The Pianoworld Quarterly Recitals

Hi Folks

Yes its know that guy that leaves his blog for weeks and keeps you all in suspense until you've all given up on him!!

Today I'm going to start telling y'all about the Pianoworld Adult Beginners Forum Quarterly online piano recitals. These were the brain child of "Mr SuperHunky" and "Sir Bob Muir" two of the regular posters at Pianoworld at the time. I think these recitals are a great idea and if you happen to visit Pianoworld and join in with the forums over there and maybe, if you'd like to improve your piano playing a little more? then why not get recording yourself and post something up at the next one (if you have a teacher already why not let them know about it too and then you could maybe work on a new piece together)

The feedback and encourgement you get from all the other members is great and very motivating. The help and encouragement I have gotten there and at pianomagic has been a huge factor in my successes so far IMHO. Also it gives you something to regularly aim for in your piano playing which in turn forces you to polish up one of your pieces every quarter (and boy do those 3 months pass by quickly!!)

This was my first one for the February 15th 2006 recital

. Performer's name :Seaside_Lee
. Experience :2 years 3 months with

. Music Link : Lee-More.mp3

Boy, was I nervous when I sent this up to Bob as this was the first recital I had ever played in however, I needn't have been because everyone was so kind and many seemed to genuinely enjoy my piece even though I was learning to play the piano in a way that I know many of the members there (who take regular piano lessons) couldn't really relate to.

This was my first attempt I hope you enjoy it too (that's if you are still reading this blog and haven't given up on me LOL )

BTW...please let me know and say hello if you are still reading this blog? or if you have enjoyed any of my music? or my long winded stories? because, I haven't received that many comments so far (I know get the violins out eh?) but, it is a little disappointing to me to get so little feedback and to be honest I am starting to wonder whether there is anyone actually reading this anymore?

I read your blog. I also have it setup so it automatically shows up in my rss reader.

Of course as someone who reads your stuff on Pianomagic and Pianoworld I'd like to hear some different stuff, but I understand what you're doing and it's cool.
