It is a truth universally acknowledged that Jane Austen enjoyed music. She played the piano every day, compiled her own albums of sheet music, and danced when others played. And music plays an important role in her novels and movie adaptations of her books.
Jane Austen had piano lessons until she was 21, studying with George Chard - an organist from Winchester Cathedral (pictured). She was a keen player and practiced daily before breakfast so as not to interrupt the daily routines of her family.
