One of my aims for 2016 is to enjoy being creative without putting too much pressure on myself and one of my main goals is to play the piano regularly. I had lessons for six years when I was younger and took all of the exams up to grade six, but then GCSEs, A-levels and university happened and I didn’t get much of a chance to play. I’ve always kept my piano with me, though, dusting it off every few months to have a play and quickly remembering why I used to love it so much.
Now I’m putting more of an emphasis on being creative just for the fun of it, I’ve been playing the piano more and more and I love it just as much as I did when I was at my most competent. I’m still a bit rusty but I’m really excited that it’s come back to me so fast and I’ve been trying to play for a couple of hours or so a week.
There are a few different songs I’m learning at the moment and I’m sure it’ll be a good few months until I have them perfect, but for now I’m just enjoying the process. For today’s post I thought I’d share the four songs I’m currently working on, so here they are:
If you have any pieces that you particularly love, do let me know as I’m always looking for new sheet music to add to my stash!
