So Many Keys, So Few Fingers

The kids had their first piano recital on Friday.  I have been asking them for months to play in the recital and they have both continually rejected the idea.  Once the creme puffs and cookies came out, their tunes quickly changed and suddenly, they were both excited to show off their mad piano skills.

Annie decided on, Fuzzy Wuzzy, without hesitation.

At this point, Hudson was trying to find a piano song he had memorized he could play.  Frustration set in when I told him Ode to Joy, Morning and The Bridal Chorus were off limits since other students were already playing them.  He finally settled on the first piece he ever learned…a little duet he and I play often.  They both did a great job and were even willing to dress the part for the occasion.  I decided on playing Toccata and Fugue in D minor this year.  It’s not a difficult piece, but it is so fun to play and easily recognizable.  It’s actually the only song that beckons me on occasion to learn the organ.  All my other students did a fabulous job and I always love hearing them play.  I’m so proud of them.  It takes a lot of dedication, courage and practice to perform and they all did it without hesitation.

    I would love to hear you play again. After all, it’s only been like 18 years since I last did… ;). You truly are amazing (I have to agree with the above comment — and I wasn’t even there!). From keeping up with your blog, I am constantly amazed at all you accomplish! And like I said before, I’d totally take lessons from you (assuming you give them to old fogeys like myself ;)) if I lived closer!
