From the age of 5 until I was about 17-18 years old I studied classical piano. I had to beg the parents for a solid year to get some lessons and after wearing them down the church organist was recruited and a crappy old Korg organ was acquired. To this day I have no clue where it came from and was (and still am) convinced my dad found it in an alley. It was a total piece of shit and the cord was held together with electrical tape and had very limited sounds but I loved that thing and learned and obsessed and showed them I was serious as fuck when it came to piano lessons. The Korg eventually led to a proper upright piano and lessons at a small conservatory and the expectation of performing at recitals and competitions.
These days the only time I get to play my piano are the times I find myself at my parents’ house alone. With a musically-curious Baby Bee in tow and a rambunctious nephew it’s hard to get a few moments with the piano to myself. I’ve been considering trolling Craigslist for a used keyboard that can be discreetly stored in my 1000 sq. ft home but I’m a bit of a chicken when it comes to Craiglist. So if you know of someone or are a someone with a keyboard that needs a good home hit me up. My family and neighbors will thank you. I honestly didn’t mean this to turn into a personal ad, ah well.
In the meantime I’ll troll YouTube for tutorials and take notes that will travel with me to Berwyn at some point this weekend.
