10 Signs You’re Absolutely In Love with Piano

Do you eat, sleep and dream piano? Are most of your waking hours spent tapping out the fingering of whatever song happens to be running through your mind? Are you already planning a special Valentine’s Day date with your beloved 88 keys? If any or all of these apply to you, congratulations! You’re an official Piano Lover.

First things first, as a Piano Lover, you’re in very good company if we do say so ourselves. Here at Musicnotes HQ, among the Band Geeks, Orch Dorks, Choir Nerds and Theatre Kids, there is always someone pounding away at one of our company keyboards (headphones ensure the rest of us can continue working). And at any given meeting, a quick room survey will produce at least half of us tapping out a song on the conference table.

Read on and find out if you, too, are able to proudly call yourself a Piano Lover!
