You could not describe me as musical in any way; I can't play an instrument or hold a tune, at school I was told to mime in the House Group during the annual music competition. Mind you there was a time when at children's parties I have had to join in 'The Music Man'.
I don't know what the couple at the piano in our prompt were playing/singing but I doubt it included 'pia-pia-piano'. However it did inspire me to find a 19th century piano player.

The young man is concentrating hard and is playing without music, unlike our prompt, but he does have some photos on the top of his piano.
There are music and flowers in my second photo of an American singer and piano player who died in 1939.

Apparently Lois perfected her singing and piano playing in her church choir.
This week's prompt is made for our own music man, Sepian Mike Brubaker at temposenzatempo. You will find him and others at Sepia-Saturday-214,
