Stories about people's Für Elise experiences
The piece that followed one all through school
This story was submitted by Vivs Yemenian and was added around May 2008.
It all started when I was in primary school. I had heard of Fur Elise but I never really thought it was a famous piece. When my parents seperated at the age of 10, he met another women and she came from a musical background. Anyway when I go into year 5, I wanted to do something for the Talent quest, which was at the end of the year. So she had a piano at her house and she started to teach me a few pieces. And as luck would have it, she taught me how to play Fur Elise, although I don't know how to play the whole thing. Anyway I played it for the talent quest, however, I didn't win a prize :'(. Anyway, year 8 at school now and I'm doing an assignment on it. I think it's a wonderful piece.
