My girls are always begging to play instruments. Abbie wants to play the violin, and Izza wants to play the cello. I have read and heard that its good to take piano first. I found a teacher and signed my girls up but.... I didn't have a piano. Craigs list is my new best friend!! I found this piano for a steal, already tuned, and well taken care of. I spent an afternoon with a friend painting it. I am so happy with how it turned out!! LOVE IT! Abbie is zipping through her piano book and Izza is learning songs and loves practicing! I am so proud of them!
