I'm getting good ... compared to a kid

I've been enjoying having a piano and been reteaching myself some music.

I'm about half way done relearning a Sonatina and was feeling pretty good about my progress. Here's a sample of me playing (on our untuned piano with an with a sticky A that doesn't always play).

Like I said I was feeling good... Until I saw this 11 year-old playing the same piece.

Oh, and this is how it's played by a a 6 year-old.

In the end, it's like art. You perform the act because you enjoying doing it, not because you are necessarily very good at it.

Oh, and if you're interested (totally understand if you aren't at this point) this is how it's really supposed to be played.

Very nice. Now I wish I kept up with my piano lessons.

I've always wanted to learn how to play. I think you did a great job! Those kids, they're alright. LOL. I kid. They're so talented, aren't they?
