Russian School of Piano Playing Book 1 Part I

I have finally finished the first book in the Russian School of Piano Playing method! Can't believe I made it all the way here!! 🤩🎹❤️

Learning piano is one of the best decisions I ever made. My life is full of music and colours now. At moments it feels so impossibly hard, but looking back at this playlist, I feel so accomplished — specially considering I don't have a teacher and am learning on my own. My mental health has benefit so much from the piano too! I didn't really have hobbies before, and after work I just watched TV. Now I practice piano, I listen to music. I also picked up gardening. And baking bread! Honestly, piano has taught me to LIVE my life, instead of letting it pass me by.

I haven't recorded everything in the book (I skipped all exercises, for example), but I did record most pieces and études. Sharing below some of my favourite ones!

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.
