I am so jealous of anyone who can play a musical instrument well. I had approximately 3 piano lessons when I was younger and gave up because I couldn’t stand being told what to do. That, and my teacher was a college student with greasy hair and very bad breath! Lucky for me, I can play the piano by ear and I taught myself how to read music but I am nowhere near as proficient as I’d like to be.
I love to listen to classical music when I study, when I’m reading, when I’m getting ready for bed, when I’m brushing my teeth, when I’m drinking coffee… I listen to it a lot. My current playlist is starting to bore me though so I was so glad when a friend directed me to The Piano Guys, a duo who do amazing renditions of popular songs and classical pieces from David Guetta to Beethoven. I listened to one song and I now have both of their albums on my iTunes – totally hooked!
These guys have rekindled my love of the art of music. I think my big challenge for 2014 should be to pick up the piano again, or maybe the cello?!! There are people who understand music, and then there are these guys. Watch the video below to see what I mean! Then go check out the rest of their covers – Michael [Jackson] Meets Mozart and What Makes You Beautiful [Once Direction] are two of my favourites. Believe me, you won’t be disappointed!
