  • What should I do if I don't find the piano enjoyable anymore?

    My interest in the piano has gradually declined over the years. I am currently a sophomore in high school. I have been playing the piano for 12 years now. I play as a competitive pianist, and I have earned many awards. My teacher smothers me with competitions. She has many talented players, so she expects me to be on the same level as them. Because of the stress of competitions, my interest has dwindled down to almost nothing. Both my teacher and my parents say I have the talent, I just don't put in the effort. Since entering middle school, I turned my attention more towards studying than piano, which made my parents very upset, since I hardly even touched my piano. The main downfall of my interest in piano would be horseback-riding. I have been riding for 10 years and my interest in the sport sky-rocketed in 5th grade. My teacher charges $60/hr for piano lessons and my riding is the same amount. My parents have given me the choice of riding or piano, or both. I always wanted to say riding but I know that if I chose riding over piano, my parents would be severely disappointed in me. Upon entering high school, more is expected to come out of piano. My parents tell me "colleges love to see you are persistent!" I am already so stressed with school and competitions add more to the load. I only find solace in riding, and I want to find solace in playing the piano recreationally. I'm afraid of letting down my parents. What should I do?

  • Why does friend prefer Debussy to Beethoven?

    My good friend who's a really smart guy doesn't like beethoven and he prefers the impressionist style of debussy. I can't fathom how anyone could prefer debussy's non tonal music to the rich german sound of beethoven. He also doesn't like the sound of wagner either. Anyone care to explain.

  • What do you call the VI chord with the root and third higher?

    If you’re in the key if D major, what would you call a chord with C, E, F-sharp, A (in that order)? That chord would probably be followed by a B7 chord, and then probably E minor. The chord seems like it could be called Am6, F# half diminished, or F#m7b5. However, it seems like a second inversion (or a first... show more

  • How to dress to Itzak Perlman concert?

    So I am stoked to be going to an Itzhak Perlman concert. I do not really have any experience going to symphonies, especially ones with such a big name performing. What would be an appropriate way to dress? The evening will be a first date with a girl I have wanted to ask out for months. Thanks!

    I was preparing to take the rcm 10 exam for piano but i recently quit because i just wasnt practicing and basically wasting money. i kinda want to start again but i keep asking myself do i want to put myself through that again? Because i always hated going to lessons and didnt want to practice. But i also really hate that i got myself this far and quit when i was so close. I dont really regret it right now but i feel like i might later on. I think if i decide to start again i can motivate myself much better but i only have about 7 months before i go off to university, so because there is a time limit, i really have to practice hard. I guess my question is rcm 10 worth it?
