I Used to Play the Piano

    Memories!

    I use to play piano. My favorite pianists that I looked up to were Chopin and Beethoven... Chopin more so, though. And when I was 13, my parents got me an piano and placed it in the basement. No, they didn't think I played badly! It was the only place for it, since the huge...

    Forgot It All

    I used to play the piano, for a good 5-6 years actually. I don't know why I gave it up. Maybe it was because it was something my parents wanted me to do, and me being the rebellious teen didn't want to do anything they wanted me to do, even if I once loved it. I just wanted to...

    I used to play the piano. I was 5 when my parents bought it. I liked the high black keys. I made "Chinese music". I began lessons...it was ok...something to do. I always felt like a fake. I would get so bogged down in errors. There were lots of good moments though...
