Let me tell you about my lifelong obsession with the piano!
It all started when I was just a wee lad of five. My mom bought a keyboard for herself, but little did she know that it would end up in my room after only a few weeks. I quickly became enamored with playing on my own terms, using the keys to relax and unwind whenever I felt anxious or stressed out. Playing the piano was like medicine to me, and it still is to this day!
I even went to music school for a year to try and learn how to play like a pro. But let me tell you, it was far from the fun and exciting experience that I had imagined. In fact, it was downright boring and took away all the joy I had found in playing by ear when I was younger. Who needs notes when you've got chords, right? With just a few simple chords and a little bit of listening, I could start playing any song within minutes. It was like magic!
These days, I still play the piano just for fun. It's a great way to unwind and let loose after a long day of work. And who knows, maybe one day I'll write a hit song or two, and my mom can say she discovered the next Beethoven. But until then, I'll keep tickling those ivories and having a good time. I've also included some videos on my website so you can listen to me play. Thanks for reading!
