Piano Recital

Here I am in all my piano playing glory... or lack thereof. I practiced my little heart out, but I still made lots of mistakes, BUT the point is that I know how to play with my left hand and my right hand in the C position. I'm way excited for myself, but I don't know how much more progress I'll make on my own. We'll see. I think I'll stick with the C position for a bit longer before I try to learn more. It's harder to teach myself than I expected.

Enjoy, and thanks for coming by to watch. If you watched, please leave a comment, even if you have nothing to say, just say hi, I want to get a feel for who actually reads this blog of mine.

Your piano playing is beautiful!! I loved watching you play! Thanks for sharing your talents! You are a good example of not hiding your talents and really making an effort to learn new things. I loved your blues song too!

Brad is such an awesome hubby to suprise you with the painted piano!! What an awesome gift!
I loved your recital!! You didn't even seem nervous!

Hebbie said...

Very much proud of you. But you should take a look at your bottom when you are sitting on the piano...your dress has a design that makes it look like your butt crack is emphasised. Just thought it was funny! But your playing was marvelous. Congratualtions

I seem to remember Brad teaching himself how to play piano. He could play like two hymns and was called as the priesthood pianist. Of course I was then called to conduct and boy was that funny!

Brandon said...

That was great, almost as good as when Brad plays Praise to the Man with the Rocky intro.

AMAZING or wait should I say glorious?!?! Great job and Brad did an awesome job refinishing the piano. Keep practicing and if we ever live close to each other again you can teach me!!

Katie said...

I have to admit that I read your blog quite a bit. I'm a fan. I told Brad when he was visiting Ezra that I stalk you guys via your blog. Just so you know :) Great job on the piano recital, I've been looking forward to it. I needed some inspiration to practice more. All the best to your little family!

HI! I loved the recital, it is the first piano recital I have ever attended and I am inspired now. You did so well. Playing with two hands is sooo hard. I'm really impressed. Keep up the good work!
