The sound of piano......

Whenever I have headaches, I'll go and play my piano. I feel that, by playing it, the music soothes my mind as I get more and more engrossed in the music. Many people who learn the piano, plays it to relieve stress. When I was younger, I didn't realize it as I was just playing for the sake of playing. As my teacher gave me Richard Clayderman's music pieces, plus the fact that I loved his music, slowly I got more and more engrossed. So whenever I feel stressed pr have headaches, I'll play the piano, especially his music. Oh god, the sound of the piano just sounds so heavenly...

Hmmmmm, I'll try listening to some of that when I get another headache.. thanks! Well, I really had interest on playing the piano before but, I was fortunate enough to start at a very young age. Now that I am already old, I think it is too late for me to learn at all. Never the less, I think listening to good music does indeed make one feel at ease.

Hahaha! Thanks for understanding the idea in my post, I just realized after reading my post again that I was inconsistent with my statements, fortunate should have been unfortunate Well, I guess you are right, as long as you want to learn, it doesn't matter what age you start with.. well, as long as you can still perceive through your senses..

This is one of the many regrets I have in my life. When I was young, my mom sent me to an old piano teacher who taught me widow. I just learned old songs which I guess she learned by hearing. When I was in high school, I took it as an elective and finised kindergarten-piano. Now, I don't remember any of my lessons. I do think that the sound of the keys would be soothing and would help relieve a lot of stress. Maybe I should get one and try to re-learn it!

I hear ya! I am not sure what it is about the piano but it is a very soothing instrument, although technically it is percussive in nature! I love to sit and play and sometimes I just play through fun chords and all as I am not really accomplished at playing anything! But it is a very soothing thing to do!
