God, how I wish I could make music! But a middle-ear infection when I was an infant and a case of viral encephalitis when I was 7 years old robbed me of the greater part of my sense of hearing.
It's funny though; I'm so deaf that I'm completely incapable of picking out the simplest tune on a keyboard, but on an emotional level, I enjoy music as much as the next guy, even though doctors who have X-rayed and tested my ears wonder how I can hear at all.
Thanks for sharing that. You should be very proud of Ryan, mom. (Good name, too, by the way)
Hey, why did you entitle this thread Ryan's Piano Spleen? That's an expression I've never heard before.
requested by ryan's classmates to play.. [most of the music he plays are challenges and requests by his friends].
He listens to the music for awhile, then practice by ear for a few days.
I wrote 'piano spelen'.. [not spleen] and it's dutch for piano playing [one of our languages here]
I saw "spleen" (an organ in the human body that reprocesses dead red blood cells, because I'm a Doctor of Medicine) whereas you wrote "spelen", a word with which I am totally unfamiliar, because you live in the Dutch West Indies, while I lived in the French West Indies. Although we did make many trips to the Dutch side of St. Maarten (26 Nautical Miles from my home on St. Barth) back in the day; the doctors there were quite free and easy with that Methadone.
Ryan's still playing piano music, and he has over 2,000 subscribers for his vids already.
I will be going to see Stevie Wonder perform tonight here in Curacao! [North Sea Jazz Festival]
[looking forward to this, but hoping I won't get too emotional, because i've loved Stevie since I was 12 years old.
People from all over the world is already here on the island for the 3-days concerts, to see other performers as well.. like Sting, Diane Warwick, etc.,
So far over 10,000 tickets sold, and already last night the first concert, and the city is crazy packed. [no wonder I just woke up from a dream that I got lost in a crowd, and couldn't find hubby].. hehe

He's played quite a number of beautiful music that he hears, and here he is playing the music of Dax Johnson that he listens to first, then go and play it:
If you have a youtube account, feel free to leave a comment for him ^_^
