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 ?

Are you musically minded? Do you write music text books?

It's been quite a while that I registered for this forum. Now I found this thread inviting me to introduce myself, so why not do it?

I am an amateur pianist from Hamburg, Germany. I am quite active on PianoWorld and I am making and uploading recordings for the IMSLP, just for fun. The Museopen project found them good enough to copy and offer for download on their site as well, so I cannot be too bad. :lol: This is me:

Apart from classical music I like to play jazz standards and light music by ear like this Ray Charles tune

Hello a Newby to this forum. My daughter aged 13 and son aged 8 are having lessons. My daughter has just passed ABRSM Grade 3 and my son is prepping for his first “prep” exam. We live in Staffordshire and have a very good home teacher who comes to is once every week.
We have managed on our cheap and cheerful £100 piano for 6 years having it tuned by a local technician but the time has come to upgrade hopefully to a Yamaha U3, without breaking our budget
I’m researching and enquiring but want to use this forum for advice and assistance should I locate one miles from where I live.
Kind Regards
Anthony
