Greetings from a newbie to all Piano Society members

The reason why I joined at this stage is just to participate in discussing all things piano and hopefully to learn a lot from more accomplished players.

First of all I can't tell you how much I love listening (and playing) piano music, I especially like classical music by Chopin, List, Beethoven, Schuman, Vivaldi (and lots of others). Unfortunately I'm still not very good at playing, I guess I just gota practice practice practice. Just recently finding Classiccat and then PS has really motivated me not to give up and to work really really hard at my piano practicing. Also what I find so great about PS is that with any piece I'm learning to play I can get a lot of inspiration about that piece just by listening to how others have played it.

Welcome, Jono7! How nice for you to introduce yourself. Keep practicing - that's the way to success! I hope you have a good teacher, too. I wish you all the best in your piano work.

All of us likely feel that same impulse, and I for one have to Practice, practice, practice too!
I hope your experience here will be a good one. As with any family, sometimes we too have heated arguments, but usually they end amicably. The wonderful thing about piano literature, is that there are beautiful works for all levels of playing!

Regards,
Eddy
