My piano teacher recently passed me on the following pieces:
A Whiter Shade of Pale- by Keith Reid and Gary Brooker.
Piano Concerto No. 1 1rst Movement Theme- by Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky.
And I am now working on the following pieces:
Violin Sonata in E flat Last Movement Theme- by Wolfgang A. Mozart.
Do You Feel Like We Do - by Peter Frampton, John Friomos, Rick Willis and Mick Gallagher.
Moonlight Sonata First Movement- by Ludwig van Beethoven.
Moonlight Sonata: 1st movement is easy and sounds great. 2nd movement relatively easy and more joyful. But good luck with the 3rd movement, it’s insanely hard!
@Andrey, I’m having a hard enough time with the first movement thankyou. As far as the third, I don’t think I will even go there.
I am diagnosed with MCI (mild cognitive impairment). And one pdoc told me that I would never play piano at an advanced level.
I didn’t have access to a piano for long, so I don’t play it well, but I really admire those who can. Good for you. I’m particularly fond of the Tchaikovsky piece and Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata. I wrote an essay on the Sonata in a Music History class. Beautiful.
Oh you’ll be able to play it well, I’m positive.
I also came down with some sz related cognitive impairments but I can still play the piano. However I’m very lazy and fail to practice regularly.
If I’m the rabbit and you’re the tortoise, remember who won the race right?
Mozart wrote the music for TWINKLE LITTLE STAR. I learned the chords for that on mandolin and memorized it. I can play PATHETIQUE by Beethoven on my nylon string guitar.
I mostly play The Beatles on my acoustic, Nirvana and Alt Rock on my electric. I’m kinda crappy at it, but I love it.
Don’t listen to a naysayer psychiatrist! I’ve heard of a guitarist with only two fingers on his left hand who greatly influenced more than one genre. I think his name was Django.
Those are all incredible beautiful pieces
Don’t give up! I think a lot of things can be fixed with time, practice, patience, and a I can do anything I put my mind to attitude
I’m sorry to hear that. But to be honest, most people only learn the first movement and skip the other two. You’re doing great!
Acoustic and electric what?
Thankyou @Jinx . My piano teacher told me the same thing.
Moonlight Sonata is lovely
I admire your talent @SkinnyMe. I could never get into piano when I was a child as my piano teacher’s dog (named Brandy) would always snort and sniff up my skirt while I was trying to play. I might add that I used to wet my pants up until the age of 10 and this was probably the reason why Brandy was doing this lol.
Keep up the amazing work.
I’m sorry, @Sarah . You could always buy a digital piano and take up piano again now?
Keep up the good work @SkinnyMe and don’t listen to the jerk who said you wouldn’t be able to play the way you want to.
