As an only child (and grandchild on both sides), I grew up with a different perspective on who - or what - was family. The story explores my deeply personal relationship with my baby grand piano. As I grappled with change, the music put a voice to what I could not say, but it also became a crutch. The piece tracks my journey of learning how to truly speak on my own, while hoping not to abandon one of my closest relationships forever.
Yeah, yeah, it's a little serious. But stuff gets real every once in a while, right?
