RDP Friday: Keyboard

Yes, I have a keyboard belonging to my elecctric piano. I grew up with a piano at home. Even we poor families in the east End of London had a piano at home. My mum would play and my Aunt would play. They could not read sheet music, it was just a thump, thump, thump, but for a party it was good enough. Most of the tribe were happy with the drink supply and no-one really knew the music, it was just a party singalong.

Then I grew up, went to high school and had piano lessons, so our old piano was still in use, this time with the music notes. I had lessons for 5-6 years and my music knowledge progressed, but unfortunately the piano got lost on the way and a few strings broke in the meanwhile. I moved on in life, eventually arrived in Switzerland, got married, and yes, we got a piano. I eventually got this electric piano and was back in business, slthough just played for fun, This time no-one had to suffer as I had ear phones.

Today the piano stayes silent. I would like to play again, but my MS has slowed down my hands and it is no longer such fun, but we have a piano. It now supports family photos and a few paintings from Mr.Swiss. He also has a few photos there from his music friends when he played drums in various jazz groups.
