@kb-writer Marimba – that is so neat! I know what it is and I love hearing it played, but I have never known anyone who plays it before.
I would love to take guitar lessons from you and cross border lines and pay you!…as long as you would pay for the trip!;)
I can’t believe I forgot! Debussy is my favorite composer! I love his Danse and Arabesque#1(both of which I have played). But yes, he was not a great guy. I actually got to study up on his life compared to Bach’s and how they affect their music. It was fascinating, but also very saddening. As for Chopin’s Raindrop Prelude, I have never heard it or played it. I need to go look it up! I love Liszt’s Liebestram, but only have sight-read through it – stumbling a lot. 🙂
I did not know the difference between song and piece, but I do now! I guess my favorite songs would be from Beauty and the Beast, Fiddler on the Roof, and I love Blackbird. Do you have any favorite artists or bands?
And I love your last paragraph. It’s very true. 😉
