Last night I had my first piano lessons, which is a lie because it wasn’t my first piano lesson ever. I took lessons when I was very young but I quit. I wish I hadn’t. I wish my mom had forced me but I’m sure she couldn’t given my stubbornness.
I was so impressed with the piano teacher and even more impressed with the human brain. In the past (maybe) 12 years since I quit piano lessons as a child, music teachers have continued to research how the human brain learns music skills. The methods of teaching have gotten much more effective.
I’m very excited to be learning piano again. I bought a cheap keyboard last night so I can practice between sessions. I am not sure what learning the piano will do for me and my life but I’m not too concerned. I’m excited about it and I’m very thankful to have this opportunity. . . again.
