     What has five parts and can be described as good-looking, talented, intelligent, young, and extremely musical? The 5 Browns, of course! The 5 Browns truly have it all: looks, talent, charisma, and more. When Teen Ink contacted me about doing this interview, I could barely suppress my excitement. Meeting The 5 Browns was all I could think about. I couldn't believe I was actually going to interview this incredible family. That's right, they are brothers and sisters who play the piano together professionally. Having five members of the same family who play the piano extremely well is not only rare but quite spectacular. Since music is also very close to my heart, I couldn't wait to meet them!

When the day for the interview finally came, I was beyond psyched. I arrived at one of New York's most beautiful piano stores, Steinway Hall, located near the famous Carnegie Hall in the middle of New York City where so many world-renowned artists have performed. As soon as I entered the building, I was ushered into one of the lovely rooms upstairs to await the arrival of The 5 Browns.

Along the way I noticed the corridors were decorated with portraits of famous musicians, chandeliers overhead, and hundreds of pianos in various rooms. Walking through the corridors in Steinway Hall was an experience in itself.

Finally meeting The 5 Browns left me in total awe. As soon as they entered the room, I was struck by their warmth and friendliness. I immediately felt as though I had known them my entire life. They truly created a pleasant atmosphere that made the interview so enjoyable.

At the end of the interview, I had the chance to play the piano for them. It was an incredible experience. I felt really comfortable and was eager to hear their comments and advice.

Then Gregory Brown performed one of Chopin's most difficult etudes. Even though the piece was very fast, he played it naturally and very beautifully. It truly was an inspirational moment in my life. I only wish I could have heard all of them play!

I believe meeting The 5 Browns was one of the best days of my life. I got to meet five incredible musicians and talk to them as though they were my closest friends. Hopefully I will get to meet them again someday soon so that we can spend more time discussing our favorite topic, music!
