Feelin Like the Music Man

One of the benefits of being a musician in a new home is the fact I have room to spare right now, and am looking to fill it in fun ways.

I primarily play the flute, but have always enjoyed other instruments.  One I've never fully mastered was the piano.

Don't get me wrong, I'm a virtuoso on the piano... as long as I can play one hand at a time.  Left hand, right hand, just not both.

Which is why I want one.

I don't have the room for a grand, but an upright piano would be perfect for the new house.  I'm not sure if I want to outright buy one or find a good piano rentals company, but I definitely want to get one in the house so I can practice more.

Besides, I still have this idea of wanting my kids to learn a musical instrument and follow in their dad's footsteps.  If you start with piano, it's easy to transition to other instruments... but not the other way around.

Flute, trumpet, oboe, the fingers go up and down.  They don't move.  Piano is different, and hard to learn when you're used to fingers staying in one place.

Are there any pianists out there?  Do you have any tips to impart?
