Employees Only - The Pianist

I hear he likes to close his sets with "I'm A Little Teapot" to impress the ladies.

Learning piano, I'm finding, is all about starting with the basics. I'm not even talking about simple songs - I mean you need to relearn how to push something with your fingers. That idea you might have had that it's just pushing buttons is laughable. I've spent the past three months trying to relearn how to move my fingers; and naturally that means I'm not playing any concertos any time soon.

My latest triumph is actually a piece called "Frisky Little Rabbits". I rock the house with it.
