I decided to move our piano to upstairs this summer. I realized I am never in the basement and if I was serious about making my children be "serious" about playing than I needed to make a change. Now that it is in our family room the children are on it constantly and sometimes even Dad. Even though sometimes I cringe at the banging and annoying sounds that come from it, there is something about listening to Lucy(or anyone else) play a song she has worked really hard on and make beautiful music. We spend so much more time on it upstairs and I'm glad we made the change.
