learning . . .

Sarah has surpassed me in piano, which is wonderful.

I love to hear her play

and

now she can help me learn new pieces.

Songs we’re working on

  • Sonatina in G Major op. 36, no. 5 ~ by Muzio Clementi
  •  Largo ~ by G. F. Handel
  • and my favourite Waltz in A Flat ~ by Johannes Brahms

It’s a complicated piece for me but I enjoy the learning process.

I’m not the only one who loves to hear Sarah play …

 Sophie  – in her favourite listening spot.

  1. This is a great post! I have played since age 4, and I was involved in many performances and competitions. I had to take a step away from my "friend" in college to rethink music and my life. I now am able to play for enjoyment, release emotion and just create and worship in a beautiful way. I’m so glad you are learning and enjoying it…along with Sarah. What a lovely experience that must be!

I visited a blog the other day and thier piano was all covered up, I haven’t quite gone that far yet.Ah, such beautiful music, I’d love to come and have a cup of tea and listen too. Lucky dog. . .

  3. My children both play piano as well and are surpassing me! Funny that our dog Sandy also seems to like listening to then play. She’s the perfect audience who never hears mistakes! ๐Ÿ™‚ Good for you for pushing yourself to continue advancing. I’ve never liked performing, but find it most enjoyable just playing for myself.

  4. My Ben, 9, started piano lessons this Fall for the first time. I was overjoyed that he wanted to learn because I took piano for many years as a child and loved to play. It is such a joy to hear him play, even when he fumbles – nothing like the piano! Enjoy.Tanya
