Consider Your Ways: Question 25
What skill do you most want to learn or improve this year?

When I turned 25 last year, I made a small list of all the things I wanted to do before I turned 30. Almost at the top of this list was "Be able to play the piano".

So I went and bought an electric keyboard from Ebay, which was a surprisingly painless experience. Only two days after the auction closed, it arrived, ready to be played. I had a few old piano books from family and friends, so I dusted off them off and sat down to play. I can now manage to play tunes with BOTH hands!!! At the SAME time!!! Yes, I know, amazing! I am really enjoying it though, but I do need to practise more. Now I have told you about it, I really will have to keep practising!

I love singing, so can already read music, but I would also like to be able to play some of the wonderful pieces of music out there. I think it would be an investment in the future too, to be able to play for my family and friends when we meet to praise God in song. I should probably confess though that it will also probably have been a childhood diet of Pride and Prejudice, Little Women, and Little House on the Prairie that make me want to be able to play the piano!

Music expresses that which can not be said and on which it is impossible to be silent.
Victor Hugo, French author (1802-1885)

There is a good movie called "Far and Away" (Nicole Kidman, Tom Cruise), and while still in the old country Nicoles character is made to entertain the guests on the piano. She does, but then breaks into some horrid new honkytonk or something like they are playing over in America. Disgrace!

I grew up playing the piano. I play a bit just for fun.

I hate it how doctors have talent at everything.

Good for you for taking this on. I can play the piano but would love to be able to play the guitar. I have attempted to self teach but haven't gotten too far yet. I also don't have a guitar. I was borrowing one and she needed it back so that has put my learning on hold as well!!

Keep it up and before you know it, you'll be tickling those ivories beautifully!

Thank you for the encouragement! I really wouldn't want you to think that I am in any way talented at the piano - I am on the same book as a nine year old friend!
