Default Don't you wish you could play piano like this?



This composition is imbued with a lot of emotion for me, as I have played and beaten Final Fantasy IX many times, and every time I listen to this song, tears still well up in my eyes. I really wish I could play piano like this. The song is "Melodies of Life", by the way.

"Melodies of Life" is a lovely song, indeed; I haven't played any Final Fantasy games but I've always adored the song, both in English and Japanese. After watching these type of videos on YouTube, I too wish to play the piano. Or if it weren't YouTube, it'd be one of my close real life friends. She's been taking piano lessons since she was very young, and once she played "Eternal Snow" from the anime Full Moon wo Sagashite and I cried. It was embarrassing, in front of her family and some of my other friends.

Here are two piano videos I favorited on my YouTube account:

YouTube - Caramelldansen - Piano [MP3 Available] (Caramelldansen - it surprisingly sounds very nice, and not obnoxious like the actual song)

YouTube - ピアノで「Ark(Sound Horizon)」 ("Ark" by Sound Horizon)

I don't know how to post media... eheh.

If I still played the Piano, I'd probably sound better, or around how he sounded.
Seeing as it would've been my ninth year... =-=;;

I'd say a grade 5~7 on ABRSM could pull it off? :U

I personally like PLAYING the piano than learning theory, though <_<. I sucked at theory and barely scraped through for Grade 8.

I love piano music, too, but I suppose I prefer the more classical compositions. :3 Valentina Igoshima is my favorite pianist, and I love Chopin, Schubert, and Liszt.

Supposedly the saddest melody ever created:
