Hello everybody

My name is Linda, I am 15 years old and I have been taking piano lessons since January this year. Before that, I taught myself to play the keyboard. I'm attaching my recording of Schumann's "Kleine Studie". I hope you like it.

Linda

Hiya Linda,
That was beautiful ! You seem to have taught yourself well. And a good recorded sound too. What is the instrument and recording setup ?
If you have any more recordings, please post them.

Thank you for listening and commenting. I play on a Seiler piano.

Hi Linda - I enjoyed listening to your performance. You have a nice tone, and the piece was very musically played.

My mother started piano in her teens and she became an accomplished pianist and piano teacher.

So nice!

And I agree with Chris: the audio quality is excellent. It sounds so natural! Is it a grand or an upright ? It's more difficult to get a good recording from an upright piano.

Best wishes,

Didier

Yes really very nicely played! I even thought surprisingly musical, tasteful and even sophisticated considering you have only been playing for a few months. I am a big believer in playing simply and musically like this :)

I was very impressed by your thoughtful and musical interpretation, Linda! Looking forward to hear more from you :D

Hi!

You already got the most important thing: a good sense for rhythmic flow... I'm anxious to see what comes next. Thanks for posting!

Greetings

Jan

Linda gave me permission to reply to her behalf (she's my pupil and I helped her with the recording). Obviously, she's not as addicted to the Internet as I am - bless her!

Just a word about her piano. It's a Seiler upright from the 1980s. It was bought second hand and it was in a terrible state. The hammers were as hard as stone. In fact, it was impossible to play musically on it. It has just been voiced by - honour to whom honour is due - master piano builder Chrsitoph Stührenberg from Bettich Piano in Ibbenbüren, Germany. It actually took him days to fix the instrument but the result is stunning. Great job.

Thanks everybody for your encouraging comments. I'm sure there's more to come.

Cheers

Daniel
