Hi everyone. I wanted to introduce myself. I am an absolute beginner on the piano. After spending most of my life daydreaming that I would play the piano, I bought a pretty basic digital one a couple of years ago. Due to circumstances it sat unused. I recently moved and have finally dusted it off and am starting to learn as best as I can from books and the internet. I am 46yrs old and have a god awful memory, so right now that is my arch nemesis. 

 

Anyway it feels wonderful to finally be making strides towards making my long held dream into a reality.

 

I stumbled on this forum due to coming to the main ABRSM website. I have read a few threads and feel it will be a great resource in my journey. So thanks to all of the contributors here. It is amazing to find such a place. Through reading other more experienced opinions it has given me a reality check on the seriousness of learning the fundamentals thoroughly in order to progress in positive and successful way.

 

I look forward to hopefully getting to know some of you  :howDoYouDo:
