I've always been a big fan of the piano, not so much as an instrument to which I'd dedicate myself (I took years of lessons and am not even an average pianist), but as an instrument that I like to listen to other talented musicians play. Tom is an incredible piano player, to the point that if the kids or I mention we like a song - say, "Part of That World" from The Little Mermaid (Hallie), the Star Wars theme song (Will), or One Direction's "What Makes You Beautiful" (um, Hallie) - Tom will sit down at the piano and figure out the song so that we can all sing along together. I love that the piano allows us to fill our house with music.
I stumbled upon The Piano Guys while I was looking for another video for another post, and even though some of the videos - see the Star Wars parody below - are a little silly and it weirds me out when the cello player replicates himself, their music is beautiful.
Sit back, relax, and listen to this gorgeous music!
