Hobbies.

I used to be so musical - guitar, keyboard, percussion, choir(!) - but as I got older I gave up and of course now completely regret it! So, with the help of you tube and the t'internet I am attempting to teach myself. It should be interesting considering I have little patience.

Can you play? If so I am massively jealous. I need a teacher who doesn't mind being paid in cups of tea and biscuits!

  9. I can sort of play the piano and you can easily learn the basics from the internet as I did. I study music so you kind of know the basics of keyboard/piano throught theory and stuff.
    You just need to practice, practice and practice and if you used to play then in a few weeks you should be just as good as before! xx

  10. I played piano for years! Back in the day where lessons were only £5. I could never afford to do it now but I'm sad I don't play any more. You've given me a good idea with self-teaching through internet :) x

  13. I have that second picture hanging above my bed!!! My parents bought it for me for my birthday last month and I love it <3 have played the piano for about 14 years now. If you used to play I'm sure it won't take you long to get back into it, hopefully it'll all come flooding back! Good luck :) xxx
