So I played piano in front of some friends for the first time...
« on: November 29, 2013, 02:06:22 AM »
They have never heard me, because if I had my way no one outside the security of the internet would have, anyway they insisted that I show them something because I have been in this "piano stuff" for 1 and half year and basically become a hermit.

Which is not weird considering I am very self conscious and not very happy with my current skill level and this is pretty much their reactions:



I don't know what to think, if anyone is interested this is what I played.

How you looked while performing was more important than how you actually played. ;)

Anyway, is that the actual performance of what you played for them?  If so, I can tell you that the music was high on fluff, low on content.  So in order to sell it, you had to look good performing it.

Sounds like a metal song transcribed for the piano  ::)

What was that? I presume you improvised or something...try to learn a piece, work hard(technically AND musically) and then your friends will probably look a little different.

BTW do you have a teacher?
Etude Quinte Op. 42 No. 6, Rautavaara
Prelude No. 2, WTC 1, Bach
Prelude Op. 23 No. 5, Rachmaninoff
Fugue No. 2, WTC 1, Bach
Etude Op. 10 No. 12, Chopin
Piano Concerto No. 2 Op. 18, Rachmaninoff

Yes I do and no it wasn't exactly improvisation it reflects my own inner anxiety and feelings of the past months. And damper, I am freaking hawt I just look clumsy when playing cuz I feel awkward.

If you listen closely you an hear them breathing in the background...
