Looking at my cap, it would appear that my big head isn't entirely figurative.

Playing the piano is learning to create, playfully and deeply seriously, our own music in the world.

I suspect one of them is either in the witness protection program or they are a member of MI6.

I see that the Bluthner isn't the only one with a belly.

Yes, Evgeni, that is one of the Bechsteins. I happen to think it is the best piano in the place, but others have other opinions.

How do I find that on YouTube? I want to send a link to a friend.

I think I have got a line on a professional jazz pianist for the party, also possibly a professional jazz singer.

Yes, I don't want to say any more until I have reached the necessary agreement.

The date of the climax of the party will be 11 July which is a Saturday. The party will start in the middle of the week before and go on into the following week.

On the evening of the 11th I have singer Marina Dragomiretzkaya and jazz pianist Samuel Eftimov booked to perform for us. Of course guests will be encouraged to play as well.

I am looking for suggestions on favourite pieces for them to play.

For guests as well as piano there are drums, guitar and double bass available. I am sure we can get something together.

The house sleeps 9 people without resorting to airbeds and the like, so accomodation is available on a first come first served basis.
