Music Parlor

Although I had renovated all five bedrooms in our old Sears-type 2-story house for use as our guesthouse, and we had used all five as such until recently, I was wont to move my old piano back home and out of my father-in-law’s basement where it’s been these past two years.  Jay Shearer, our piano tuner, came Thursday morning, so it’s sounding great.

So, the former master bedroom is now a music parlor.  I plan to purchase a queen size futon, so a quick bed can be made if necessary, but with two children moved out by and large, we still have two bedrooms open upstairs.  When i had four strong boys available, they moved a lot of furniture around, including moving the queen size bed upstairs to Jessica’s room.  It’s kind of big for that room, but it’s more comfortable sleep in than the full/double size she did have.

Shabbat Shalom!

This is the first book I started with when I started lessons at age 9 – the same time my grandparents bought this piano for me.  They paid $950 for it in 1971 and our piano tuner appaised it a few years ago for $950.  But an ebay search shows this style more in the $650 range now.
