When we moved 7 months ago, the piano came with us. Reagan would sit and "freestyle" for long periods of time, so we wanted to encourage her love of the piano by getting professional lessons. She started in September (just three months ago), and had her first recital last weekend. I was so proud I cried.
She was SO nervous! She kept telling me that she felt like her legs were shaking (they probably were!). She played a duet with her teacher and it was beautiful. She is so glad to have it behind her, but I'm so proud of what she has accomplished thus far. Her teacher says she has a natural gift with music. (I knew it!).
I love that she is learning something other than academics, and even more grateful that our lovely piano has someone to play it the way it was meant to be played.

Here is a link to the video of her very first recital song, "Jolly Old St. Nicholas."
