I've just discovered the New Members section! so thought I would post a "hello".
I'm a piano teacher. I've been lurking around the forum for a while, learning a lot from the teachers forum particularly. I have only been teaching the piano for a few years, but really love it compared to anything else I did before. I wish I had gone into it earlier.
I used to play the trumpet - just to grade 5 - but haven't touched it for years (I don't even want to calculate how long - eek) However, reading around here about adult learners taking up new instruments just for the challenge is quite inspiring, so maybe...
ps. I love the liberal use of smileys around here!
