Grace is learning to play the piano
A dimpled, smiling, little old woman came into the
Orkiu Brothers' piano department, and confided this
(Grace is her granddaughter)
nro glad to learn that (Jrnce is learning, for
less than three months ago she had boon in to tell us
what a horrid time she was having "chopping awn
at Chopin," as she put it. "Somehow I cannot become
interested," she pouted.
(Grace, too, has dimples)
Grandma went on to tell us what was happening.
"One of Grace's girl friends in. our neighborhood re
ceived as a birthday gift one of the Orkin Brothers
player-pianos," she said. "It renders music most, ex
quisitely. Old as I am I have tried it and I just can
not tell you the thrills 1 enjoyed when I found that
everything was subservient to my will, that 1 could put
my own personal expression into 'Annie Laurie,' for
example play it with all the dear old pauses and
sobby things we folks at home used to put in when we
wero all together, before
"But I am forgetting to I ell you about Grace. She 2-
fell right in love with the Orkin Brothers player-piano.
Was over to her friend louse half the time, playing
away. So wo hit upon the idea of providing her grand
mother with music rolls for the pieces she had been
trying to play on Jier own piano. She worked I hem all
out on her friend's Orkin Brothers player-piano, and
then she started in, at home, to play them herself, by
hand not quite as the teacher had direetetf, perhaps,
but with her own notions of expression such as she had
picked up from playing the Orkin Brothers player
piano. . "Well,. she is at it half the time now, either at her
home or at her friend's. And, deilr me! T almost for
got to tell you why I came in today. Grace sent me.
She wants to know what, it will cost to got an Orkin
Brothers player-piano, we to turn in the piano as part
payment. Vou see, she will still have a piano, as the
Orkin Brothers player-piano may be played either by
hand or with the rolls. I am sure the player feature
will help her to become !l von) performer by hand.
"We are just a little bit afraid," she added in an
undertone, "that Grace will bother our neighbors by
spending so much time there, practicing lmw to play
by hand, as she puts it."
Arrangements wore made in a few minutes.
Instead of merely a piano, Grace now has an Orkin
Brothers piano and an Orkin Brothers player-piano,
the two being combined in one instrument.
And maybe Grace isn't learning to play!
