Today was my first piano lesson! I arrived 20 minutes early because I wasn’t certain I knew where I was going. The receptionists at the conservatory giggled at my incredibly early arrival!
There are three other people in my class– quite an eclectic mix, actually. There is an elderly married couple that bicker hilariously, and a mom that seems to enjoy traveling to Nunavut with her family. And of course, the history and beauty of the College Ave Campus just add more depth to the interesting environment of our lesson and class.
I held my own in the lesson, and needed to ask clarification only a few times. I learned what a semi-tone, whole-tone, the clefs, and the notes that follow the word F-A-C-E on the treble clef are, as well as note values. I am incredibly eager to go to the music room to practice so that I am prepared for next week’s lesson!
There is talk of a recital at the end of the semester! How exciting!
Any advice for a new music learner?!
