5 Minute Collage
5 x 7"
After many years with no piano in the house we bought a simple upright for our daughter when she was in high school and wanted to learn to play. One day after everyone had left me alone I sat down at the piano to see if I could still play. Reading the notes for the right hand didn't give me any problems except I was incredibly slow, but the bass! I could not read the bass notes. I had no idea where to put my left hand. I was clueless. Well, Mom, thanks for 7 years of piano lessons that I never wanted in the first place.
No, I didn't ask my daughter to show me, but when she'd had enough of the piano I didn't force her to stick with it. Our family had wasted enough money on lessons for a girl who learned to hate the piano because she was forced to play it and I wasn't about to repeat that mistake.
