    Films without score

    Are there any sites where I can download a free movie without the film score? I want to learn to write music using only visual images. I'm not selling or distributing anything. It is for my edification only. Thanks

    Beethoven's Op 27 No. 2 1st mvt

    Difference among Yamaha AvantGrands

    Music & Ballet

    My wife and I just saw a documentary on Rudolph Nureyev. He didn't begin learning ballet until he was 11. That got me to thinking if any professional musicians didn't start learning to play until later in life, maybe after they retired.

    Hanon Virtuoso Pianist - Hands
