I have a confession to make. I’m going to be 50 years old this coming January 26. But also, my wife surprised me by giving me the best birthday gift that a musician and pianist could ever receive… a brand new grand piano!
It’s a Yamaha C2 5’8″ Conservatory Grand in polished ebony finish, and it was the one I tested at a piano warehouse last month. Actually, I got it last month just before Christmas because my wife wanted me to play Christmas songs on it. I didn’t want to make a big deal about it, but I might as well let everyone know that I got it and I’m so happy. I’ve been practicing every day on it, hours at a time.
Maybe she felt sorry for me because I was a pianist without a keyboard for so long, but I do know that I am deeply grateful and forever indebted to her for buying me the grand piano. And now I can spend the rest of my days playing piano every day….
