Nice to have you aboard! Are you a beginner or an established pianist?
I play for my own amazement... :piano;

Hello, my name is Umar. I've been playing the piano since January 2015 (3 years now) and currently know about 17 songs off by heart, in a range of genres and artists (Bruno Mars, Yann Tiersen, Pachelbel, Dj Snake, Justin Hurwitz, Katy Perry, Yiruma, Ed Sheeran, Ludovico Einaudi and a few others.)
For a majority of the songs I learnt, I also made them my own arrangements (usually little changes, like adding in some missing notes, changing tempo of some notes, and some songs I even merged from multiple tutorials.)
I also love technology, soldering, video games (currently playing Assassin's Creed) and a few other things.
Feel free to message me if you would like to know more and I look forward to hearing from you :)

Hello! My name is Simon, a piano teacher based over in Belfast, Northern Ireland. I run Piano Lessons Belfast - http://www.pianolessonsbelfast.com - having moved over to Belfast from York, where I studied music and worked as a musician and musical director. I thought I would join the forum to help network with other music teachers - being a piano teacher can be quite a solitary lifestyle in terms of reaching out to other music teachers, so fantastic to be a part of a forum like this where I can meet fellow music teachers and music enthusiasts! :)

Hello Shadow935. I have never heard anyone say they are interested in soldering before. What do you solder ? Electronic components by any chance ?

Hello SimonBurrowes. Good luck with your teaching practice. What sort of things did you study in the music course at York ?
