    i play modern stuff like 100 years and clocks but i also love stuff like fur elise (your right, i hate it when the newbys stuff it up!) fantasie impromtu, the blue danube, moonlight sonata and ronda alla turca. (my faves)
    anyone ever tried writing their own stuff btw? do you write the music first and the lyrics after or the other way around? i've written a few pieces but this is where i get stuck lol.

    Re: Playing the piano

    I use to play the piano, though stopped taking lessons in year 9
    too time consuming tbh

    but I still play every now and again, albeit at a more crap level

    Re: Playing the piano

    i used to play from year 7-9.

    YouTube - Präludium BWV 999 was my favourite song (but i played it 10000000x better than this dude), still remember bits of it.

    i should teach myself how to play that song sometime..

    Re: Playing the piano

    I never had an opportunity to play the piano until I was 10, when we got a 2nd hand keyboard. I started playing random songs on it and then I was given an easy sheet music book. Soon I started going to lessons and then my piano teaher ws a bit weird and too hard to get to so I found a new one who was really nice and had lessons from her up until end of last year. But now I am teaching myself the piano. I passed 5th grade but I don't do exams anymore, but I can play 7th Grade peices. I also hate classical peices, I like jazz way more, but I can play Cannon in D. I'm playing the Sims themes atm they rock!

    No, but I wish I could.
    The most I can play is Twinkle Twinkle Little Star.

    Re: Playing the piano

    i played to about 4/5th grade and then quit, but i still play fairly often.

    and i play trombone and guitar heaps... so that helps i think.

    music is a great stress reliever.

    same! I was dragged into playing piano from when I was like 6-7 years old and played till I was 12 years old. Then I stopped because I was sick of getting a tutor.

    But now I regret it...=(

    I envy my brother who can play piano, guitar, drum + saxophone! damn him!

    After HSC, I am going to get tutored by my brother. ohhhhhhhh joyyyy

    Re: Playing the piano

    I can play, i went into lessons in primary school, though i wasn't forced. I always loved it, i took up drums in year 10 and i played the piano less and less and i realy don't play much at all at the moment, i'm hoping to get back into it after the HSC.

    Re: Playing the piano

    I LOVE playing the piano. It's so versatile.

    I watch Whose Line is it Anyway? (reruns) and I love playing the Hoedown music and humming famous verses. I recently discovered a piano rendition of the UEFA Champions League Anthem/Zadok the Priest - and that's my new quest. Other than that, I'm loving playing things like Musette, Comedian's Dance, and jazzed up renditions of spirituals.

    It's awesome. I used to not like it, but really - once you find a commercial use for it, like being able to play songs that you yourself choose, it becomes more fun.

    Sorry for the double post, but I just had to comment.

    Not at my school it's not, louy. The girls go for the guys who play instruments of lesser difficulty like... guitars and *shivers* drums. Not piano.

    I suppose you can deduce the girls where I go to are amused by simple things, and therefore will lead simple lives... simple, painful, debt-filled lives =P

    Re: Playing the piano

    I was forced into playing the Piano and Violin bribed by the fact I'll get Happy Meals after each lesson. =(

    But its a good thing my rents forced me into it, because I now realise my talents and I have stuff I could do when I'm bored to the bones. =]
