Had my first lesson since getting the Estonia. My teach came to me so she could see the piano. It was great. She was suitably impressed. I played my Chopin Op. 28 E minor and A major PReludes for her as well as the Mendelssohn Venetian Boat Song, Op. 30 No. 6. I'm also working on the B minor, but it has a ways to go. The best part was that she says I am really starting to shape my phrases nicely. It was great to have her immediately identify four or five little trouble spots and show me how to fix them, "Bingo". Makes me realize all over again how valuable lessons are. I've been working for the last couple of months on my own, but there's only so far I can go until I need some help getting over the humps. Off to see "Ray".

Teachum,

Great Movie!! I'm not sure if I was totally jazzed about getting home to play my piano or depressed at my pitiful ability after seeing it.

Let us know what you think of the movie.

I am happy to see that you are putting the piano to excellent use! \:\) Can you tell a difference between your teacher piano and yours?

My teacher has a C1 and I much prefer mine. But of course I would never hurt her feelings.
