When I was young I desperately wanted to play the piano. The fact that we didn't own a piano seemed irrelevant to my mind – we knew people who did have one and surely they'd love to hear me practice. Wisely my mother determinedly said no, knowing full well I would likely never have stuck it out. And I wouldn't have - my fingers are not of the long, elegant variety desirable for reaching the keys.

and these are people playing real pianos for Play Me I'm Yours
above are two of the 41 pianos in Toronto
and below one from Stratford (Ont) and another from Glasgow
