Having a reason to prepare pieces up to performance standards will be wonderful for me. There will be times when I would enjoy just being in the audience, but I would love to perform when I'm feeling well-prepared.
The notification of an event for this group somehow appeared in my email just in time for me to attend the recital at Carlsbad Public Library on Sat., 5/5/12. Loved it! I think it found my email through another Meetup link, and I'm very glad it did. There is no other way I would have known about it. This is the nicest thing that has happened to me since my move from Oregon! What an important discovery! This gives me a reason to get back to the piano. The playing that took place in the second half of Saturday's program truly inspired me back into consistent practice. Teaching piano for years has managed to destroy my inspiration to play and perform myself, so this is an excellent opportunity for me to come on out and play once again. Thank you for organizing this group!
I have enjoyed being very active in this group for over a year and feel as though I have found my home. It has renewed my passion for practicing piano consistently in preparation for performing once again. I truly enjoy the members and events!
Outstanding group of piano enthusiasts.
