I’m not usually one for tinkering with a keyboard.
I’m more a keyboardist, and my electric piano has always been my favourite.
But when I was first introduced to a keyboard, it was by accident.
It was a simple but effective exercise in finger-tapping.
As soon as I had it, I started tinkering.
I thought it sounded so much better with a real piano, and it wasn’t long before I started teaching myself how to play it.
It’s been a lifelong journey since then, and I’m now a certified electric pianist.
But now I’ve been thinking about how to use a piano to make something new.
What if I could make something beautiful, and make a piece of music that was unique to me?
