I was in high school when I started playing keyboard. I liked it pretty much that I decided along with my friends to have our own band. We had a lot of fun and we called our band BOOM TAK  , actually Eddie suggested this name and we found it kind of cool. We played most styles of music but we knew that the jazz was our style. We used to practice three times a week in our garage for two full years. We got to play in several occasions in our school. After two years my family had to move to another city so we left and I had to leave my band behind and ever since I never got an opportunity to play keyboard again. Couple of months ago I decided to go back to practicing and may be one day I will have another band.

Hello Guys,
I play the piano and I like, now, the classic music and Johann Sebastian Bach is my favourite musician. But, when I was young I played only rock music in a rock band named "Rock Crystal" ... Oh my dears! Believe me! We broke, of course, many crystals with the sound of our instruments!
Bye for now

Hi there,
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, earlier I wrote Wolfgang Mozart Amadeus.
Nice day,

Hi Angelo Scalisi,

You got the same taste as me about music "classical music", but I don't play any musical intrument & not with your favourite composer I must admited (mine is Wolfgang Mozart Amadeus). Johann Sebastian Bach, I do like his music though but not as my favourite composers.
Great day,


Very plendid, I am very like the piano but i don't like . You 're very wonderful
Good luck

Am from Ethiopia.Am so glad meeting the learn english group .  Most of the time I used english as a learning and  working  language for longer period of time . But am not fluent . I can listen and understand the language beter than writing and speking. My question is How can i improve this problems?

Hello Eskedar,
It's hard for me to diagnose exactly what your problem is via the internet. It might be that you don't practise your speaking and writing enough. It might be that you are a perfectionist who is nervous about expressing yourself in case you make a mistake. It might be that you have some specific problems with your grammar.
Have a think and maybe you will find the reason for your problem yourself!
