I don't know why, I've just lost the desire to play piano. It's gone and it's apparently not coming back. I find the practice boring, tedious and pointless. SO much so, I've sold my piano and will be glad to never see one again. Sorry to disappoint. Maybe I just pushed for technical perfection to the point of burnout. I've even closed my studio. I'm a CPhT, Certified pharmacy technician, now. I can't even remember why I wanted to attain such a level of skill at the piano. I look back at it and think "I had an unhealthy obsession", well the obsession is gone and so is the music, unfortunately. I don't know what happened. One day, during practice I just "snapped", got this sense of rage, slammed down the cover and never touched the keys again. It's been a year since I've played. I don't even listen to Classical music any more. I find it unmoving and pedantic. As of now, I'm probably as confused as you are, but it is what it is. I even had a brain scan to make sure I didn't have something physiologically wrong with me, all results negative. Anyway it's been fun hanging out, but I don't fit this niche anymore. I'm too busy at work to spend much time in forums anymore, so don't be surprised if this is the last you hear from me.
