Hi everyone I thought I would start a thread on people who play any musical instrument but mainly keyboard/pianos and organs
I started playing piano when I was six and the keys have been part of me ever since
I live in a small house with part of the lounge taken up with a 76 note Roland keyboard along side a Yamaha 2 manual organ.
I thought by starting this thread it would create an interest in what instruments are played and what styles of music you play.
It would also be interesting to see how the balance is of those that need music and those who play by ear. This could end up a bit of a self help group, a sheet music exchange etc. some may be helped by others to explore various styles and techniques .especially when trying to decipher music
The possibilities go on .
I look forward to your input
This is a message that I hope inspires other 60+ musicians. I am a real 60+ senior who and has been a struggling musician for many years. When I lost my wife to Cancer I withdrew from the music industry and thought my dream was over. But this June I produced my first YouTube video of a song dedicated to Mother Nature. It was such an inspiring experience that I wanted other 60+ seniors to know that it's never too late to pursue the things you love!
Here's my video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tGiWolvE_gY
I play Ukulele with a couple of groups - get a great deal of enjoyment from the music (even if my mind goes a bit blank from time to time) - I live in Somerset and play at least twice a week, sometimes more. We play the old favourites and there are those songs I've never heard before, but they soon become familiar. But it all depends on what the leaders like.
I have been listening to or involved in music since I was 11!
Having just joined this site I was wondering if any other people remember using all different formats of recording and playing music what hifi equipment musical instruments etc?
I listen to and played everything and anything throughout the years and miss chatting about all things musical!
Is it just me or are there lots of others out there?
