Stories about people's Für Elise experiences
Great melody regardless of sound quality
This story was submitted by Carine Appleby and was added around February 2008.
My first encounter with Fur Élise was when I was about nine years old. My Mum had bought me a small jewelry box in the shape of a piano (it wasn't a very big jewelry box) that, when you opened the lid of the piano, played the tune of Fur Élise. I loved the sound, and even though the sound quality was atrocious I fell in love with the song. I first learned to play it when I found my Keyboard had it embedded into it. My keyboard teaches you songs by lighting up the key that you are to press and I learnt it by that.
