We are friends with a couple who are beginner musicians. Last night we got together with our instruments and we played for each other. Can you believe that we were nervous playing for an "audience"? Even Bob played their piano. I don't think he was
nervous, just shy. He surprised us with his rendition of "When The Saints Go Marching In". The two of us on strings, played a duet. We weren't too bad. The other musician has become addicted to practicing the piano and for his piece, he played a concerto.
He is teaching himself and he played a concerto.!! He started in October to be interested in the piano. He sat down and played a concerto.! I am in awe. I've been a beginner for 4 years, or more. And he decided one day to play the piano and four months later
, he is making music. The only thing now is for me to practice more and become a musician. I am tired of being a beginner. If he can do it , I can do it. I am such a competitor, that I will rise to the challenge that I have set for myself. Is it too early
