Me playing the piano

Here’s a video of me playing the piano.

Some people who haven’t seen me play the piano in a while (if ever) wanted me to put up a video of me playing the piano.

This video shows me making up some music off the top of my head one day as I wait for my piano students. I know that the video and audio quality aren’t the best. The only camera I have is a still digital camera that does low quality video and audio. I had to stack several books up in order to get the height to make a few of the angles work. As I said, the music is just something I made up on the spot so I don’t expect it to win a grammy, but it isn’t bad. (My CD’s and mp3 files at the website are better).

The piano is a Kawai 5’2″ small grand, purchased in 2008. The location is the Church of the Mediator, Micanopy, FL. It is an historic building built around 1875. The acoustics are very live with a nearly 5 second reverberation rate, even though the building is only about 50′ x 25′. (I think? those are the outside dimensions).
