Piano

I've been playing the piano since I was six. I love playing piano. I placed second in two piano competitions. So I always wonder why I barely know anyone who plays the piano, or at least, seriously. 
 People think piano is boring and difficult. But that's like anything else! You can't give up just because starting is slow.

The only things I don't like is practicing for an hour a day and not being able to take my piano on trips with me. 

I'm practicing four pieces now-



This one is my favorite.

 


I also play this one.

What instruments do you play?


I have a cold. I don't think I'll post from Christmas Day-New Years day.

  1. I also play the piano, although I haven't been playing for nearly as long as you have. I play while the offering is being passed around my church usually on Sunday nights. Those songs that you posted are very pretty, and terrifyingly complicated. :-D

  3. I like your blog design. :D

    I've been playing piano for about 5 years, but we no longer have a teacher because no one in this podunk town offers lessons. ;-;
    I'm trying to keep playing regularly, but its hard because I never have time.

  4. I used to take violin. I didn't quit taking. We just couldn't find another teacher for me. The first one was awful, the second I couldn't take from anymore, the third moved away, and the forth was awful. After the forth, we didn't have much to choose from. There aren't many violin teahers here. =P I was really good at it too. I was first chair. (Not to brag or anything. ;D) I haven't played in so long that I'd have to really work hard to catch back up. I have considered taking it up again, but the program we would use is expensive. I want to be sure before I take it again.

  5. I play violin too!!! I also play the viola. I like both, but right now I'm playing the viola in orchestra, and I'm one of two violists. Yay Leia, First Chair!!!!!!! I'm Principal Viola in my Orchestra, and I've only been playing the viola for around six months!!!! Violin is more competitive in Orchestra, but I still play it by myself. I have been playing it for eight years now. I have alot of experience with the Violin, and I know alot more songs. That's so cool that you play piano, Amaranthine, my cousin and my sister play, and I think it's a cool instrument. Not boring at all!!
    BTW, I have a cold too. I'm just getting over it. I think that this is the first year I'm sick at Christmas.
