My Favorite Things Monday – My piano

Today, my allergies are really acting up! I feel gross, have almost no voice, and just wanted to stay in bed this morning.  One thing helped changed my negative outlook on the day into a positive one… my piano. I may not be a concert pianist or a beautiful solo performer, but I love to play and I enjoy teaching an instrument that people can play their whole lives. If I’m having a bad day, am in a foul mood, or just need a minute to unwind, there is nothing like sitting down at my piano and playing a tune. Somehow, just taking a minute to indulge in music making for myself turns my whole mood around.

My piano was a gift from a few of my family members.  It was my Aunt’s piano, before she passed.  Her husband and children wanted it to go to a good home where it would be played and loved.  I can promise, it is both well loved and played often!

When I play my piano I am filled with joy, remembering holiday and family gatherings where one person would start playing and soon we’d have the rest of the family standing around singing in four part harmony.   I remember my mom trying to teach me to play and my sister and I playing duets.   Every time I sit down at my piano, it’s like I’m in a different world.  Playing piano is a relaxing, joyous, enthralling escape.

In teaching, I want to share that joy                                    and love of music more than anything.

I want to share the passion for                                            life long music making and learning.
