Who can play the piano? I have always wanted to learn to play. I could not get the hang of it, so I gave up. My eldest son can play any instument. the others cant so he must be gifted! LOL.

I had years of piano lessons as a kid. I got to where I could play fairly well. Since then I've seldom even thought about playing even though I have a piano in my living room. Maybe one of these days I'll have time to sit down and recapture some of what I used to know. Since I can read music well, I should be able to learn again.

My eldest daughter learned to play piano by ear. Eventually I was able to get her a scholarship for lessons. She picked it up quickly. Now she is able to play just about any instrument. Her rheumatoid arthritis hinders her playing. She once played the clarinet so beautifully and now her fingers just won't move the way they once did. Her voice is her best instrument. She sings so well.

My son plays the piano. He is really good at music. I am amazed at his talent because the only thing I can play is a stereo or a radio.:)

I can play the piano. I started taking lessons even before I had a piano - I used to practice on the table :P I took piano all through school and really loved it :) Why not ask your son to teach you how to play...

When I was pregnant, I decided to learn how to play. So, my husband bought me the learning book, but I only got half way. I didn't want to memorize the notes. I just though it was too much. But, I'll do it again someday.

I play piano "by ear". I know a little music but I don't use reading music much. I just play how it sounds. I also play the organ, accordion, and of course, the keyboard. I don't play really often these days, but if I am feeling down it is a way to express myself and get out of the doldrums. I enjoy making up music as I play it also. Sometimes I just start playing an let my fingers and my mood decide what to play. I should record it, I suppose, but I don't. I would say your son is probably gifted.

You sound gifted playing by ear! You should record your music? you seem to be gifted,letting your mood choose your music is great.
