It has been decided, I will try to learn how to play the piano! Although it would be great to learn how to cook, I feel that since I often come home a little late, and don't want to mess up my family's eating schedule, I will just stick with piano. As I have been looking at some videos, I am starting to think I should probably narrow my focus down to a certain song or songs. Not sure if I would want something more modern or an older classic. Two possible options are "Viva La Vida" by Coldplay, or something a little older, such as Mozart's "Symphony No. 40." Either way, I will likely try out a couple songs and then break it down to one or two songs that I want to get really comfortable with. Since I have an electric piano in my house it should not be too difficult a task to attempt. The thing I will have to get used to is learning the different notes on the piano so the songs come a bit more natural. Anyway, I will come back with an update soon.
I am trying to decide on what to do for my 20% Project. The two activities I have narrowed my focus down to are cooking or playing piano. While cooking is something that I believe will be useful throughout my life, the piano is an instrument I briefly attempted to learn to play once before. Both seem to be interesting to learn. I feel cooking is more useful, but it might bring too many investments in buying food, taking the time to cook, and not throwing off my current dinners with the family. Piano on the other hand would simply be a hobby, not something I plan to take any further than an occasional way to pass time. What do you think?
