What is it about Mormons and pianos?

With only very, very rare exceptions, the only homes i’ve ever been in that have pianos (a) have at least some of the same occupants as were there in the 1950s, and/or (b) have Mormons in the household.

I, for one, find this weird. (Of course, i have to admit to not really liking the way pianos sound, even when they’re perfectly in tune, which is rare for an in-home piano.)

I know this blog doesn’t have a wide readership, but surely those of you who do read have some sort of collective wisdom on this one.

I've known quite a lot of people who live in houses much younger than the 1950s and not LDS who have pianos. It's a pretty common thing around here.

I've known professional pianists (who are not LDS) who don't even have a real upright in their home. Only electronic.
