I learned how to play the piano when I was four. My piano teacher was my grandfather. He gave me the earliest time and that was 7am because he had a lot of students on Sundays. I was still young so I didn't like playing the piano yet. I loved playing outdoors so every Sunday I pretended to be sick. I always told my parents that I had a stomachache, a fever, etc. Of course they knew I was lying. I was so lazy. Actually, I was scared of my grandfather because he was too strict. One wrong note and you have to repeat from the start again. Now, I regret those days. If only I continued learning to play the piano. Happy myLotting.

Hello there Angel Karah. It's a bit bad that you were not able to learn how to play the piano well because of the alibis you were able to give when your grandfather wanted to teach you how to play the piano. Maybe, if you were not that lazy or afraid of your grandfather before, you could be good in playing the piano until now. If only you really liked to learn. Though it's okay because maybe you were still so young that time. You didn't know yet the importance of learning how to play the piano. In my case, I don't know how to play the piano well yet too. I could say that most of my family members and relatives know how to play the piano too. My father, uncles, aunt, sisters, and maybe my mother could play too. Maybe, before, my father was able to teach me some musical pieces but now, I don't have any practice in playing what my father taught me before. I wanted to learn how to play the piano again. I wasn't able to ask my father to teach me how to play some other musical pieces. I didn't know that he was going to die a bit early before and I wasn't able to ask him to teach me more. I wasn't able to learn how to do the basics of piano playing. Oh no, I just wish he were still here so he could teach me. I hope someday, I could also learn how to do it because I really admire people who are good at it. I think they are really talented. They're so good. I wish I could be like them. I wish I would learn how to read the notes well too. Oh, I really need a piano teacher. I hope my uncle would be here so he could teach me. Happy myLotting. :)

I think I was a little lazy at some point when I lose interests in playing piano then I got lazy in practising each time after the lessons like she gave me 3 pieces to pratise in one week but I would only practise one and I didn't have enough time to practise with school work together. But I still like playing piano overall.
