I almost gave up the piano - I was 12 and I hated it - Chopin etudes weren't exactly resonating with someone who preferred to play air guitar to Deep Purple's Space Trucking. I was fortunate to have the experience of a truly magical teacher - you know - those life changing ones that - well - they change your life.
When I'm dry - I turn to the blues - it keeps the creative juices flowing, keeps the finger chops up and just occasionally morphs into something fabulous. Today I was just happy to have somewhere to go.
