"Bonjour tout le monde :)
J'ai 38 ans et je viens de débuter le piano. J'ai des bases de solfège et déjà tapoté sur un piano. Les partitions de Gilbert m'ont permise de bien placer mes doigts et d'apprendre à mon rythme. Cela fait deux jours que je suis dessus et je connais 3 morceaux de niveau 1 et 2. Alors Gilbert BRAVO et surtout ne t'arrêtes pas..."

Thank you so much Gilbert, for all the trouble you have taken to bring the joy of music into so many people's lives."
