    I’m exhausted today too. Painting woodwork, valentine crafts and piano tuning, oh my!

        No, but I rescued a piano that could not stay in tune, so this was it’s final chance to be fixed, and it was not possible. I then had to figure out what to do next, and it was an emotionally exhausting process.

            Different piano. Unfortunately. The other just had 80 years of neglect. Too many insolvable issues. Even the wood was shot. We got a Yamaha this time.

            Why do you know so much about pianos? Are you a pianist?

            It belonged to a good friend who is 92, but she didn’t play nor did her kids, and they had done nothing with it in 40 years… too many years of neglect. My piano tuner and I tried, 5 different occasions, hours of work. It couldn’t even accompany my daughter to her first piece in the first violin suzuki book. The keys just didn’t work well enough. It was going right back out of tune. It couldn’t be tuned to the modern frequencies. Deep sigh of regret.

          • Oh well, you tried. Being in tune is the thing that counts most with learning to recognize what “in tune” concert means 🙂 You have lucky kids to have so many opportunities made available for them … and your obvious pleasure in doing 🙂 not only for, but with them.

            Thank you for taking the time to reply. I appreciate it. My first husband, and my older boys can tune anything with their perfect pitch, as long as it is actually possible. 🙂

            My son’s violin teacher believes he has perfect pitch, and my other son and daughter, time will tell. It just all adds up: so much for this instrument, so much for that. It never stops. New shoulder rest. Broke a string. I want to learn drums. I need a cymbal. Sigh. I do have the good fortune to hear live music well-played almost every day. I’m lucky. Just broke. LOL
