Bev,

This is cracking me up!

I wonder if he can turn the instrument on by himself?

I can't imagine living any where near him. I wouldn't survive it.

Handsome animal.

Hey Betty, what a letdown, I was expecting a long post about fingerings and scales.

No,no, just kidding, a friendly poke!

Next up, a post by Keyboardklutz, criticizing Fido's posture!

He, He, He. I'm enjoying reading the postings.

The dog certainly adds some element of laughter here.

And, we know we need that more often than we get!

I actually came back to get the link to share with others.

Great video Bev! Here's one of my students.



I told him he could just play what he felt and he obliged!!

Was that by John Cage?

Great effort, and from memory too!

I would like to hear his Bach. grin

I think that Gyro will notice that eweiss' student has been had and has wasted his money on a "real piano" and plays like his (her?) teacher told him.

Whereas Bev's student shows an artistic bent: he has a digital, and has found the fingering that corresponds to his own special morphology.

LOL, eweiss! Thanks for posting it..I can't believe how high the dog howled. What pitch is that?
I agree with Morodiene that the dog was trying to sing in tune. How cute!!

I have a dog and she is uninterested in the piano.. I've been trying to teach her to howl/sing, but I don't think she really is able to at this point. Darn.. what a shame..

My OP was about the topic of having a dog sing and play the keyboards, but here are 2 videos that crack me up, because the dogs are howling in response to musical stimuli!!

enjoy..

I hope this isn't too OT.
