    Canon in D By: Johann Pachelbel --- The piece that i consider the best before the classical period. I enjoy playing that song. I am on my sixth year of piano playing, I started when I was 8 years old. I also composed two songs already, all in minor! :) I am currently working on a third song.

    I've been playing for 13 years now and I'm a real jazz nut. I don't even use sheet music anymore. All that matters is the feeling. Listen to jazz artists like Count Basie and Thelonius Monk. Then just... throw away all your books and start playing whatever your mind wants to hear. :)

    Really long and complicated, Sonatinas are shorter and simpler...pretty intermediate level...Sonata's are just damn amazing and hard to play....in some parts of the songs...

    From the sound of it, it's not the sort of stuff you're looking for, but I heard a guy called Maksim Mrvic play Flight of the Bumble Bee on the piano recently and that rocked :)

    Apparently he released an album at the beginning of this month, so he probably has other stuff, but I can't find any of it on Kazaa :hmm:

    I just picked up the sheet music for some of the scores from both Lord of the Rings movies the other day. It's really nice to play, nothing difficult by any means, but it sounds beautiful :)
