In the big scheme of things this may sound small....

    but I made it thru the entire introduction of Moonlight Sonata last week! :happyguy:

    My right side is extremely weak - it's difficult to play the melody but I've been practicing my behind off over the last month & a half on this piece. The pedaling & the melody are helping me to strengthen my right side to an extent.

    It's not the hardest arrangement - nor is it the easiest. Lots of accidentals & such.

    AND I am proud of me. Now I need to finesse this piece.:bigsmile: It feels good to get some of my music back; I love my new piano.

    No - it IS a big thing!!!

    See, the way I look at it - in the grand tapestry of the universe we are all but small threads - but each thread is necessary. And each piece of ourselved makes up part of that thread.

    I am really thrilled! I love music - many, many kinds of music - so to me, this is a GREAT thing!!!!

    I love that piece Timer - it's hauntingly beautiful. And why would you say it's a small thing? had better call me, put the phone down and let me hear it. - okay either now or when you feel it's good. ;) I'm no critic - I just love music. My favorite song is Bach's Tocatta in Dm - (Phantom of the Opera song) I learned how to play just a bit of it and I was thrilled so I can't imagine how you must feel to get through 1/2 of Moonlight Sonata.

    BRAVISIMO!!!!! (tosses rose)

    Thanks ladies .... to me it's huge! I love playing piano; love that I'm playing pieces that I used to in recitals.

    Star, I'm also working on Fur Elise. Another gorgeous piece of music by Beethoven. My next piece will be the Polovitsian Waltz - another fun but challenging piece for me.

    I'm also working on Christmas music.

    I think it's a HUGE thing too! And it's one of my favorite pieces of music ever. I could listen to that all day long! Congrats, Linda. That's a real accomplishment.

    Oh Linda, please don't diminish the accomplishment. It's a beautiful piece of music and it's wonderful that you're able to start playing it again.
