I took piano lessons for almost nine years when I was younger but stopped when I reached the point where my instructor told me I had to make the decision to just make it a hobby or make it a profession. My parents pushed me toward making it a profession but I was only sixteen years old at the time and it scared me that I was being pushed in a direction I didn’t know whether I truly wanted or not. As a result, I stopped playing altogether.
Now that I’m out on my own and have been for some time I’d like to try picking it up again. As I’m going to be going to University as a music major (though for voice and not for piano) it will be a useful skill to have polished and up to quality once again.
I’m plotting out a schedule for myself tomorrow morning and this is one thing I’ll be making time for.
