My Life and This Old Piano

Now I can see so much clearer how God had my life planned.They say hindsight is 20/20,and of course it is.This piano has been following me for 34 years.I was delivering a new Mason Hamlin six foot grand to this high scool and noticed this old piano on the stage floor.The legs were broke off and it just layed on the floor.The principal told me to take it with me if I wanted it.So I took it to my studio and set it up,repaired the legs and lyre.To my surprise I saw the whole insides(really what matters for sound quality,) was totally restored,pin block,pins,strings,hammer,and key action.I customized the action and hammer voicing next.

After performing a fine tuning on this baby I discovered a whole new world of inspiration.I have written most of my songs on this instrument.Being a studio piano over 200 gospel songs and years of recording sessions were performed on it also.Just last week we recorded some tracks for a movie score we are working on.God continues to use this piano for his glory.Last month we moved it to the church sanctuary where it will stay beside my Hammond B-3.It will now inspire hundreds more to worship.

Remember the old story about the old violin at the auction?God uses the foolishness of the world to confound the wise.No telling how many people have been blessed by this piano considering records and airplay an television and all.The old piano the school system thought was trash!
