Now, when surrounded by friends around the piano enjoying an evening together, it is quite satisfying to be the life of the party. Wherever I go, when I see a grand piano, it is just too hard to resist to play a tune. It takes me to another place. I always envision a magical woods where elves are dancing and the centaurs are keeping time. I must say, I am so glad my parents made the effort to give me piano lessons when I was young.
Owning a grand piano is a joy. I was unable to afford one until I saw that some piano stores offered a grand rental. This is an amazing opportunity, piano rental has allowed me to acquire an instrument that would have been out of reach. With a grand rental, I am able to entertain my friends, but more importantly, find that magical place within myself each time I sit on the bench and hear that first resounding note.
A friend of mine asked that I play for her wedding reception. This was quite an honor, and I was a little nervous! People commented they wished they could serenade the crowd. Since then, two other friends have asked that I be a part of their wedding celebrations. And I could not be happier!
But for me, it is all about returning to the magical woods. When I am a little lonely, or if life is getting to be too stressful, I find myself migrating toward those black and white keys and the tension melts away. I am back in a world where there is only happiness to be found.
Do you play the piano? It is never too late to learn! Have you considered a grand rental or a purchase of your own? When you sit down at the keys, where does it take you? I would really like to know, as music is such a fundamental part of my life, it pleases me to hear other people enjoy it just as much!
