My House

This is where I live. A true "bachelor pad." The weight-lifting bench belongs to my roommate/landlord. In fact, that's his leg in the doorway.

The piano is mine. It's a Baldwin. Kremlin model. My great-grandmother played it around the late 1800s or early 1900s in California. That piano has been to Ohio and Indiana, and now is back in the West.

Ninety percent of the music played on that keyboard is Johann Sebastian Bach.

We have a piano too...it was my Mom's and is a Kimball... I don't like to admit it, but ninety percent of the music played on ours is probably Chopsticks =)
Bach uses a veritable "Chopsticks" motif in one of his Keyboard Concertos. Murray Perahia plays it on the piano. Amazing piece!
