I went home a few weeks ago and had a go on my parents piano. Since then I’ve had a breakthrough moment where I’ve come off book and started making stuff up. They’re mostly just chord progression but nevertheless I feel the improvisational skills and play by ear skills I’ve been teaching myself on the accordion translating across to my piano playing. I’ve still got a long way to go as I’m only on piano book 13/40 in my series. So if I’m already feeling successful now, I can’t wait to hear what I produce after I’ve finished the series.
I’ll be heading to my parents place again in April for my sisters wedding, so I’ll be able to have another go on the piano then. It’s surprising what a difference there is between a real one and a keyboard.
