My first music teacher was a dark-haired, medium-sized young man. He was teaching us guitar lessons 🎸. We started with music theory lessons in a choir. There, we read and repeat together the notes of the scores. Then we move on to the practice sessions on the instruments. The teacher helps us to pronounce the musical phrases correctly. He goes between the rows and listens if the students continue the rhythm and corrects our mistakes. Sometimes he sits at the piano and starts playing and we follow him.
I can’t play the piano, but I think it’s a beautiful thing to be able to play the piano. I don’t think it’s easy to play the piano well. So I think it’s cool.
Hello. I’m Danijela.
My favourite instruments are piano and violin. I don’t know how to play and I think knowing how to play some instrument is amazing.
Thank you very much Maestro Sersea.
In my high school I never had a special teacher, but I studied guitar at a music school. When I finished high school, I went to music school every afternoon to learn guitar and copy some sheet music for my teacher.
All musical instruments have their particular aspects that make them special. The guitar seems incredible to me; I love it and still do it.

I like listening to music. During my exercise, I am on my musical channel and enjoy both of them, but I hardly have the knowledge of musical instruments. Only know the name of some, like Piano, Guitar, Saxophone, flute, and our folk musical instruments Dholak and chimta found in Punjab (Pakistan )
I used to play Basketball in school and college life in the 50s back in past. II was very impressed by my PE teacher. I was a good basketball player. we used to have our practice after school and had great fun.

I think so, because of I love music and I learned to play the guitar when I was only a child my granph taught me, sometimes I download lyrics with accords to play in my guitar is something in which I enjoy spend my free time. too.
