Next to soaping and cooking, playing the piano is my most favorite thing in the world to do. I can't tell you how wonderful it feels to be able to sit at the piano and just have something beautiful come out. It's a dream come true. I always yearned to learn the piano as a child, but our family never had the means to do so. Fast forward to my 30's.......my musician hubby (trumpet) got me started by buying me a digital piano and teaching me to read music, but that's as far as he could take me because he doesn't play piano, so from there I just started learning on my own through books and online tutorials until my musically talented niece got her music degree. She comes over once a week to give me lessons and she's helped take me to the next level and has me playing things I never thought I'd be able to play in a million years. I'm living proof that you're never too old to learn an instrument if you have the passion to want to learn.
