No Coasters Allowed

Every blogger has his founding moment. Mine was buying a piano.


Not for coasters

Today marks its two week anniversary. My flatmate and I found it on Craigslist (What can’t you find there?). It’s no Steinway, but for the price tag, it exceeded my expectations. The piano is a console model by Story & Clark. Its range of tone isn’t too shabby, though the piano would benefit from some service.

In a previous life, I was a music major and piano man. I’m now a graduate student in English Literature. With little time to practice, I’ve shifted my attention from pyrotechnics to the pursuit of tone, which is less time-consuming and more promising a goal for an amateur like myself. YouTube, here I come!
