50,000-59,999 SparkPoints to the nursing home to play piano...

Monday, April 01, 2013

I brought some "new" old music today, including It's Only a Paper Moon 1933, Mona Lisa 1934, I Don't Care if the Sun Don't Shine 1939, Paper Doll 1930 and You Light up My Life 1976.

I am waiting for some music I purchased on Ebay and am excited about playing something different next week.

My main criteria is no more than 4 flats or 3 sharps. I usually do well with intermediate level arrangements.

    Thanks MCGS62 for the heads up on Humoresque. My mother used to play that one and got her inspiration from a 75 RPM that was played by "Crazy" I recalled it was really fast!!! emoticon

    What a great thing to do!

I used to attend a once per month church service that my church did at a local nursing home and I was the pianist. Those who attended learned that I could play most hymns, but I'm with you on the accidentals.

I know the residents enjoyed those pieces!

I don't generally enjoy going to the doctor, but the building that my pcp's office is in is part of a local cancer center, and on the ground floor there is a grand piano that is usually being used. I would love to volunteer for that some time!

    You certainly do better than I but I haven't played the piano in years. Guess it would help if I still had one LOL! Have fun!
