 Hi, my name's Mira. I live in Sofia (Bulgaria) now but I was born in Warsaw (Poland). I play the piano 10 years now. I'm preparing for the Music Academy in Warsaw, or in Katowice, or Poznan... I don't mind the city but it has to be in Poland. I take academic piano lessons. Though I'm still a high school student I have exams in the Music Academy in Sofia every  year for the last 5 years. My dream is to be a concert pianist and it's about to become a reality soon. I've taken part in several competitions. My goal is to win Fryderyk Szopen International Competition (That's the way Chopin's name is written in Polish).
 I spend all my time playing. I have time for fun only at night.
 My favorite composer ever is Chopin. Not only because I was born in his country, but because I LOVE his music...
 Well that's all for me I think. If anyone of you has any questions can ask me here or in the  messengers. The information is in the profile.
 Mira
Music is life... my life!

Wow. I don't know why but I just felt left out of this introduction of many other pianists. So let me just break down the basics of who I am:

My name is Connie. I was born, raise and residing at New York. I just had my birthday recently so I am offically the age of 15 which means I am an incoming sophmore in high school. I'm an A.B.C. (American Born Chinese). Excluding piano, I also love to do graphic and web designing, reading, being with my friends, sleeping, eating, watching TV, talking online, shopping, listening to music of all kind, and many other activities.

I have played the piano for approximately more than 7 years. Before I played the piano, I had an option of choosing a class to attend. It was either ballet or piano. Of course, I am difficult at deciding so my parents decided piano and here I am, still attending piano classes. I have a large passion of piano, even though at times it is fustrating. I admire composers like Chopin, Mozart, Beethoven, etc. that made me dream of becoming an admiring pianist in the future. And maybe a teacher...

hi. i'm Alvin from Malaysia. currently 18 years old.
i've been learning the piano since i was 7, and stopped a few times.
i finished my grade 8 ABRSM and i'm currently doing the ATCL performance diploma.
i haven't been serious in playing piano last time, but now i want to become good. can anyone suggest how long should i practise everyday? i can't seem to sit down for more than 30mins.

should i be practising scales too?

how can i improve my 'play by ear' skills? as in, what kind of 'fill-ins' to put.. or any arpeggios .. anything that looks/sounds cool.

Yes, especially if you have not studied them in the past.  :)

I think you just answered your own question... play anything that looks/sounds cool.  ;D ;)

Hi, I'm Ella, and I'm 14.
I've been playing piano since I was 4, but I stopped for 5 years when I was 8 and have only just started learning again. I also learnt Suzuki method when I was little, burn it, it was horrible.

I am about to sit my grade 4 AMEB exam, but I like playing grade 6-8 level pieces, they are much more fun.
My favourite composer would have to be Debussy or Mozart, and my favourite songs to play by each of them are Claire de Lune and Fantasie in D minor respectively.
As for listening to music I like listening to orchestral and piano music, and pretty much any classical without annoying loud brass instruments. Non classical I like My Chemical Romance and Evanescence (yes, I know they're 'emo' I don't care)

Hi everyone! I'm meiyi from Singapore. First of all, my apologies for posting my search for Henrah on the forum...

anyway,  I'm 28 and a high school teacher. Used to be crazy about piano music and joined an amateur piano ensemble which plays 4 hands work during my university days. but ever since i have started working, I've hardly touched my piano. Time to change all this. Looking forward to learn from all you piano music lovers out there.  :)

Hi folks

I play the piano since circa one year, maybe, a bit longer, but I used to study autodidactic and half a year ago, I began to take piano lessons. I started playing the piano because I had some strong musical experiences with Beethoven and Schubert and so I started to parctice and I tried to learn everything by myself...

I live in Basel, Switzerland, and I am in my 13th schoolyear, one year lasting until my "Matura" (I don't know something comparable in other continents or countries)

And now I'm very addicted of the pianoforum :D

Hajimemashite!! Watashiwa boxOFjuixe desu! dozo yoroshiku~! XD wahaha I'm an AMG (Anime MAnga Games)freak. Istarted playing last year~ and I had just passed with distinction fer my grade 1 exam (applause please!) ^_^

I started playing because I wanted to play Fur Elise!! I'm like OBSESSED by it! XD oh yeahh I started playing cuz I wanted to be able to play some anime theme songs and I have these silly notions of wishing to be able to be good at piano so that I can have "freedom of expression" or something like that. Thing is, I want to MAKE something. ANYTHING at all, as long as it's from ME.

I draw and write too~ ^_^ the only thing I can't do is sing. Oh yeah, and cook..-__-; which sucks.

