Pianist Faces Jail Time for Practicing

Steinway piano

Surely we’ve all had noisy neighbors who cranked their music too loud.  We’ve all probably also had a neighbor that complained to the landlord or the police for every little noise made.

I’m not sure which is worse, but this story out of Madrid, Spain makes me glad I live next to cool people.
A 27 year-old pianist and her parents are being taken to court and face seven years jail time for purportedly foisting “psychological damage due to noise pollution” on the neighbor for practicing her piano at a noise level of roughly 30-40 decibels.

For reference, a normal conversation produces 55-60 decibels, with noise in a bar reaching 65-70 decibels and an airplane in flight producing 110-120 decibels.

Now, the real reason for this article: To tell the punchlines to my favorite piano jokes!

a.) “Elton John – great on the piano, sucked on the organ.”
b.) “You think I asked for a 12-inch pianist?!?!”
