Spanish professional pianist Laia Martin is on trial in Girona after her family’s downstairs neighbor, Sonia Bosom, accused her of causing psychological harm.
Prosecutors are seeking a 20-month prison sentence for Laia Martin whose former neighbor is suing over alleged noise pollution.
They are also demanding that the 27-year-old be banned from professional piano playing for six months.
A verdict is expected within two weeks.

Laia Martin’s parents are also being sued and face a fine if found guilty.
Sonia Bosom alleges that the pianist – a conservatoire student at the time – practiced her piano for eight hours, five days a week from 2003-2007.
The alleged victim said she now has such a horror of pianos, she cannot stand even seeing them in films, reports say.
Sonia Bosom’s lawyer said she had endured “four years of suffering,” the Associated Press news agency reports.
In their defense, the Martin family said they had tried to soundproof the room, and that the practice had not been as constant as claimed.
The public prosecutor had initially sought a jail term of over seven years for Laia Martin.
In a video clip from 1985, Princes William and Harry bang enthusiastically on the keys of a piano as they take part in a photo-shoot at Kensington Palace, enjoying family life in perfect harmony.
Watched on by a glowing Princess Diana and a proud Prince Charles, three-year-old Prince William is encouraged to kiss his one-year-old sibling, Prince Harry.

William is at first reluctant, but then lands a cheeky smacker on Prince Harry’s head to cheers from onlookers before pulling quickly away.
At one point, their father, Prince Charles is seen playing peekaboo with a handkerchief to encourage his children to look in the right direction for the camera.

Just like any other youngsters, Princes William and Harry display an endearingly mischievous side – scampering away, hiding under tables and squirming out of their parents’ arms.
Prince Harry, who is just learning to walk, crawls over to photographer Tim Graham to get a closer look.
“Go on Harry, go get him!”, someone, possibly Diana, calls out from behind the video camera.
