Présentation de l'éditeur

What follows is a story of piano playing journey from a kid without access to the piano to a man who plays casual concert recitals. I am not, strictly speaking, a professional. But I would categorize myself as a semi-professional. I have other things that I do, but playing the piano is my passion. And I’ve gotten good enough at it to perform live in front of people.

I’m writing this because my journey is not typical. I did not get professional lessons throughout childhood and develop a skill the way a person that goes to school would. You could call my method the “hard knock method”. If you are an academic, you probably would want to all theory before you started to play (as some teachers may suggest), but my method was just to flow in the piano and maybe even find my own style without the preconceived notions that come with traditional teachings. My point is the following: you can pursue a passion while overcoming obstacles along the way. Failing and retrying builds character, even if there is a rather substantial layoff period, as there was with me. In the end I want my story to be one of inspiration. It’s never too early, it’s never too late.

You are here for a reason. Let’s get started.

A deep yearning, a desire so strong it is called a passion. This book is the story of a man who took his passion and through obstacles and difficulties, developed it into something he could share his heart with others through. My love for piano music came from a member of our church. He caught my attention at a young age playing chopsticks in different languages. The exact same melody with a totally different sound. My favorite one was the Oriental rendition. I felt like it transported me to the Orient and I floated to a different world.
Through trial and error, through the tough times of not owning something you must have at your fingers to learn to play, the man never gave up his dream. I wonder if I would have the determination shown by Bradley, even when he had to let go for 15 years. I wish I could say yes, but alas, I’m afraid I would have chosen something a bit easier to have with me, maybe a flute or even a harmonica!
I found this story so inspirational that I called up my trainer and scheduled horseback riding lessons again. That has been my passion since I was a child, and in the last 10 years, I pretty much had given up, and rode only a few times a year. In reading the adversities Bradley overcame, I gained new confidence in my own passion and love for horses.
If you have an unrequited dream and wish for inspiration to go and achieve, you will find it in this book! May that spark of your dream bring forth a mighty fire within that helps you regain the passion for that which you once loved.

Its been such a long time since I have read a good inspirational book. “In Playing Piano, Passion is everything” by Bradley Jenkinson is just that book. Bradley shows that if you have dreams, then never give up on them. That if you keep moving towards them, you can accomplish those dreams. As he points out in this book there is always going to be those trying to stand in your way, but to just forget them. Keep the faith that these dreams will happen with just that, the faith. I have a few dreams I have been wanting accomplished , and was so close to giving up on till I read this book. Seems I always get someone trying to stop those dreams, or telling me it won't happen. I may not know when its going to happen, but I am going to make it happen. Just watch and see I am going to make this book a reality for me and my dreams.

I found this book to be very inspirational! As humans we all find some type of passion and dream as we live life. Having the willingness to go for that dream and meet our goals can be difficult, even if the opportunity presents itself many times over. The author describes his struggles and success in a way that everyone can relate. You don't have to be a musician to appreciate this book. Anyone pursuing any type dream, can take the advice and experiences in this book, and apply it to their life. This book is a huge help to anyone needing encouragement! I love that the author kept pressing forward to meet his goals and fulfill his passion of piano, in spite of time lost and obstacles he faced. I also respect that he also defined the word "Passion" in it's true form. The most awesome outcome was that he chose to pay it forward, and write this book to inspire others, and even offer his teachings. I can relate to every struggle and triumph in this amazing short book. It is a must read for anyone needing a little lift of spirits. The true message from this book is to never give up just keep moving forward, and things will work out if you are passionate and willing.

Anyone looking for a book to encourage them should read this book. It doesn’t matter what you are trying to accomplish you just need a little push to see that anything is possible. While this book may be about a man overcoming his struggles throughout life to achieve his lifelong passion from boyhood to manhood, he thoroughly encourages anyone to take a leap of faith. He shows that the obstacles of life that get in the way should not stop you from trying to succeed. Bradley continued to return to his passion for the piano again and again, even after a 15 year break. So Bradley says, (which is true) that one should never give up on their dreams. Just because it doesn’t work out the first, second, or even the third time. Find a new way to make it possible and if you see an opportunity, then go for it. It might be the opportunity of a lifetime that just might payoff in the long run.

Wow! Does that very famous quote have meaning with this real-life journey of a young man’s passion for such a majestic instrument. This ebook is for anyone that has the same passions for something in their life; as this author so eloquently recalls his story… Being a piano fan myself, and loving the musical sounds of the piano, I can hear every key being played as I read this magnificent ebook. You, too, will hear notes being performed with every word that you read, and you will be inspired by this authors relentless attempts at doing what he absolutely loves…playing piano! . A must read for all who dream.
