You were grand, but it was time to make some changes.
Yes, on Saturday I said goodbye to my piano. It wasn’t a grand, it was a Baldwin Hamilton studio upright that I bought used when I lived in North Carolina. It was the piano I cut my teeth on when I started lessons around age 35.
I’ve moved it twice and always enjoyed having it around. But these last few years I wasn’t playing much at all. I was too concerned about noise and neighbors. So it mostly sat and drifted out of tune.
As you can see, I replaced it with a keyboard— a digital piano really. I quite like the touch and the sound of it so far. Plus, the headphones are a great feature, as is having a volume knob.
Hi he only thing I don’t like is the height of the music rest. So I think I am going to solve that by putting a floating shelf on my gallery wall to raise the music for practice. And which can double as a shelf for things like a metronome or objets d’art.
