Musical Dreams - Josh's grand piano

Hello friends! A year ago, I won a scholarship competition and was loaned a brand new Yamaha C3X grand piano for twelve months. This was the first step towards the first major goal on the path to a career as a concert pianist: having your own instrument to practice at home.  The year is drawing to a close, and since I am getting married and moving to the countryside, I will have no way to practice my profession once I have to return the piano to Yamaha... unless I buy it. Since pianists are generally in the wrong profession to be able to afford their own instrument, I am in need of your support to realize this dream of mine and kickstart my career as a freelance musician!

The piano is a beautiful, new baby grand. I fell in love with it right from the start. I even recorded my new CD, "YOURS" on it right at home. Feel free to take a listen to some recordings on my YouTube channel!

This piano is a very responsible investment. It is a tool that I can use for a lifetime, and Yamaha is cutting me a great deal on it. I just need to pay them by May or I will be forced to return the piano. Your support means the world to me! With your donation, you will give me a headstart at chasing my dreams and support me at a crucial time - the fragile beginning of an artistic career.

Here is a video which I recorded at home on the piano:

Thank you so much for your support. You are fantastic!
