Last night I stayed up for a while and watched videos of performances of some old songs I wrote.

And while at times I smiled and was genuinely enjoying the music, other times I winced, and had to skip past some lines I really didn’t like, lines that if I wrote now I would replace before recording.

Yet at the time it was the right thing to do to record them, to release them, perform them. Despite how I felt last night.

Because if I hadn’t, I would be including lines like that in my next song. Thinking they were great and not realising they’re actually not for another few years.

You learn by doing.

I'm Kieran and I play piano. Actually I do a bit more than just playing - I teach others how to play, and I write music, arrange it and host/produce shows.
