The Amazing Secret of the Player Piano…
Being a teenager in 1968 comes with its own set of challenges, but Debra is focused and knows what she wants: the most important thing in her life is music, and if she works hard enough, one day she will inherit her grandfather’s wonderful baby grand piano. Money is tight for Debra’s family, and sometimes she feels that she isn’t good enough compared to her more affluent peers. One day when she is at her grandfather’s house, watering the lawn to earn some pocket money, she discovers that his old player piano has an astonishing secret. She triggers a mechanism that causes Middle C and his magic metronome to appear, and she starts an adventure she could never have imagined, traveling through time to a music conservatory where she and five other special kids have been chosen for individual instruction. If they do well, they will be rewarded with the opportunity to travel further and to meet composers and music icons of the past. Debra is thrilled by her travels, but better still, she finds her first love, and their special bond blossoms as they share their love of music. Will Debra hold her own at the conservatory and bring her new love back to the real world? Secrets of the Old Music Room is a charming romance for readers of all ages, crafted to reinforce positive self-esteem in teenage girls with the message that being authentic brings happiness and success.
