My piano teacher offered me peace.

Enter the studio, sit on the bench softly. Take a moment to take a breath for the first time...in a week.

Regarding the clutter with interest...now Beethoven's bust is present. More M & M's added to a jar. A new hand towel draped across the sink in the tiny restroom.

Dudley, the Greatest of Danes, farts quietly under the grand and Mrs. Amov and I giggle.

Sometimes I sit and cry softly and she gives me the space. I don't know why I'm crying but it feels good and I am 15.

I am practicing many things that lead to masteries of all sorts and I don't even know it.

Breathing.
Relaxing.
Expressing.
Crying.
Giggling.
Appreciating.

The gift of space given to me

Week after week

month after month

hour after hour.

It created a space for me that I longed to return to and I have...the gift piano lessons gave me.

Beyond music.

This space we, you, are offering your students.

Golden.
