Last Piano Class

Today I shall be having my final piano class but it is of course not the end of playing the piano for me. I have learned enough to self learn from now on. Now that the boy has started to learn as well, I no longer have the time to learn myself as well as help two kids with their practises. Besides it is very expensive to have 3 people in the house all learning at the same time.

Piano Teacher has asked me to memorise my “Moonlight Sonata” and improve on “Save the Last Dance for Me” and “I Left My Heart In San Francisco”. She also gave me two new songs to learn last week. “Souvenir D’enfance” and “Les Fleurs Sauvages”. All for a half hour class. This is a very tall order indeed!

With that I wrap up 2 1/2 years of learning the piano. Yahoo! From now on I can just play for fun. No more practising for lessons or concerts though I shall miss playing together with my girl. We managed to “perform” at two of the piano school’s “concert” and it was a very nice experience to be playing with her. 🙂

Below is Richard Clayderman’s Les Fleurs Sauvages as played by HeartBtrue on YouTube. I wish I could play like that!

  1. I wanna learn how to play too. Think I’ll sign up for some Play By Ear thingy.. I want to play with Ethan 🙂

    When Ethan starts to learn you can start to learn too!

  2. Make time to practice and I am sure you will soon be able to do it!!!

    Not sure where to find the time now but I will try to play once in a while when I feel like it.. Must not let all those lessons go to waste must we.

  3. But you must continue to practise or else you will forget to play as time goes. I used to learn playing organ for about 8 years but I stop to further my college. Now I wonder I ever remember how to play or not. My organ has been left abandon in my parents’ house since then. Sigh! Btw, I love Richard Clayderman’s music.

    I used to play the organ when I was young too. I haven’t played for years but I think I still remember. Hehe. It is easier than the piano.

  4. You know, there are wonderful duet books available that you can play with your daughter! Your local piano store should have a selection… they have plenty that are “graded” by difficulty. Fun stuff. Duets are the most fun (and I bet so great for her, too) — if I only had a few minutes to play, and a daughter to play with, that’s what I’d do!

    I do hope you keep playing. 2 1/2 years is a great foundation! So many adults wish they could play and now you actually can! 🙂
