It’s funny how, when reflecting on childhood memories, some adults recall the piano as a monstrous creature sitting in a corner of the living room. The piano (or, more likely, the teacher) may have become a symbol to us of anxiety and fear, especially on piano lesson days. Even at an early age, we may have vowed never to subject anyone else to this form of “punishment.”
Today, as parents, we look at our children and wonder if those little hands of theirs aren’t just the right size to take the world by storm. “Maybe this kid’s going to feel the need to play the blues someday. Or maybe Brahms!” And for ourselves (whether we have kids or not), a voice inside may be saying: “It’s time to stop merely listening to music. It’s time to give yourself another chance.”
As we get close to Halloween, when ghost and goblins and monsters in costume abound, why not get a “monster” of your own—a piano—to put in your living room? Get over your fears and make some beautiful music!
