That's the one...


I'll figure it out eventually.
Until then you may want to keep a safe distance.

My sister is the same way!

There's not a lot that bothers me when I'm practicing since I live out in the country. However, I do have a problem with my digital piano. The higher notes on it sound...fine, they just annoy me. I suppose it's got something to do with the speakers in it. They just don't sound as good as the rest of the notes do. Ever since I learned to abuse the record feature, passing cars don't bother me when I'm trying to get a video now. smile

Wouter hit it on the nose... Squeeky pedals and keys or buzzing strings. That would really annoy me.

The dogs. They come into the room and start to wrestle when I start to play. I can pretty much ignore the noise, it's the continuous bumping into the bench that bugs me.

My washer, a Samsung, is so very polite. It dings only three times then plays a couple measures of what sounds like Mozart to announce it is finished with a load. It's kinda cute!


Collector of sheet music I can't play.

Unidentified noises bother me most. I can't help but attempt to identify every single noise I hear. This drives me nuts at night because EVERYTHING keeps me up. Every time I hear a noise, I must identify the source of it in my mind. I can't help it and don't try to do it. I just do.

This can be very frustrating when playing a piece and then hearing a snap or a crack or something.

Besides the unidentified noises, my Siamese cat yowels the "Uh-Oh" song all night long. Constantly. He's a yowler and screams "Uh-Oh" throughout the house all night long.

My Tinnitus doesn't bother me when I play but those weird whistling harmonics on my middle F and C are making me ready to go up on a university tower with a super soaker. Next time the tech is out we have to address those.

There is a sound that makes me lose concentration and even stop playing sometimes: the sirens of the ambulances or fire-trucks. There is a hospital in my town and I am used to listen this kind of sound several times a day, but not when I play the piano.

But the sound that makes me lose my temper is the car horn of people who use it to call someone in the neigbourhood instead of getting down the car and ringing the door bell. Actually, I think that it is not related with piano concentration, but with the fact that I hate the people that do this kind of things.

Yes. I have this problem too, particularly with half heard music ... I have to try and work out what the tune is and it keeps me awake.

Coffee machine that beeps five times to announce it is done. One beep is sufficient thank you very much! Thankfully my dryer has the ability to turn off the end of cycle buzzer as the old dryer would drive me mad with its repeated buzzing.
