    I am 52 years old and I have been learning for abour 6 years (apart from a couple of years when I was about 9-10). You wouldn`t expect me to remember my first piece from that long ago would you - however probably something from the Schaum course book. I had a teacher for 5 years but she moved away so I am going it alone and really enjoying self-tuition, which is where I started. I am currently learning Mozart sonata in A (the one that ends in the famous Rondo alla Turk) and Beethoven`s Sonata 20 OP 49/2. These are great pieces to learn, difficult but not impossible. The Mozart is a bit of a marathon especially if all repeats are observed. To our younger contributors: DO NOT EVER give up playing otherwise like me you will live a lifetime of regret. I would pay a very large sum of money to instantly be able to play to a high standard, but as you all know that`s impossible. Regular practice is the only way and believe me its much harder the older you get, despite all that school work you have to get through. It`s a wonderful skill and I wish I was good and confident enough to perform in public. Keep playing.

    I have been playing piano for 6 years now and I think the first song I learned was "Jingle Bells."
