I'm having some new flooring put into a room not far from my office which is where my piano and my bird both live.

As soon as the flooring installer started working this morning the poor little bird was terrified by the noise, shivering and hiding behind his mirror. I could move him into the projection room but he doesn't really like it there since it's not his own spot, and I don't like to move him if I don't really have to. I thought I would see if I could just distract him instead.

I don't usually play the piano before lunch but I played some stuff with a beat and he immediately came out of hiding and started singing and be-bopping around, and I don't think he gave another thought to the activity and strange noises in the next room. grin

Just looking after my number one piano fan.

Your bird has got your back and vice versa!

How kind of you to soothe your bird, and with piano, no less!

Nice story. My teacup poodle always wants to sit on the piano bench when I play.

Aw. Glad you could help him feel better.
I used to move our bird cage into the nether regions of the house when the tuner was here because the birds were so "helpful" during tuning. Now, after a greeting, the cats get locked away, because one cat won't leave the poor fellow alone.

at my lesson today I was telling my teacher how unflappable I was having three small dogs, that might bark at any moment, around me. Do they like to listen to you play...... she asked ....I don't know said I but they don't complain.......


Problems with piano are 90% psychological, the other 10% is in your head.

My loyal dog is the only one who will remain in the room when I begin to play. She'll curl up right beside the piano and stay there until I'm done. Given the quality of my play she's probably deaf at those frequencies.
