Piano recital today for my 3 kids. Lots and lots of hours of practice went into it. We have an amazing teacher, you would have been floored by the kids that played today. One after the next, all 15 or so of her students, were amazing. It’s incredible how a teacher can inspire so many kids to strive for excellence and enjoy the process.
I had my daughter pose for this pic after the recital. I want to paint it. She also does ballet and I can see how her dance is starting to influence her music. She dances along with her songs as she plays.
My boys did great too. They both had very long hard concertos. I think Sammy’s was about 20-30 pages long (but it’s a concerto, so half the piece is written for a second piano).
