I Was Impressed

When I was a teen, I remember my mom driving my little sister to her piano lessons twice a week. I remember trying to study and how my sister's piano practicing made my studying difficult. ANNOYING I remember having to accompany my mom to my sister's piano recitals. BORING!! My sister bought a new house, and I went over to her new place to help her organize a few things. Sis has a baby grand piano in her living room and an upright piano in her family room. Sis played both pianos for me, and I was treated to the most beautiful music. ABSOLUTELY DELIGHTFUL! Sis's years of piano lessons really paid off, big time.

@Corbin5 You know, I grew up with both a piano and organ in my house, I remember playing both (nothing special, my sister taught me "Mary Had A Little Lamb" which I play on various instruments) and I don't remember being asked if I wanted lessons. Maybe because they noticed I couldn't sit still for very long.

The main thing I miss about a certain ex-wife is that she is a gifted pianist. She used to make cassette tapes of my favorite songs on the piano so I could listen to them while driving. I love a piano and wish I could play one.

Oh, I am sure the school was thrilled. I did notice a difference between the music coming from the upright piano and the baby grand. My brother and I were tested and we both have perfect pitch, but I cannot carry a tune and he can. My father, who studied voice in New York, informed that I could not carry a tune.

Your sister is blessed, she practiced those lessons diligently and it paid off! Myself, I took piano lessons but never bothered practicing. Eventually I was bored silly and quit piano lessons. Today I tinker away on a piano and it's a major job to play 'row, row, row your boat.' Practice makes perfect, I didn't do it.
