Piano Lessons: Music, Love & True Adventure
Piano Lessons Music Love True Adventure Author:Noah Adams "Piano Lessons will make you a believer in the quest to find and make music and will have you falling back in love with your own dreams, whatever they may be." John Hockenberry, correspondent, ABC News — "There's been a secret, hiding in my heart about this piano-learning endeavor. Perhaps I do have talent and no one knows. Does the word "chil... more »d" necessarily have to be in front of "prodigy"? Let's say the piano arrives. The shipping blanket is removed. The instrument sits in the darkened room, the chilled steel and copper strings warming. Late in the night the owner comes to the bench, quietly eases back the keyboard cover. With a finger of his right hand he sounds an A. The notes opens from silence and blossoms. A bass note is struck, with force, a G. And another, a B. The low tones are marching into the night. There's a rippling of treble. Then a chord in the left hand, an answering chord from the right. The owner plays a wandering thought...echoes of fifties rock and Ahmad Jamal records and George Shearing and Floyd Cramer....He plays on, and a soft light comes through the window. In another room the dogs sigh, comfortably, on their cushion in front of the fireplace. In the kitchen the owner's wife, stirring honey into her chamomile tea at bedtime, listens and smiles. She is not surprised."
