Let me give some background briefly. I am trained as a guitarist. I learned jazz theory and improvisation through private instruction. My classical background is through self study. I have worked through Harmony, Counterpoint and some Orchestration but do not claim to be an expert. I have always written out every thing I composed so that I am comfortable reading, at least in bass and treble clefs. I have a digital piano with weighted keys and have noodled with it throughout the years. I have set about to get a bit more serious about my piano playing so that I can use the instrument to play and edit the ideas I conceive rather than having to rely on software; and also so I can play through some of the repertoire to enhance my understanding of form. I have no aspirations to be a concert pianist-believe me. As I said I am comfortable reading and I know all the notes on the piano very well. Finding the notes is not the problem-doing so at tempo is. Because of my training as a guitarist I am right at home with the notion of a theory/technique of fingering and through some books and just plain reasoning I am getting of sense of what it means to come up with the best fingerings for any given passage. Right now I am writing out original counterpoint and then reading it for sight reading and, having exhausted it for that use, memorizing it for technique/muscle memory. I am also practicing conceiving ideas at the piano. I have some studies but do not do them daily but I stjil do something daily to work on technique. And I try to daily set aside time to work with a metronome.
Having set out that rather long winded preface I am interested in any suggestions pianists might have. Taking lessons is not an option at this point in my life and the insights of those who have far more experience than I can, I am sure, be invaluable and save me some mistakes and heartache. Thanks.
