Well hello there
« on: July 13, 2017, 06:04:21 AM »
Hi!
I'm a 19 year old Dutch Pianist/Keyboardist and I have just started composing pieces for the piano, I'm still exploring just the surface of being a composer, but I'd love to one day compose pieces for orchestras!

I'm mostly a classical and experimental pianist & keyboardist, with my band we play a lot of experimental garagerock and I use a lot of classical influences in my plaing, especially with my piano parts.

I'm looking forward to meeting a lot of new people here and discovering a lot of new music here! :D

A huge sign once greeted me "WELLCOML IN KISHIK" (a village in the Khanty-Mansiisk region of Siberia), so: WELLCOML to this forum!

Welcome!

I'm always pleasantly surprised by the number of young people who have an interest in classical music and join discussion boards like this one.

I'm a n00b myself, both to classical music generally and to this forum specifically, but I was a longtime lurker before that, so I can say with some assurance that you'll find a lot of very knowledgeable people here. And a few grumps, but whaddya gonna do?  :P
