Review by: Abbie Johnson Taylor on Dec. 15, 2017 : (no rating)
Since I play the piano, I was fascinated by the author’s explanation of the inner workings of the instrument, as he related his various experiences. I liked his descriptions of Madison Square Garden and Lincoln Center where he was sent to tune pianos. As a registered music therapist, my favorite piece was “Song for Adrienne,” in which his playing of a familiar Christmas carol touched the heart of a young woman in a psychiatric hospital. I loved his quote at the end. “Life is like a piano. It has highs and lows, but when all is said and done, it is an instrument on which we all must play our tunes.”
