Sanjay Aiyar

I started playing piano at age 5 and began lessons with Mrs. Laura around the same time. I kicked off my music career on the ‘Suzuki Book’ track, progressing through the first two books in a few years. After completing Suzuki Book 2, I began to play some more challenging piano pieces, like Sonatina in C Major Op. 36 No. 1 by Muzio Clementi, before beginning to play Chopin. I mastered various Chopin preludes, including the “Raindrop” and Prelude in B Minor Op. 28 No. 6. I then moved onto Chopin’s Op. 64 No. 2 Waltz in C# Minor, which was my largest piece at the time. Following my completion of this Waltz, I played Chopin’s Fantasie-Impromptu in C# Minor. This was my most difficult piece, but through practice and Mrs. Laura’s teaching and feedback, I performed it last year. I then quickly learned the very famous 1st Movement of the “Moonlight Sonata” by Beethoven, before starting Franz Liszt’s Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2 in C# Minor (I like the key of C# Minor). Nowadays, I am working on two pieces, both of them Rhapsodies – the Liszt Rhapsody No. 6 in Db Major and the Brahms Rhapsody in G Minor. Piano has been in my life for twelve years and I cannot imagine living without it!
