    I don't know how long I've played the piano.

    I have always used piano as my escape from the world. Anyone else feel this way?

    I love the piano, and I wrote a few songs a

    while back. I asked friend to help me with what I couldn't get, I found out then that I had a thing for women who can play the piano really well. My friend figured it out, and she tortured me the whole time writing my songs, and her boyfriend thought it was the funniest thing...

    Sunday afternoons are very much family

    afternoons. My Mother is a keen pianist and she plays Catalan songs for us after our lunchtime meal. I have several classical pianist likes, including Chopin, of course!

    I was always fascinated with the melody

    produced by the piano. I would sit in church and watch the pianist hands throughout the whole song. I have a grand piano at home and up until a year ago I played every morning. I need to get back to what I love.

    Been playing the the piano

    since I've been a little boy. Beautiful music is therapeutic and touches the soul. I'm not a professional, but just hearing from a few sounds on the keys makes me connect with my romantic soul.

    The richness of the sound,

    the delicacy of the keys, the... I sound like such a pompous *** right now, but honestly, the piano is probably the most versatile, beautiful instruments I've ever heard, and I will love it forever.

    The feeling I get when I slide my hands down

    the keys is amazing. I feel like I'm not even there anymore. All stress is gone and I'm not thinking about anything else in my life except for the music flooding my mind and awaking my senses.

    my fingers find the right keys to do so.

    When I was a child, me

    and my sister shared the same room for several years. She was 7 years older than me and played the piano and had to practice a lot. This is why we had a grand piano in our room, it took the third of the room space. I remember I played with my Lego railway under the piano. :) So...

    My music teacher spends at least 15 minutes

    playing the piano in class, and I absolutely love it! Most of the time it's pretty classical or jazzy, but, no matter what, I'm mesmerized by the sound of keys being played in perfect rhythm.

    I could listen to piano music all of the time.

    I have a friend who has a piano with a computer in it. You put in a disk and it plays itself. I am mesmerized by watching those keys moving independently, especially during 'Hotel California' by The Eagles. . I wish they were my own fingers on the keys. I keep threatening...

    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've own pianos and keyboards

    for years, but never formally learned to play. After years of kicking myself, I started taking classical piano lessons in the last quarter of this year and love it. I've traded my guitar addiction for keyboards now :)

    One minute I'm in the band room at school

    eating lunch, and the next minute, I'm in a bed of soft grass tucked away in a twilight forest, a world far away. The best way to dream is to the sounds of a piano, these sounds are the ones that take me to such surreal imaginative worlds, and I love it so.

    Just want to share with you all a piece

    that I've been playing for... a whole year and two months now. This piece gets me every time I play it, and I hope you'll feel why. <3 This is probably my all time favorite transcription/song from sao. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qvxLTOTeCLE

    I can't play it but I love to listen to him

    play, fingers gliding across the keys of the piano, music filling the air. Of all the instruments, the piano is the one that I love best. I find an inner peace in the music and helps me think.
