This Is The Piano I Grew Up Playing / Learned On

10 Jan


This is my mom’s Baldwin Acrosonic from the 1950s. She learned to play piano on it. When I was 9 (or 10?) she gave me my first piano lessons on it. We then moved to Scotland and I played instruments over there in the two houses in which we lived. We moved back 4 years later and we somehow loaded this piano into the back of a minivan down in Del Mar where it had languished at my sister’s house during the early/mid 90s. It has been in L.A. ever since. It’s the piano on which I got my sh*t together. It was my main home axe until I got my Kawai grand in 2005. Friday will be its last day in L.A.. It’s moving with my mom down to San Marcos.
