The pros and cons of being a pianist

Pros:

- showing off in front of friends

- your hand is stretched out so that you can actually put your thumb and pinky in a straight line

- good pitch

- playing chords like no other instrument can

- being able to attempt to play play other instruments

- reading both bass and treble clef


Cons:

- when playing a really hard/intense passage and having to alternate between looking at your hands and the music and your glasses slide down the bridge of your nose so that you can’t see the score anymore

- short nails.

- learning all those Italian, French, German and the like words but not being able to use them in actual conversation

- moving a piano

- tuning a piano. you have to pay someone to come and wiggle the knobs in your piano

- playing concert etudes. my fingers

- other people thinking that faster is harder not realizing that expression and phrasing can be insanely hard as well

- theory exams = death.

- memorizing both left and right hand and fingerings

- being asked to play Fur Elise

- sight reading

- doing technique

- not being strong enough to do fortissimo (and more -ssimos) chords

tHERE’S WAY MORE CONS THAN PROS BUT I DONT CARE
