Diabetic Pianists


Diabetic Pianists

I am a pianist and also teach piano. I love talking to other pianists and other diabetics so I thought I'd make a place for people who are both to get together!

Thanks so much! I really do enjoy it. And thats true, it will keep me from being proud :) All it makes me be all the more happy when I do well. Do you have any videos I could see of you playing?

Listened to your Hungarian piece. Liked it. I think you're doing very well for only playing 3 1/2 years. And you seem to enjoy it - THAT's what matters most. After 15 years, I'm sorry to say the being nervous sometimes never goes away... but it does help keep us from being proud and making even more mistakes. :-)

That more then counts!! I've only been playing for 3 and1/2 years myself cause I got a late start but I love it. I teach begginers and we have atleast 2 big recitals a year. I make mistakes sometimes but cant say its been blood sugar related more just being nervous for no reason and making fumble finger mistakes. Heres a link to my youtube. I'd love to hear what you think!!

Does 15 years of playing keyboard/piano by ear using guitar chords count? I've been a type-1 diabetic since 1984 and on the pump since 1996. I play piano in a local praise band. By biggest problem is never at rehearsal, but sometimes during a live run I can not for the life of me remember how to play a chord - soon discover my sugars are off. Duh. You'd think I would remember to check EACH time before a performance, but in the rush of things I sometimes forget.
