    I Love The Other World

    I haven't been playing piano very long and I'm not the best, but I still love it. When I've practiced a song to the point where there are no more mistakes, I love to hear the notes linking together in perfect harmony. I feel like I can get away from everything and clear my mind...

    Pianos

    I love the sound of a piano.. Each little note is comparable to a moment, once one is here it is gone. Similar notes take their place, but they never feel quite the same. They keep dancing, and chiming their sweet tune all throughout the day. I see a piano in a room and there is...

    When I was in Minneapolis,

    I went to Shout House duelling pianos, it was awesome. I enjoy some classical as well, don't really know of much. Especially like Fur Elise. It's kinda magical the sound they make. I suspect I'll try to learn how to play one day.

    My Key (pun Intended) To Sanity

    I love the piano, listening and playing it. I don't understand how people think it sounds bad! When you learn a song and can play it without the sheet music it's the best feeling in the world. Just to sit down and play a beautiful song. I can play for hours. My favorite pieces...

    I'm learning how to place a new song on the

    piano and my hands feel soooo stretched after playing so long. The struggles of having small hands and playing the piano lol. I wish my hands were a little bigger so I could reach the keys more comfortably.

    Soft keys of ivory. Long strings of copper.

    Petals made of wood and cushion. Together colliding in a set of succession. To make the most beautiful sounds. Dark and terrifying. Suspenseful. Or as light as a butterfly landing on flowers. So many wonderful things can come from the piano. With just swift movements or soft and...

    Everything About It..

    I grew up exposed to a lot of different musical instruments.  The piano, I have found, is my favorite. I love the sound of it.  I love how the keys feel on my fingers.  It's one I love to play when I get the chance.  I've always loved piano benches too...

    I Love To Play My Piano Anytime.

    In conversations with people close to me, I can stand up, say "yes, yes I hear you", and start to play on the piano. To play something that was on my mind, something I heard or some sheet I worked earlier. Sometimes it's some kind of escape from the subject of the conversation...
