Pretty piano rooms


Dr-Lubov Laura De Valois

“My studio has 4 pianos: Two acoustic grand pianos: “Yamaha C” and “Hamburg Steinway and Son”, (built around 1880), and restored in New York by Steinway. I also have an electric Kawai, “Concert Performer” CP 175, that I use as the recording studio; and a Yamaha Clavinova CVP-109 for my students to practice with head phones.

“The room has a magic energy; when we play the concertos on two great grand pianos, I think music lights up the area with divine heavenly energy; angels are smiling.

My students start counting the “rainbows” that beam through the window’s rays of sunshine, and the whole room becomes a world where you can transport your mind and soul to the “magic planet” where everyone is happy without worry. There’s tranquility and peace prevailing.

“I also decorated my studio with my own art, (painting) and I influence my piano students to paint, and write stories about musical pieces they are practicing. Many are very creative in their artistic expression.”

“My piano absolutely glows every morning when the morning sun warms the room. It seems the piano is begging for a little play time on each new morning, and I just have to give in. I watch the sunrise from the bay windows and let my fingers dance across the keys in response to the promises of each new day! In the afternoons, when my students arrive, the beautiful rainbow prisms from a little heart-shaped crystal which hangs in my kitchen find their way onto the piano, the wall, or the students themselves. It’s so much fun to play a white piano with a bouncing prism joining in on the fun!”
