    The piano and I go way back.

    I met her when I was 5, she was so full of pain and love. I was so overwhelmed by the feelings she brought out. I wanted to be able to feel the emotions, so mom set me up with lessons. Been hooked ever since. One good thing about having big hands, they are great piano players...

    I feel that music is my escape.

    . I feel like playing the piano when I'm mad. Ot just makes me feel relaxed and not tense about it. It makes me think that music covers it up. Covers everything..

    I love the piano, it's my favorite instrument

    to listen to. So because of this I decided to teach myself to learn, I managed to get the basics down with a breeze (as a side note I was using a small one handed like kids piano). While I was in High School I had my friend teach me more complex songs (like Fur Elise, cause I...

    It takes me away from the real world.

    Throughout the songs, it's like I'm in a new world, the song is my world. It feels like I don't have any worries, it feels like I'm free of the pain I feel and go through every day. It relaxes me and I just love playing and learning everyday. I get through my darkest moments by...

    as long as I manage to recreate those pieces I love, I'm happy. To think soon I'll have to move permanantly where I can't bring my piano makes me so depressed right now...

    Another World

    Playing the piano makes me feel like i'm in a different world. It's a time where i forget about reality. Where you can express your emotions through the pieces you play. Expressive & beautiful.
