Learning how to play the piano...

,t. keeps bugging me for a new post. I'm glad he is. I need to kkep up withnnthis, but I haven't. This is a picture of my piano. This isn't the exact piano, but ikt's pretty close.

I've tried to learn before, but kept giving up. This time I'm determined to stick with it. If I do, I can play the piano in church.

I have a few books from when I took piano lessons and I'm using them to teach myself. If I really get into this I may even take actual lessons. We shall see how it goes.

That is great idea Lamby dear, piano playing is so much fun...
I miss my piano I don't have it any more and when I hear a lovely melody
I think to myself I shall go home and play it, then I remember my piano has gone. :(
That is a lovely piano, I wish you many hours of enjoyment playing your favourite songs.

xoxoxo ♡

Little Lamb said...

Foam, Thank you. Right I'm enjoying practicing.

/t. Yes I can x 100.

Dianne, Piano playing takes so long to learn, though. That's why I get discouraged. Hopefully this time it won't happen.

What happened to your piano?

dianne said...

I had to sell it Lamby, I needed the money. Thanks for asking, one day I might be able to afford another second-hand piano.
You enjoy yours, don't get discouraged, just take your time and you will be playing well.

xoxoxo ♡

Little Lamb said...

I hope you can get another one.

Our church organist just retired from playing the organ for us.
she is... well... the "O" word plus some years. She had only taken a very few lessons, too.
Oh, she would play the wrong notes, sometimes, but, so does Steve, and he's been playing the piano since 1958 (his first formal piano lessons) so, making a mistake isn't even something to worry about.
I flat out don't know how to play the piano, even though I sit down to them all the time.
I think it may be the same as flying a plane.
It's easy enough to fake it until you try to land, then the plane crashes, everyone dies, and they all blame you just because you're the pilot.

OK, well...not exactly like flying a plane...

Little Lamb said...

I hope to stick with it this time. Ingo to my first practice at church. I need to be able to play eith the other musicians,

puerileuwaite said...

If I can play piano in a marching band, then I see no reason why you can't play one in church. Maybe your extended solos would inspire more prayer. You never know.

In fact I am willing to play the drums and do the singing. We'll call ourselves "The Reverse Carpenters". That should cause any heathens to repent.

Here are a few song selections:

"Goodbye to Pugs"

"Yesterday Once More All Over Again"

"Rainy Days and Leisure Suits Always Get Me Down"

"Top of the Pulpit"

"We've Only Just Begun (So It's Way Too Early To Complain)"

"Superstarsearch"

I plan on a hunger strike until I get your answer.

Little Lamb said...

Sounds good to me! When do we begin?

foam said...

hmmffff, pug didn't have to go hungry very long .. :-)

Little Lamb said...

No, I guess not.

Thank you Lamby. Your answer has me on "Top of the World".

No more hunger strike!

/t. said...

so, LL,
have you learned
any of those piano keys yet?

maybe start with the black ones as there seems to be fewer of them...

Little Lamb said...

I'm familiar with all of them. They make beautiful music together.
