I've heard about him through my sister, since I make music as a hobby, and she says I sound like him...so I snapped up one of his albums at the first opportunity. I don't think she was right about me sounding like him, but holy DAMN, if he's not one of my favorite artists now...

...AWESOME musician.

I'm a Yanni fan. I first heard his music when my mom showed it to me 2 years ago, when I was 11. I have 3 of his CD's: Yanni Live At The Acropolis, Yanni Live! The Concert Event and Yanni Voices.

At the time I couldn't play an instrument but I really wanted to learn one. After hearing his music I begged my mom to let me get a piano. Finally after begging her for about 2 months, I finally got one. Right away I was signed up for piano lessons and today I am still learning to play his songs!

If you decide you want to pursue music as a career, I suggest you go to college to become a music school teacher. Give yourself a backup plan in music while you try making a go of it the recording biz. Please don't rely on how your talent will bring you to success. By all means, if you love playing and want record it go for it! Just don't rely on a contract and always have a music oriented back up plan like teaching.
