An itch to play the piano? (piano player only)?

You ever need to play the piano when you've not played it for say 2 weeks or more?

Like when you are on a long vacation or studying for the finals in college ...

I'm just curious and want to know the answer from piano players

Thanks :)

or you guys just play it everyday no matter what is going on with your life lol.

    I don't think I can survive without playing piano or violin for a day. Most of the time while I am waiting or just got my hands free, I would always find myself practicing fingerings on table, my legs, a handle bar... I've watched this movie called The pianist, a wonderful movie to my taste, the true story of Wladyslaw Szpilman, can you imagine him as a pianist in order to survive the war had to be without piano for years? actually he had to sell his piano for the family living. I believe what keep us here is the passion of music, as long as you have it with you, you will always have music at your side.

    I have a hard time even walking past the piano without playing it. If I go on vacation I have to have a piano to play while I'm there.

    My first apartment was too small and not in a very good neighborhood, so I made the tough decision to leave my piano at my parents house while I was living there. Every week or so, I'd just really have to go play for an hour. The little keyboard in my apartment just simply couldn't do it for me. My parents loved it, because the piano always gave me an excuse to go and visit them!

  • Yeah, me too.

    I went on vacation for a week and I had the best time of my life but when I got to the hotel room I started thinking about all the music I had been playing and I wanted to go home. lol

    i get that feeling all the time! i also dance and i play the drums. so when i get in a mood or i just haven't played in a while ill go puts around with some chords. the main reason being my piano teacher retired about 3 years ago and i haven't been able to find a new one so i try to teach myself and sometimes i just get weird cravings to create a new song! same goes for my dancing and drumming! but honestly its more piano!

    Well for me whatever and whenever i will always play my piano. Not Playing our instrument for 2-3 days can make our skill drop after all

    yeah, well music can really change your mood, plus i practicing singing when i play so thats like two in one lol.

    Music is amazing and with the piano you can play ten notes at the same time!(altho it won't sound good if your hands can't stretch that far lol)

    If I don't play for a while I start absent mindedly playing on my desk or legs or book etc. I keep at it until someone asks WHAT ARE YOU DOING?
