Piano Recital

Bob had a piano recital this weekend. I am so thankful that we have a piano in the house here and that we were able to find a piano teacher. It is an extra blessing that the teacher comes to the house.

Bob has been taking lessons for about 4 years now. He has had three different teachers and while that is quite a bit of changes in teachers I think each one has done something different to encourage and teach him. We miss Olga but our teacher here has been encouraging and helping Bob along.

The current teacher is also will to give Miss K a short lesson at the end of Bob's. She is learning to play Hot Cross Buns, Peter, Peter Pumpkin Eater, and Meow Meow. We are seeing improvement and she is learning to use her finger independently.

Piano and music lessons are important to us. This article explained reasons that I agree with. I also know that music has helped the children to relax.

One thing that was interesting at the recital this evening was there were two guys that I would guess to be in their 20's that are taking lessons from this teacher and both performed. I was impressed that they were continuing to put the time into lessons and practice.

  1. This is such a blessing, I agree. Our ten year old son started playing a small lap keyboard my father bought three years ago. We couldn't afford lessons, but I bought him a beginner's piano book, and then the church my husband works for donated an old piano. Paul continues to teach himself using Internet music he prints out, and increasingly more difficult piano books. I am blessed by his playing, even though the piano needs a tuning. Our hope is that he will relax through this and bless others at holidays and family parties with his knowledge and skill. Right now he is practicing Christmas music. Twice I have had people over for him to play for, and once our local library had a recital for kids of all ages.

    Tell Bob we said congratulations! Would he be interested in having a pen pal, I wonder?

  2. Can you talk my hubby into it? :) I grew up with piano lessons and I think it was good for me even though I was terrible at practicing! :)

    I like Bob's name. :)
