Piano Lesson Fun with “The Office” Theme Song

I just have to share this fun, spontaneous moment from a piano lesson yesterday. Check out this video:

My student surprised me by showing me that he had learned to play The Office theme song. I, in turn, surprised him by pulling out my melodica. :) I’ve been waiting a long time to be able to play that with someone!!

What is a melodica? It’s a cute little reed instrument that looks like a keyboard. I bought mine on Amazon (you can browse¬†here) a few years ago.¬†It is the instrument actually used for The Office theme song.

    That’s awesome! One of my favorite shows. I didn’t know what a melodica was, very cool.

    How fun! I also had a student show up last week playing this . :-) . Alas, I have no melodica…

    Keeping with the melodica theme – there there is a Cosplay Anime pianist (Lilly Pichu) that attended an a Cosplay event (Indy Cosplay) in July 2017 that played various themes to popular games as she followed those characters at the event. Perhaps the instrument will make a comeback (from wherever its been…). Shows how learning to play a keyboard can branch into different applications. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4o_fyuv7WT0
