How long have you been studying piano?

I tried teaching myself when I was a teenager, but my family couldn't afford lessons, and I found it too frustrating to progress after a certain point and gave up. Twenty years later, I bought a keyboard and after having it sit in my garage for three years. I finally set it up and started taking lessons and I've never looked back.

Why did you start studying piano?

I love music, and kept on having dreams of playing the piano. I finally listened to my subconscious and started to take lessons. I'm so happy, I did. I've really enjoyed learning and getting better and it's a great stress relief.

What music do you play/study?

Mostly classical. But I want to progress to be able to play popular and praise music.

What would like in a recital that you will perform in?

1. Adults only. I played in a recital where the next oldest performer was like 14 and most were under 10 year old! (I'm my teacher's only adult student). I felt very out of place. 2. Small/intimate environment with other adult students and maybe a few guests.

What has hindered you from playing publically

Not having a non-threatening venue, especially as a beginner.
