I took piano lessons for 15 years and enjoyed playing the classics, but I don’t play anymore.
My father wanted me to become a piano teacher, but I had neither the right amount of talent nor the desire to become one. I still enjoy listening to all genres of music. If I had it to do over again, I would probably learn to play the guitar instead of the piano because of the beautiful sound it produces.
I listen to all genres of music (if they don’t consist of merely loud noise, that is). It’s sad that country music has degenerated down into nothing more than hollering and jumping up and down on stage. To my way of thinking, music generated without all of the present-day amplifiers, is the best music. Whatever happened to soft, soothing-to-the-soul music?
