The piano

I've always wanted to play the piano....I learnt to play the recorder at school.. I loved it ...and I still do... but I've always looked at people whose fingers fly over the piano keys with some sort of envy... I go to Omar Khairat's concerts and sit at the front where I can watch his fingers... I enjoy the music immensely but the way piano players' fingers glide over those keys never seizes to amaze me... I just love it... some day inshAllah, when I have time, I'll learn how to play... but for the time being I'll just have to imagine that I'm playing the piano when my fingers fly over the keyboard as I type...

I've always loved listening to and seeing people play the piano. Tried playing it for a while myself, learning small bits from my friends. Learning to coordinate your fingers like that, it really is amazing!

I remeber going to my cousin's house in New orleans when i was little and he used to have his friend harry come over and play piano. harry sure could play piano well.

I'd love to learn to play too.
Alina's right, it's all about co-ordination.

i do play the piano but not like Omar Khayrat. I just love Omar Khayrat and Yanni. If you have never heard for Yanni get the "At The Acropolis" album for him and listen to the third song named "Until the last moment" it is my favourite i can hear it througout the yearrrrrrr over and over again ;)
