  1. 7/5/10—Day 6, 4th piano (around 3:20 p.m.) Wish Emily could play in the shade. It must be over 100 degrees then but Emily wanted to get to as many pianos as she could in the last day of this fun project. Here we met a family doing their piano tour, too. The mom played and she told us she finished her Suzuki Piano curriculum in Japan when she was young.
  2. Me and my husband were shocked when we saw that piano.
    we were just having a romantic walk in the park during this hot summer and suddendly we saw this piece of music. We started playing and it was so beautiful everything... the melody, the night, the stars, the lake..
    Thank you so much for this project.. we have to share music and let people try to play at list once a life...
  3. A hispanic man on the piano. He seemed completely engaged.
  4. "Play Me, I'm Yours" was a dream come true for me: playing piano on the streets of New York in just about every location imaginable. I can't thank Luke Jerram, sing for hope, and all the volunteers enough for pulling off this special event. It was amazing to see so many pianists come out and play, and especially touching to hear so many gifted and talented children step up to what is a very challenging instrument (and play it in public on one of the world's biggest stages).

    In the beginning, I set out to play all five boroughs, but soon realized my day job wouldn't easily accommodate all the travel and logistics involved. So I reset my sights instead on playing every available Manhattan piano (and a few in Brooklyn and Queens). By the end of two weeks I had achieved my goal.

    My pieces are all improvisations, so playing on the streets of New York allowed me to share my spontaneous, energetic music with a city whose rhythms and tones have informed and influenced my music for years. The chance to publicly give back to a city whose people, music, and spirit have brought me joy for decades was the opportunity of a lifetime. Thanks for watching and listening.

    From the heart,

    Sandy Santra
