It’s been a few weeks since I managed to sit down and blog. First there was the recital, then Thanksgiving, and a few days away with friends.
Let’s start with the recital. The students all did a great job. Even the ones that I worried about all week. Never let it be said that I don’t have faith that a kid can pull it together when it counts. All the practice paid off.
We were missing a few student but everyone played 2 or 3 pieces so it was a very nice recital.
When I arrived at Miller Piano to make sure everything was set up a little something caught my eye. The conversation with Steve went a little like this:
“Is that a Baldwin Artist Series Piano?”- me
“Why yes it is.”- him
“Let me go call my husband.”- me
ring ring- “Are you going to be upset if I buy a grand piano today?”- me
“Go for it.”- husband
to Steve “I’ll take it.”- me
Say hello to my new piano. It is a Baldwin Artist series built in 1975. The sound is glorious.
Happy Birthday to me is all I can say.
The students are enjoying it and already commenting on how much better prepared they will be for festivals and recitals since they will have a chance to practice on a grand. Lessons the first week with the piano were quite fun and I am having a wonderful time playing all my favorite Christmas tunes.
