Raiha Posted June 15, 2008 Share Posted June 15, 2008 [COLOR="DarkOrchid"][FONT="Times New Roman"]I'd like to think that my childhood piano playing wasn't detrimental to the mental health of others. After the initial two years of hell I finally began to play tunes recognizable by others and actually enjoyed. But now I'm 22 and I'm not forced to practice by my overbearing parents. I can play whenever I want and whatever I want and I tend to have a pretty good time doing it too. Besides, they now have my 10 year old brother to dragoon into playing but god help us, it's not the piano. It's the trumpet. And while I know he's a beginner, as in one year of experience only, listening to him play is like listening to AND watching a train slowly crash into a retaining wall. For half an hour every other day my eardrums are assailed by sounds that I would like to consider as music, but the stuff makes the angels as well as me weep. And not with joy. I'm considering finding some sound canceling headphones. Mildly expensive, but still completely worth it. Do you have siblings that play instruments that drive you insane? Did you ever have to play music that was a horrible experience for all within hearing range? You poor things.[/FONT][/COLOR] Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
