I haven’t written much about the little one grand piano that sits in our living room, but you might have noticed it in off to the side in photographs over the many years. We owned a simple wood upright piano for a few many years but then gave it away to some close friends when we inherited Matt’s grandfather’s black baby grand 10 years in the past. I was once more considering about the child grand when the bottom of the bench began to bow at the fat of books of music and as I removed them to repair it, I started thumbing through them remembering all the tunes I preserve promising myself I’ll learn to perform someday.
Matt and my middle daughter are the only two that play, I haven’t sat down in a lengthy time although I took lessons many years ago and got pretty great at chords and scales and even discovered to perform a version of “Silent Night” at Christmas a couple of many years ago, although if you asked me to play it now I couldn’t! Everybody who comes into our home is drawn to the little one grand, particularly young children. All of the visiting ones want to play it and it is in no way off limits, even to my two yr outdated nephew as prolonged as it is handled gently.
The piano is a family heirloom and the very first point you see when you stroll into our house. It’s in tune but could use a excellent cleaning and a polish – it will permanently hold sentimental value. Of all the sounds that take place in a home in our media and tech dominated globe, the sound of piano keys nonetheless stays a favored, whether or not it is a child tinkling with the keys or real melodies currently being played.
A infant grand piano is an sophisticated instrument, one that adds an air of formality to a area. When I catch the sight of a grand piano in a property or a hotel lobby, I often pause and smile. Do you?
