Playing piano: Gloria Gaynor – I will survive

This blog represents all of my interests, but one thing I didn’t have a chance to tell you about  is that I play piano. I finished the music school, but last years of the school were so frustrating and exhausting that for several years I didn’t come anywhere close to the piano. Piano then moved from my room to the living room and stood there for years waiting for me to re-discover it.

My love for playing piano visited me again while I was studying in US. I discovered there a store with sheet music of so many of my favorite songs and I realized that I’m not forced to play etudes and gamut anymore which were mandatory in music school and I’m absolutely free to play what I want and how I want.

With the internet and so many opportunities to find sheet music and piano tutorials, my love for playing piano grew even stronger. My recent discovery is Chromatik app, which deserves a separate post. App owners add new sheet music every day and it’s available to learn and play for 7 days. Gloria Gaynor’s ‘I will survive’ was one of the recent additions in the app. I love the song and the attitude of being strong and standing up for yourself. I can’t add the sheet music from the app because of copyright. However, while looking through different videos of piano arrangements, I found a video with most beautiful arrangement by Pippo72 that absolutely stole my heart. And the author generously shared the sheet music of his arrangement. I contacted the author and he kindly agreed to let me share the sheet music and video with you.

I’m still learning to play this piece, but once done I hope to add the video of me playing and maybe I will start adding my own videos on YouTube and become vlogger too! đŸ™‚
