it was great... shouldn't have been nervous.. It doesn't bother me to play badly... funny how all the flaws are so glaringly obvious when someone is listening.

well... he came in, didn't even comment on how nice or clean and shiny my house looked. 1 minute later he plopped this sheet on the music desk with intimations or directions of how to play scales in 3rds, in the key of C.. Not the notes ... just directions.. so I tried that a few times and learned some hand, elbow, shoulder, finger integrated techiniques.

then I played the the prelude in D major from WTC I pretty badly - several times.. got quite a few different ways to approach and practice. Made sure all the notes were right.. He played the fugue and it was GORGEOUS.. I can't wait to start that..... and that was about it.

Now I will look forward to my next in 2 weeks. (I have my little job practicing to keep up on)..

very happy I am ... he looked pretty comfortable.

Feel free to ignore if this is none of my business, but how much does he charge? How long are your lessons?

Great news, apple!

I'm also in love with my new piano teacher (in a huntin' and fishin' kind of way, of course!). It's amazing what a good teacher can discover and bring out, pointing out both strengths and weaknesses.

You get what you pay for. My teacher is $10 more per lesson than my previous one, but I'll go without something to make up the difference.

Someone on the forums said once, "taking piano lessons is one of the great joys in life." That has really stuck with me. Wish I could remember who said it.

had my 2nd lesson.. I'll think I'll keep him.. I'm sure many would give a couple teeth to have him stay and practice afterwards. so very cool.
