Faber Adult Piano Adventures 1: "The Entertainer" (7 months piano progress)

When I started learning piano, I thought I would never be able to learn this (very simple arrangement) of this iconic piece. Seven months later, here I am! 😀 This easy version is right at my current level and with patience, taking one bar at a time, I learned it rather quickly.

During recording, I kept messing up the very last chord! So I cheated, recorded just the final phrase separately, and put it together with the rest. Oops. 💩

The intro is not in the arrangement. It was my husband who taught me — he plays the piano really well and can play the original score of this piece.

Scott Joplin's "The Entertainer", arranged by Faber. Sheet music for this piece:

Hi, I'm Maira and this is my attempt at old-fashioned personal blogging in the era of social media overload. I'm a day trader, programmer and photographer currently based in Valencia, Spain, and the last thing I want to talk about is work.

My little corner on the internet is all about photography, travels, learning piano, gardening, baking... The kind of personal stuff I'd share with my mom on social media, but without the ads.
