    When I sit at each ebony

    and ivory key, all 88 scream my name, whining for me to play. Each touch of my finger makes the mallet hit and force the strings to vibrate, 3-2-1, highest to lowest, pitches and resonates in the air around my ears, pushing itself deeper into my brain. Slowly memorizing...no...

    As mentioned in my previous post,

    I have had a rough life and having nobody to share my thoughts and emotions to, it was hard. There was one thing though that I found myself turning to every time that I felt like crying or giving up or anything of the such. Piano. I'm not good Pianist at all but playing simple...

    A Long Lost Dream

    Ever since I was a little kid, I've always dreamed of playing the piano. Everything about the piano, is just fascinating! I love closing my eyes and listening to Moonlight Sonata (mvt. 1) by Beethoven. I love seeing all the images dance around in my head. I always dreamed of...

    My piano playing is an unprincipled celebration

    of sound. The closest i've ever heard on a cd to what i sound like is Herbert Henck's Festeburger Fantasien.

    My Piano Experience

     When I was two years old, I experienced the piano for the first time. A woman sat down at my grandmother's piano, and started playing a hymn. To my childish ears, it sounded like water falling out of the keyboard. I was pulled to the instrument, like an iron filing to a...

    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.

    I never played the piano

    for almost 11 months now just because I am suffering from depression, my grandpa died without hearing me play and he was the reason why I even started to learn the piano. I just realized that now that he is in a better place and always with me, he can hear my cries, my screams...

    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 am the pianist for my school's jazz ensemble.

    I love to fool around on the piano, learning how to solo over different L.H. bass lines and learning new exercises of how to strengthen the connection between my ear, and the music I'm playing. I found a really great sounding voicing that I'm practicing in all keys at the moment...

    Playing The Piano Makes Life Worth Living...

    I love nothing more than sitting down with

    other musicians and jamming. In band rehearsals and jam sessions, I'm always the last one still playing. To interact on-the-spot with other musicians is a beautiful experience that I've always been fascinated by and hooked on.

    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...
