Arcare North Lakes: Alex’s passion for piano

At 92 years old, Alexander at Arcare North Lakes still enjoys playing his piano to this very day.

Lifestyle Coordinator Maree had a lovely chat with him the other day and after their conversation, he proceeded to play some beautiful tunes for her.

He shared with her that his father had taught him to play the piano and the organ from a very young age.

Alex’s father was a music teacher who played in the local Roman Catholic chapel each year, as well as performing at Christmas concerts.

It is clear to see that musical talent runs in the family!

Alex himself enjoys listening to Scottish music and classical music like the Waltz.

When he is feeling down, he simply puts his favourite music on and feels better soon.

Alex has many fond memories of listening to music during his childhood with his family.
