That estonia looks very very nice! How long is it? 6' something? MaryAnna, your practice area looks very very nice! I love the old world feel mixed with modern features!

The Estonia 190 is 6'3" although some manufacturers list 190cm as 6'4".

Yes, indeed, that's my cousin on his first visit. I was not the best accompanist, so when he came last September, we just sight-read duets. He's a tolerant man.

Thanks, Brandon! I had a lot of fun decorating that room.

When I moved in, I got the dealership that sold me the piano to move it for me. They don't move one that size every day (it's not that big a town), so the dealer came himself to supervise. You can't really see it in the picture, but the room is pretty big. The piano is at the corner of an L-shaped room that's good-sized in both directions.

I'd had it painted, so it was already pink, and it just looked big and *really* pink without any furniture in there. The dealer came in, took one look and said, "Hey! You could get a nine-footer in here!"

Nice try, buddy...

This is my big piano (in not such a big room) - a Brodmann 187.


With a picture of the only member of our family of five who doesn't yet play the piano:



The acoustics of the room mean that playing with the lid fully open is a fine, if fairly loud, experience for the pianist, but rather blows away anyone else in the room. I might need to adjust, but the natural light from the windows and a skylight above make this a pleasant place to play.

Competing with the television isn't too much of an issue. It is a good reason to have the TV off, and we have a digital in another room for silent practice.

I love the adjustable piano seat. I've never seen one before, let alone one that goes that high.

You certainly have one beautiful Brodmann! I had the opportunity to play a small Brodmann grand. It was a fantastic piano!

I enjoyed this thread so much, and I hope we'll see some more practice spaces... Pianos only come to life when they're embedded in a context. Even though we may predict or know what a Kawai RX-3 looks like (or any other piano for that matter), the piano receives its special value from where it is placed and by what it is surrounded (and by whom it is played, of course)... Let's see some more spaces! (I also like to look at the spaces of others in hope of improving my own space)
