Its been over a year since I had a piano lesson and many many months since I even touched my piano but I've finally decided, I'm going to give it another go, albeit with another teacher.
I passed grade 2 with Distinction but as I am now I couldn't even do my grade 1 and pass with 100. I've backslidden so much, and such a lot has fizzled into the haze of a 41 year old and his cocktails of anticonvulsants/antidepressants. I can only just remember how to play a Cmaj/Amin scale with both hands and the Z-Cars theme!!!
My problem is confidence. But the whole sphere of learning the piano became boring after a few years as I didn't look upon it as a joyful pursuit but a chore. I have never thought of listening to classical piano, or watching videos of Kempf, Argerich and LangLang a chore, so why should learning piano, something I have always wanted to do since shildhood but was denied the opportunity several times, a chore?
Has anyone else ever been in the same boat??
