My Piano Journey

In January of 2020 I decided to start piano again. There was a global pandemic coming. But, the pandemic was not my motivation. A young girl who lives in the apartment above me was practicing her piano and progressing very nicely. I was intrigued. So after almost 50 years I ordered a keyboard and began experimenting with online lessons. And soon, with the rest of the world, I realized that online study would be the only option for quite some time.

Fast forward to to today. My progress has been hit and miss. While I’ve subscribed and participated in various online programs and systems they all seem to lack the structure I need. So this week I interview with a teacher and will most likely start weekly lessons.

To mark this moment in time I made a YouTube video of the latest piece I’m working on, Bach Prelude in C Major. My playing is choppy but I’m having fun! And I will continue to work on this piece.

Let’s see where this journey takes me.

New High SASR Score

Tonight I hit a new SASR high score. Future posts will address my journey back to piano lessons. I struggle with sight reading and SASR is an assessment of a pianist’s sight reading ability. Tonight I scored a 310. Still in the “early beginner” skill level. But I’m pleased. (And, I needed to try loading an image into a Word Press post.) Here is the report showing history and most recent assessment.
