#beginquote# Thanks, SUZYQ, for your welcome. I know I should get myself a teacher, but I am used to teaching myself things and I am very aware of how much slower everything seems to be with my efforts on the piano than I remember it being with other things I have learnt. I only discovered this site yesterday and it is very helpful. I was browsing through some of the other questions and I noticed that this question about reading music seems to be a big issue so it is not just a matter of age. When I manage to play something at approximately the right speed I often wonder if it is because I am remembering that particular fragment or if my brain is indeed slowly and laboriously rewiring itself to be able to convert the marks on the page into sounds. Perhaps 'reading' music is the wrong term because it leads us to think we will be able to read the piece with as little conscious effort as reading a piece of prose. I started driving lessons last year (temporarily abandoned due to lack of car to practise in) and had the same problem with slow physical coordination. Thanks anyway. #endquote#
