Piano practice

Last week, I uploaded some videos of myself practicing piano. I still can’t play anime or game songs yet, so I decided to play some of the songs that I liked the most from the Simply Music piano method that I’m learning. I haven’t uploaded all of the songs I can play yet, so I plan to set aside some time to record and upload the remaining songs.

I actually was recording myself play the piano at about midnight till 1am, so I was actually a bit tired but overall was quite happy with my performance. I did however feel intimidated by the camera. On the other hand, it actually helped me identify which songs I need to work on more as I ended up making some mistakes on some songs I thought I could play easily.

When recording, the area around the piano was quite tidy, but actually the rest of my room was a mess. (^_^;

By the way, after uploading all the videos, I got a pleasant surprise. The creator of the Simply Music piano method, Neil Moore, commented on one of my videos! I’m really happy about it.

I plan to keep up with the piano practice and work towards my goal of playing anime and game songs.
