On Being a Pianist in Kenya - Against All Odds
It is hard enough to train as a classical pianist, even in a Western country with good access to instruments, sheet music and advanced tuition. If you happen to live in Kenya, where nothing of the above is easily available, the many obstacles make it almost impossible. Yet, there are people with an absolute determination to learn. Piano Street has talked to pianist Cordelia Williams, whose new documentary film depicts a new generation on track to break the "glass ceiling" of classical music in Kenya. Read more >>

So quiet...
on: July 15, 2022, 01:20:12 PM
Guys why are you so quiet? I haven't posted in a while and I'm just hanging around here and replying to questions and stuff, but... why are there fewer topics posted? All of my questions are already answered by nice people around here  :) so I don't need to post topics anymore. And I feel I already posted a lot of nonsense stuff like my contest,  the riddle challenge and those things not related to piano so I got nothing to do in piano street but grab sheet music and give advice.
The past few days are quieter compared to my first few days here. Why? Kindly reply. But are you guys too quiet to answer this too??

Of course!  :) Real life stuff are really important and I know you are busy (everyone is) but you still reply to posts and help lots of new pianists. Thank you for that. =)

Most people tend to post topics when they have something to share.

I joined the forum a few months back and made a few posts early on but it's been a little while since I've made one.

It's quite impressive how many posts you've made since you've joined, but I think activity on the forum is just down in general. I was about to make a post asking about how to sync the hands in the dominant preparation at the end of the development in Waldstein 1st movement, but just before posting remembered an accenting exercise which solved my issue.

You have inspired me, I'll figure out something that might be worth posting in the next few days. We'll see... :)

I am so happy to be here in piano street. There are so many nice people and they have lots of things to share and it had helped me a lot in my piano playing.
