Another First

I guess the whole Kindergarten year is full of firsts.  First time reading, first time tying her shoes, first loose tooth, and now her first piano recital!  This post probably only interests the grandparents and this proud momma, but here is our little Avery at her first piano recital over Thanksgiving break.

 

If you notice it was a very small recital! The advantages of teaching her myself. The recital was only a few minutes long =)

She also attempted to play her first duet with Nana. Pretty fun!

    How cute! My almost 7 year old has been asking about taking piano lessons for a while now, don’t suppose you know anyone who would be interested in teaching her some very basic stuff? Maybe just a short 6 week course or something to see if she really wants to keep at it. I had looked into it last year, but unless I wanted her to be in a group lesson it was way out of our price range right now!

      I could do it for a few weeks if you want to just check out and see if she’s interested. You could actually probably teach her to. If you go to Mr. E’s and just ask them for a beginner piano book, they will show you some good options. You just go through the book and do what each page tells you to. At the early stages, you don’t need to be a pro piano player to teach them. That’s so fun she wants to take piano!

    We got her a big keyboard for Christmas last year because she was so interested but life got to us and it never quite happened! I think I will try that, to see if I can at least make sure she is really interested beyond the initial thought before spending a lot of money:) Maybe if that goes well we can set something up later on!
