    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...

    The sound of the piano,

    really does come from the heart, or else it just wouldn't sound right. I love the feeling you get when you play the right song at the right time ❤️ perfection.

    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...

    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...

    Appreciate

    I was sent to piano lessons religiously, early every Saturday morning for a long time, as a child.  I never practiced and to me it was torture.  I was told that I would regret having the chance and not taking full advantage of it.  I determined that I...

    Oh Piano, How I Love Thee

     I took 3 years of lessons as a kid, and my teacher moved away.   Didn't touch the piano for at least 12 years, then, when my parents wanted to get rid of our piano, I took it in. I have been playing again now for 6 years, and can pick out tunes and simple chords of...

    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...

    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...

    I love the sound of someone playing the piano, the ability to create something that sounds so complex and beautiful out of something that looks so simple. I am not a musically talented person but I really appreciate those who are and really wish I was!

    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...
