Monomad - Practice time

Years and years ago I started piano classes in a local music school. Very shortly after we got this very old piano. Of course it was second hand, but that is what makes it so special. It is one of a kind and not like all those brand new, shiny from the shop.
I don't know where exactly it comes from. But it has amazing carvings around the edges and legs. It also has very yellowed keys and specific old wood smell when you open it. And I love it!

I have spent hours and hours practicing on it. And them my little brother too.
Now, many years after, it desperately needs tuning and some loving. I still remember how to play and read the music notes (that's the English name for it?), but I am not as fast as I used to be.
Still love the piano though!

Lovely story!.. And so familiar... I played piano when I was a schoolgirl. Then my younger brother, then my daughter... It was not new when my parents bought it, old but in a very good condition, made in Germany. It has a lock, and the key was like from a tail :)
Thank you!...

Oh my! So alike :) My piano also has a lock and a tiny key.
I actually don't know where they key is now... but we used to lock it.

We seems to lost the key too )) Mine is GEYER, and although no one plays it nowadays, we will not sell it 🤗

I am not selling mine neither! Hell no!

This looks incredible!

Thank you :)
