Simply Music: four month review

This is about where Fiona is in her Simply Music piano practice at the four month mark. It's not her complete repertoire; she actually can play seven pieces now, though she's still in the middle of learning Beethoven's Ode to Joy. She enjoys it a great deal, and we enjoy hearing her discover new ideas about music by playing daily. After having read Ingrid Law's Savvy she considers piano playing to be her own savvy. It's great to hear her plop down with no prompting at the piano to try her repertoire or try to sound out melodies she's heard. If I had to goad her, it would lose a lot of the power and joy that piano playing holds now. It's really exciting for the entire family.

Sr. Monika watched the video, Fiona, and she said tell you she loves your hand positions and your musical interpretation. She has been playing for a long time, and really appreciates good music! love, Gran
