I've always been one to escape an especially hard, taxing, or bad day with music.
Last Friday, I decided to try out a Settlement piano as my agent for relief. As it was the last day of a particularly tiring week, I needed my music fix desperately. I wanted to create sound, to release my imagination.
So, I perched behind the beautiful grand piano that sits in Presser Hall at the Mary Louise Curtis branch of Settlement Music School. The hall was pleasantly empty with rows of chairs set up throughout the space, as if a crowd of people would appear any minute.
I stretched my arms out in front of me and placed my fingertips in ready position on the whites of the keyboard. The first chord sounded and my transportation to another mental realm was complete.
Did you know: Settlement owns 154 pianos across all branches? Pretty incredible, huh?
