If you could choose to be a master (or mistress) of any skill in the world, which skill would you pick?
I’d love to be able to play the piano properly. I had years of lessons from the age of 8 but I was terrible at remembering to practise. When I was younger I always used the excuse that the piano was in the lounge and the rest of the family was watching TV and I didn’t want to disturb them (how considerate of me!)
As a teenager the piano was in the hallway and I used the excuse of disturbing everyone in the house if I played.
I now have our family piano in our playroom where it wouldn’t really disturb anyone but I never find the time to sit and play.
I love listening to piano music and find it incredibly relaxing and rewarding to sit and learn a new piece. Perhaps I’ll have to make it next year’s resolution!
