Yes, its pretty off topic, yes there are excessive capital letters in the title but I”m looking for help – does anyone, anywhere, have or know something with a piano who would be willing to part company with it? Someone who has been using the piano simply to prop up flowers, a few pictures, let the cat walk over it – whatever. If its been gathering dust in the sitting room or you’ve gotten out of playing one I want to know.

Why – easy, I want to buy it! Or if you’re giving it away then all the better. If its within reasonable travel distance from Kilkenny I can arrange to collect it. I’m not looking to go mad pricewise though, I’ve seen upright pianos knocking around eBay up to 200 euro so thats my limit right there.

I fell in love with the piano again (I played for a while YEARS ago) and its a promise to myself (not a New Years Resolution – a promise) for 2007 to start playing piano again so if you know of anyone at all who has a piano they’re looking to offload then please let me know. If it needs tuning thats not too bad, I don’t mind in tuning it myself (not that I’m a qualified piano tuner but I think I would do a good job) so long as the thing isn’t beyond playing!

Drop me an email, leave a comment or contact me through the blog.

    Good for you. I wish you luck, first in getting a piano, and secondly in taking it up again. I used to play years ago – but I didn’t like it much then, I was young. Now all I can play is the intro to Beethoven’s Für Elise. I have promised myself to learn again soon.
