Long-term Goals: My Piano Progress

I’ve talked before about my interest in mastering the piano in my lifetime.  Without getting too much into it, I’ve always been attracted to the piano.  Whenever I’d get near one, I always wanted to press its keys — despite the fact that I didn’t know how to play anything.

For the bulk of my life, I envied anyone that was musically talented.  I was jealous of those who could bust out piano songs like they were pros.  Eventually, though, I became fed up with simply wishing that I could play piano, and started actually learning.

I got my first keyboard for Christmas in 2005, and have slowly been working my way up ever since.  I’ve had a few different instructors, a few different teaching styles, and a few different instruments.  Check out my piano progress in the video below:

I love this video because I sometimes forget about your old apartment(s) and it is kind of cool to see the setting and you and your piano skills evolve!

Wow, what an awesome improvement! Kudos!

I teared up a bit when the song really got started. I figured you might appreciate that.

May I share this on FB? I have a bunch of friends who would like your musical choices(BIG shock, I know!) Particularly the Ronfaure piece.

Great progress! More importantly is that you found a way to participate in something you enjoy. Too many people are content to be spectators, but getting into the game is the best way to enjoy.

We watched the video, great improvement since you started. Enjoyed it so much. Always wanted to learn the piano too, but was no good at it, tone-deaf. Oma, papa and I enjoyed it a lot. Have not read your site for over a year, don’t know why I did today. Glad you are fine. Greetings to Cassie and her family too. Oma got 69 cards as of today. We love you.
