Default New to piano

Good evening, everyone...

So this old guy takes up piano last year at age 54. Loving every minute of it.
My kids still haven't stopped laughing, but I know it's pure jealousy.

I have written two piano solos that I would love some feedback on. If anyone is willing to take a few minutes, please let me know. I would be more than happy to return the favor.

Gearin' up for a heat wave in NJ...

Michael

Normally we don't allow people to join the site as "unproven contributors" (nice way of saying "noob we don't trust yet") to promote their music, but in this instance, you're probably not likely to be here solely to spam.. as amateur piano recordings go.. but as a staff member here, I'm personally interested in hearing your piano playing, and because you actually asked instead of just posting links, then you have my go-ahead to post them here.

If I get yelled at, it's on me.
Don't make me regret it, please! (not the quality of your playing, but the ratio of discussion & contribution to personal music for what's unofficially a probationary period for new users)

I'd also be interested in hearing what you've written! I'm 19 but I've been playing piano for the past 13 years, I started with classical pieces when I had a teacher (up until last year), but over the past few years I started doing more improv and playing more contemporary pieces. Nice to meet you!

Awesome, Sshim...

I wish I had started when I was 6 but, as they say, better late than never!

I look forward to your feedback on my pieces. Thanks so much.

Michael

Steve it is, then...

Turns out I apparently cannot post a URL until I have submitted 15 or more posts.

By this time tomorrow, I'll probably hit 15.

But thanks for your interest, Steve. I'll keep you posted (pardon the pun)

Actually, Steve...

If you're willing to share your e-mail address, I can send the piece right to you.

Your call.

Take care and stay cool.
