So basically I want to learn a soft and kind of chilled out romantic classical piece.
It would be nice if it wasnt TOO difficult, on an intermediate level, but it won't matter.

Any advices are wellcome Smile Thank you

Perhaps you could try out a piece that I've been playing, Gymnopedie no. 1 by Erik Satie.
Sheet music
A video on YouTube
I hope that's "chilled out", I'm not quite sure what that means Razz (I'm a Finn).

The 1st movement of Moonlight Sonata is really romantic if you've played it before. If not, try it out! It's not that difficult.

Yea it's a great song, when I was in my early teen's i learned the whole 1st movement in a week Very Happy by the end of the month i could play the whole thing BLIND FOLDED note perfect Very Happy It was one of my favorite songs. The reason i learned to play it blind folded was so that I could play it at night in the dark....hehe Smile good memories!
