My name is Will and I am an addict! Whoa, whoa, wait a minute that was the intro for another group. No but seriously guys, I am addicted to music generally and the piano more specifically. I have been playing for about ten years and for those of you who don’t know, that really isn’t a significant amount of time. I am primarily self taught, through books, and that has been both a blessing and a curse. For example, I understand a lot of basic theory but I haven’t had the benefit of a good teacher to guide me through the morass of insignificant information.Consequently, I suffer through wanting to sound authentic but not having the facility to accomplish what my ears hear.
I am looking for friends who are like minded and am hoping that this blog provides an outlet for those of us who want to communicate our experience.
Glad to meet you also. I certainly understand the things you mentioned. I have similar situations in that I have learned a lot more about theory, ideas, and such and certainly well worth knowing. However I have not had the discipline or guidance to put this all into action from my head to my fingers. Welcome and I hope you get great progress from this most excellent stuff that Ron provides.
