gross. input is appreciated!

    Welcome on the Board, Lisa!

    I know this problem you are talking about. Almost the same in the highschool I was in.

    So my question is: what etude are you working on? What other pieces...are you planning to do music as profession?

    I hope you'll enjoy the board, and again, welcome!

    Hi Daniel, thanks for the welcome. Yes, I'd like to be come a music teacher eventually. For my college auditions, I'm preparing Chopin's "Cello" Etude in C# minor, (not certain of the number off-hand.) I'm also playing the first movement of Mozart's Sonata in F Major, and of course you've got to have a Prelude and Fugue from WTC. They are also in F Major. Other than my college pieces, I'm attempting to learn Mendelssohn's Piano Concerto in G Minor. Great piece but pretty difficult!
    What instruments do you play? Is music your profession or just a hobbie?

    Talk to you soon

    The Mendelssohn concerto! Great as any Mendelssohn! (I have to say that, because I am Mendelssohn-enthusiast )

    Well, I am composing and playing piano and violin. My plans are going to a composition study, but I failed with the entry exams for this time after I did the entry exam after my graduation in highschool (in one city I passed the exam, but didn't get a place and in another city I was not accepted).

    So I'll start musicology now and will make a new try with composition as soon as possible.

    The "Cello-Etude" is the slow one with the wonderful left hand-cantilenes, right?
    And the Mozart, I think there are 3 F-major sonata's, so what sonata exactly?

    Good luck and keep us informed about the going-on and the results!

    Greetings,
    Daniel