Piano piano~ dum di dum~ I named mine Shizumasa(elegant) and imagine that there's a spirit posessing it! Lol. Yeah, I'm a freak. The spirit is a keanu reeves look alike who plays Fur Elise over and over again when I stare at my piano. Naturally, i'm the only one who can see and talk to him~

Hi everybody! I've been reading this forum for some time now and I thought it might be about time to register.. I'm 17, from Sweden and I have been playing the piano since I was 9. For many years I was unmotivated and quite uninterested in playing but when I was 15 I started getting a lot more serious. I love Debyssy's and Chopin's piano music but I also like listening to orchestral music. This forum is a great place and so far I've found it very useful!

Hi folks, my name is Rob and I'm another person who has been reading this forum for quite a while before joining. I'm 25 have been a casual (lazy!) pianist since I was 7, (with a few years at uni where I was without a piano) but a year and a bit ago, I started listening to 'classical' music (I hadn't before) and came across dozens of pieces I wanted to learn (some easy, some stupefyingly difficult) and as a result I am on a mission to improve rapidly. Fitting this in with jobs and things is proving to be no mean feat however.

well, I guess I should have done this first.  Just joined a few days ago.  I'm re-learning the piano.  Had lessons for a couple of years back in the days when the *original* Batman was on TV and the quality of the picture was dependent on wiggling the rabbit ears:)  Have played off and on my whole adult life - but mostly not correctly.  Just reading the top and cording the bottom and following the tune because I knew the song.  Finally stumbled on to a piano a few weeks ago after 10 years without one.  My real lessons start tomorrow! 

Will be primarily learning and playing for my own pleasure.  I borrowed my handle from my bird - an Umbrella Cockatoo named Capella.

Well I've got quite a pure maths background (just obtained my PhD! :o)), so I inevitably memorised a few along the way.
50 is not that impressive though I'm afraid, you can tell those people that the world record holder knows it to 83,431!!!
Unfortunately, I just know 7, but it's enough to make an original screen-name, so that's good enough for me ;D

I'm not sure about composing pi, but Nancarrow's Study No.40 has the tempi of its different parts at a ratio of e:pi (e is another important maths number, about 2.718)
And I thought Finnessey's cross rhythms were bad!

However, Nancarrow's studies are meant for player piano, not human. Finnissy is meant for humans. If Nancarrow's studies were for humans, they would be more impossible than Finnissy!

Hey, there's a pattern!  :D

Has anybody ever composed Pi?
I'm seriously thinking about using it to make music, but i have to find a good way implementing it.
Did you know btw, that the PI-succession approaches perfect coincidence?
Aaalright you're not interested, back to topic^^

I once thought quite a bit about it actually. You could write it in duo-decimal (base 12) and then have each digit (0, 1, ...., 9, a, b) correspond to a note. You'd then have a pi melody as you go through the decimal points, all you need to do is choose the octave of pitches and the rhythm.
I never implemented this cunning plan though, but if someone else wants to, I'd be fascinated to hear the results.

Do you know how to translate base 10 to 12? Then i'll try.
One could also try to use base 8, i'm afraid it becomes very atonal and chromatic if every note is used (which is not necessarily bad, but still).
btw, the windows calculator has base 8  ;D

Edit: ouch...there are only 7 different notes in a diatonic scale.  ::)
forget it^^

I know the theory behind it (first decimal place is 12ths, second is 144ths, etc...) actually doing it would be a right pain. There's probably an online converter somewhere....

Well, you can work with
1/π = 12*Σ (k, 0 to +inf) (((-1)^k*(6k)!(13591409+545140134k))/((3k)!(k!)*(640320)^(3k+3/2)))
Looks like this has been modified for base 12, but I don't understand what you actually did.  ;D
I would have to write a program to calculate them and that's too complicated already.

Btw I have 10 million digits here in a text file, enough for weeks of music...*gg*

Salutations!

My name is Whit, originally from Santa Barbara, CA and living and working on a yacht here in The Exuma Islands (Bahamas).  Dockage is at Staniel Cay where I tutor two great kids (it's their father's yacht).  It's a winter gig and a break from conservatory for me.  Burned out on Beethoven, you might say.

With nothing but yachties around me, I need this forum to get my piano fix.  I do have a digital piano so I'm not totally deprived here.

It's great reading the piano posts here.  You guys are definitely a lively bunch!

Hi there. Nice meeting you. I got myself to play the piano after listening to a recording. Well, I'm a beginner and I can't seem myself to play harder pieces. Maybe it's because I don't have a teacher or something. Anyway, Greetings from Philippines.
Trying to return to playing the piano.

Hey everyone,

I have played the piano since I was 5 and am currently learning to play the violin. My favorite classical composer is Mozart, and I also like Beethoven, Chopin, Haydn and Bach. Nice to meet you all.
