Thanks guys and girls for the encouragement. I think it needs some color on the walls and if you can be here in person, the wallpaper is quite blah.

Shirokuro, I used to play classical guitar but stopped because of focal dystonia. I was officially diagnosed early Feb. I'm still active in the classical guitar community and sit on a board which focuses almost entirely on bringing classical guitar to Minnesota.

The little piano is Garrett's, who is only 20 months old. He's given up on that and wants to play the big piano now. wink

Nice pianos and piano spaces everyone! And, MAN! Some of your places belong in magazines!

Doug-- laugh I like your picture!

miseenplace--I like your physical space itself quite a bit, but if you find it uninspiring, perhaps you are right about a change in wall color...?

Okay, so I am finally getting around to posting a picture of me as well at the piano (as opposed to just the piano). So, here it is... A picture of me at my piano....

Yup! May 2, 2003. I thought about posting one of me w/ my husband, but figured he might not be too keen on that... So, it's just me... with my back turned, of course! laugh

When I see all these beautiful grand pianos in their likewise beautiful surroundings, I hate to show my little digital piano put into the only available corner of my room. I have a great location for a 6' grand, but I'm not likely to get the necessary approval for either the grand piano or the location very soon.

Absolutely! My brother went to school with R.E. Lee V -- are you from that family? I was more outspoken when I was younger, and when my brother introduced me to Bob Lee I brazenly said to him "that's a really tough name to live up to." whome

Yes, but I'm not exactly sure where. My mother said great grandfather, but I've never been able to find my garndmother's name in any of his biographies with geneologies. I have one living cousin from the family and she doesn't know either. Neither of us have ever gone to great lengths to pursue it. I lived with my grandmother for a year when I was about 10 or 11 but never questioned it. I have my grandmother's bible on my desk engraved with her name, dated March 30, 1890.
Do you still have family in MA now?

Truth be told, while I'm actually practicing, that looks quite like my own area. I end up with books and my own various custom-printed music-desk-wide-sheets sets all over the floor, the music desk and surrounding chairs. Sometimes they spill over onto the high or long strings and I don't notice until I use those keys. I'm always wondering, "Where the whome

This shows you've been in the North a while. Most Virginians I've met would spare no expense to pursue that link.

about the messy piano, I usually move one of the piles of books on the bench to the floor. And I do have vast quantities of sheetmusic, which gets a little interesting. hehe whome . I'm trying to change my ways....

I always try to keep a minimum of stuff on the top of my piano, loose sheets of the pieces I'm working on and the Czerny and Hanon books, and a metronome and clock and that's it. I keep all my billions and billions of books and other piano related things (cleaning stuff etc) on shelves throughout the house (those books keep multiplying when I'm not looking)

I read comewhere once that you're not really supposed to have too much on the top of an upright, especially heavy music books, and for some reason that suggestion stuck with me. Mr ShiroKuro appreciates it at least because it forces me to cut down on clutter.

Hi Kuan (@miseenplace)

You are right, the design of my speakers is (pseudo-) coaxial. smile
If you are interested in a detailed description of these „Studio Reference Monitor Loudspeakers“, please download the pdf of the model RL906 made by Musikelectronic Geithain (MEG) .
MEG is well known as a loudspeaker manufacturer for german broadcasting companies.

Well finally got around to uploading some new pics and this one is for Bob Muir because he made some great recommendations on piano positioning that I finally followed so now I face out into the room and even can look out the window while I practice. Maybe that's not such a good thing now that I think of it wink
We've also been doing some more painting in that room, so here is a pic after repositioning the piano but before new paint:

After painting:

A couple more:

I wasn't too sure about the color but now that it's done I really like it. Oh was I supposed to be included in these sorry but that'll take another set of pics and the way I procrastinate...

Cathy,
That's an elegant practice area! Your piano looks great against the new color. But what really caught my eye was your music chest. Do you where I might find one like it?

Thanks all;
Michael - Yes that's the JP185 in Bubinga; I really like yours too with rosewood grain.

cg - I looked online for a cabinet and just really couldn't find one I felt good about so one of my friends (we worked together until he retired to be a furniture/cabinet maker) built that one for me.

Apple - Thank you so much that means a lot coming from you since I really admire your artistic way with color.
