I started playing the piano when I was 6 years old and never looked back. I love pianos and everything about them, a fact shown by my own antique piano from the 1890s. In fact, as much as I love playing, one of the things I've always loved even more is watching a piano get tuned. Growing up, no matter how old I was, I needed to be home to watch the tuner. He seemed to be a magician of sorts, working with the piano to make it sound beautiful again.
