Hi I'm Erika and would love to spend time with other piano players. It's been a long time since I've played. When I saw this meetup group it was really excited to join. I have been wanting to play again but life always gets in the way. I am currently a nursing student so that takes up the majority of my time. I believe that if I am around others who have the same interest as me in regards to playing the piano I'll make time to tickle the ivories again. I do really miss it.
I was trained to be a concert pianist starting at age 10. I played strictly classical. Beethoven was and still is my hero. By the time I was 13 I could play the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd movement of Moonlight Sonata. My last piece was Rhapsody in Blue. I trained at the Peabody prep school in Baltimore when I was 14 years old. I do regret quitting. I never learned to site read or play any other type of genre. I would like to do that.
I was 10 years old when I started and quit when I became the rebellious 16 year old.
I have a Yamaha electric piano and is touch sensitive and has a sustain pedal. Nothing fancy. My parents still have my Baldwin grand at their house. One of these days I will get it! If my Yamaha meets the criteria I could possibly host an event.
Hi I'm Erika, I trained to be a concert pianist when I was younger but haven't played in years. I would love to get motivated to play again.
