Wow. Are you self taught, or did you take heaps of piano lessons?
I am self taught, but cannot read music (well I can at a very, very slow rate), but quite a few people have told me that I play my own compositions to grade 8 standard. If I can do this, do you think I can get up to grade 8 music reading standard quite quickly?
I hate the exams. Argh! I did my Grade 5 a term ago, only because I had to in order to start doing my grade 8; I just haven't been doing grades for years because of all other stuff in my life...
Fave Piece: Adieu to the Piano - Beethoven. Also Die Moldau - Smetana.
do you mean grade 5 theory?
I would like to join please! I'm taking my grade 8 next Friday and am very scared! I think my favourite piece to play would be Arabesque number 1 by Debussy (and most other things by him) but i think the Pathetique Sonata by Beethoven is beautiful, although i havent accomplished that one! I also love playing Nocturne in E flat from Chopin - that's beautiful
nice, which pieces are you playing?
I played the Scarlatti, Beethoven Sonata, and Intermezzo by Schumann.
it's very quiet in here [/pun]
