One Year Piano Anniversary

First year of playing piano was completed on the 15th May.

The first 2 weeks were played on an old Technics KN800 … After these 2 weeks I realized, I would never learn playing piano properly on this thing. Everything was simply wrong … Wrong keys without weight, no dynamics, bad sound, too few keys …

Then, I bought a Casio PX120 and started to write this blog … Well, this was one year ago … Unbelievable, how fast the time runs away …

It turned out – surprisingly – that the timing of the triplets were no problem at all, but I think it was difficult to remember the notes, because the triplet have to be played partially by the left and by the right hand.

The performance was recorded after about 3 weeks …
