Ever since I was a child I (LOVE) piano music, though until recently I (NEVER HAVE) the chance to play myself. A few months ago I (START) having lessons at the adult education college in my town. It was hard at first, but Sarah, my teacher says that now I (MAKE) good progress.

I’m a computer programmer and usually (WORK) long hours, so I don't have much spare time. I (PRACTICE) several times a week, but unfortunately the piano (BELONG) to my neighbours, so I only play when it's convenient for them. Now I (THINK)about buying my own piano, so that I can play whenever I (LIKE).

Every year there's a concert at the college, and some of the music students are asked to perform. For three weeks I (PRACTICE) a piece by Shostakovich, and I hope I'll be good enough to play it in the next concert.

Sarah suggested that I take a piano exam next year but I (NOT DECIDE) yet. It (DEPEND) on whether I can afford to buy a piano myself.
