Fun Facts About All Kinds of Stuff!
I started taking piano lessons in 3rd grade. Mrs. Judy Sanders would come by my 3rd grade class on Thursdays and collect a few of us and whisk us off to the music room for 30 minutes of piano instructions. I hated it. Now I hate that I hated it. I took piano on and off for about 3 years. I tell people this and then they are shocked when I tell them I cannot read music. Actually, I am ashamed now as I think about the opportunity I threw away. My parents finally got tired of my whining and complaining and discontinued my lessons for good. My sister, on the other hand, followed through with her piano education and is now the “official” family pianist.
Oh and did I mention that September is National Piano Month? Anyway, all this piano talk prompted me to look for some cool facts about this beautiful instrument. Here are some of the things I learned.

P.S. One of my favorite jazz pianists is Bob James. His best song, in my opinion, is entitled Far From Turtle from the album Grand Piano Canyon. Click to listen and treat your ears to something special. Brian Culbertson comes in a close second with his song entitled Dreams from the album with the same name.
