Piano Lessons – Music, Love and True Adventures – with a musical clef instead of an and sign – by Noah Adams is erudite, civilized, thoughtful and most of all fun. Memoir is probably the correct category.
Noah ranges widely, tying many categories together. He suddenly, one day at 51, decided he had to have a piano! The story chapters are months detailing his adventures with the piano, many different kinds of lessons, his relationship with his wife, his work at National Public Radio, his entire life.
Having decided that 60 was my time to buy a piano and take lessons, I decided this book was a must have. And it was just a treat to read and muse about. Thanks, Noah!
