      pretty simple problem, I love playing piano but I am scared that it's too loud when I play it. Not sure if it is or not I just get this sort of fear/aversion which really bums me out. Are there any musicians out there with similar aversions and how'd you get over it?

      I'm a music teacher. The piano is my desk. I play all day. Doesn't bother me at all. I think you should try playing and see what happens.

      If the piano seems loud to me, it IS loud. And I put cotton in my ears, not all the way and that keeps spikes away.
