Today I was remembering piano lessons. When I was a kid, I really wanted to play the flute but we did not own a flute…. only a piano. Sooo…enter Claudine Renfro, my piano teacher. Needless to say, Claudine did not last long. ( I did like her stickers)
Then, enter Mrs. Dewitt. She scared me! Each week she would make me play and I had to find ways of pretending that I had practiced for hours.
One method was the sway. I would try to play the notes and sway from side to side with the tune. I don’t think she minded too much but when she made me play a duet with my younger sister, I would always bump into her. The best day at Mrs. Dewitts house was the day we had a tornado warning I got to leave early!
In the end, the lessons ended. You know that you were not meant to do a thing when you are completely THRILLED beyond measure the day you don’t have to do it ever again in your whole life!!!
