    Impossible task to do... to stretch those fingers a bit more. It seems impossible but with my experience with piano so fat, many things seemed to be impossible and now are doable and I believe with patience and continues practice it will be at some point great. So, arm yourself with patience and joy to PRACTICE, PLAY and LEARN. We will get there! HAVE FUN! PLAY!

    Though more seldom here, I mean me, I hope you still cherish that fire in your heart to practice. After all it is the only way to get better and discover what you can do. PLAY!

    Hi everyone, I'm a new member looking for some advice. I used to learn the piano as a kid, but gave up along the way and now I'm keen to start playing again as an adult. My skills are pretty rusty, any good songs/pieces to recommend for a beginner to intermediate level? Thanks all!

    Hello Siennnn. Not sure if you want classical or popular music or a mixture. Visit your music store, they should have plenty of music books in stock for beginners.

    My tutor started me off with John Thompson's - Adult Preparatory Piano Book.

    Also recommended , you can buy or subscribe to the 'Pianist Magazine' , which has beginners to intermediate pieces in it... I found it very good.

    That should get you going!

    Yes, I am fine Rogerx. Thank you for asking. Had quite few challenges, but everything ended up well. Of course I was as always occupied with pianos. Yes, plural... I said pianos, because couldn't be in my location and struggled a lot to have my hands on the keys. Luckily, had a chance to play two pianos and one grand piano (only once) and practice what I just uploaded. It wasn't perfect time to practice, but still if you really want something you can find ways of doing it. Unfortunately, after coming back to my old friend - my piano - I've noticed how bad it sounds, how bad are keys and had three days of horror to use it again. It is a necessity now to organise better piano for myself. One day it will happen.
    Anyway, below is the piece of music by Ludovico Einaudi "I Giorni" I was trying to put together as best as I could with help of online teacher this time. I am trying new approaches and I am almost off PM app that lead me to this stage.
    I hope you will (whoever will watch/listen to it) enjoy. With fingers crossed (not when playing) I am looking forward for more. Comments more then welcome.


    Ps. I am back and hungry for MORE! As always: PLAY and ENJOY!
