Hi everyone
« on: August 28, 2021, 10:40:50 PM »
Hello, I'm DaPianist, a classical music lover and an okay pianist (I guess :D). Glad to be here in this classical music forum, and I'm looking forward to discussing music with everyone here!
I usually prefer Classical and Romantic music, and I love everything related to piano, and I'm currently practicing the Chopin Etudes. (so hard!!!) I also like listening to symphonies. Nice to meet everyone, and does anyone know a good symphony or piano concerto around here?
If you are reading this then go practice your instrument thank you

Hello DaPianist and welcome to GMG!  :)

There are a number of threads about piano music here.  Just type "piano" into the search field and then click on search (top right of your screen) and decide where you want to dive in.  Or you might want to start doing some searches with a favorite composer?  Or one that you are curious about?

Impressive that you are tackling Chopin's etudes!  Good luck with that!  You'll find that some of us here can play instruments and/or sing...some are also composers....and some of us fit none of those categories (like yours truly) but just enjoy music.  ;)

Best wishes,

PD

Welcome from me too.
