I won't bore you all with details on a publice forum but the right decision (only decision) has been made.
I wish you all well with your learning I'm not going to be around to see how you all get on sadly.
Thanks for all your advice and keep up the pratice.
Yes you can. Think rubbing belly and tapping head. Or whichever way it goes. And life could be worse; you could be a church organist with feet to cope with too...
I think you need to take a break from the formal training for a little while and try out some improvisation. It is something that Trinity Guildhall has been very big on developing and now examining alongside the normal classical training. At the end of the day, you could do as many other have done in the past and galloped you way to Grade VIII, demonstrating no musical ability other than that of a tape recorder, parroting pieces, only to find that you can't play happy birthday from sheet music never mind by ear at the end of it all!dave brum wrote:As Kari has said, I too have given up lessons and haven't played for many weeks. At 41, and having been on antidepressants and anticonvulsants for 13 and 27 years respectively, concentration is difficult (even though it has helped me in that department...) and I feel I'm not getting anywhere, which is turning my piano playing into a chore, which I've always said it shouldn't be.
Look up some simple chord piano sessions on Youtube - there are loads of them geared towards beginners. This will be a nice outlet for you and will give you some short-term gratification on 'Fiona'.
