“That’s not how it sounds on the CD!” Have you ever heard your piano student utter that famous line? You can just hear the disappointment oozing from every pore. They worked so hard to learn this piece, working sometimes for weeks just to be let down. I used to feel this way when I was a budding young pianist too. Luckily, as a budding young vocalist, I had already turned into the next at-home Paula Abdul with the invention of Karaoke. I could sing just like her and had the back-up band to prove it. But when it came to the piano, I was once again all alone – just me and my metronome.
Come on. Admit it. There’s no shame in it. Lot’s of people do it. In fact, I do it myself. Some mornings when I get up and step into the shower, I can’t help myself. I grab my shampoo bottle, turn up the radio and start belting out “Friday” or “You Can’t Touch This” – whatever comes to my (admittedly groggy) mind. Hi. My name is James and I’m a Shower Singer. …and so are you.
Lots of us get up every morning, sneak into the bathroom, crank the radio, and sing to our hearts’ content. …and, though we hide our efforts from the “discerning” ears of friends and family, we take some comfort in the fact that – though he doesn’t know it – we can hear our next door neighbor doing the very same thing.
Well, fellow Shower Singers, the future is here! Introducing the all new HP-305 digital pianos from Roland.
Designed to reproduce the natural, expressive feel of a grand piano (right down to the characteristic “click” feel and the old-school “ivory feel” keys), the new Roland HP305 is so authentic you’ll forget you’re playing a digital instrument! …but, though it has a breath-taking SuperNATURAL piano sound (based on the Steinway 9′ concert grand), 3-track recorder, metronome, and iconic front leg cabinet design, the HP-305’s real appeal is for – yes, you guessed it – the Shower Singers!
Connect your iPod, USB flash drive, or USB CD drive to this piano and you can take pre-recorded songs (even your favorite CDs!), cut out the vocals, and sing your favorite music with CD accompaniment! You can even change keys! You’re shower can’t do that!
So, fellow Shower Singers, it’s time for us to step out of the shower, dry ourselves off, (put some clothes on!), and sing ‘till our hearts’ content with the all-new HP-305 pianos from Roland.
Stop in for a demo and I might even sing for you – just don’t tell anyone!
