When I was young, I played several musical instruments. I started out playing the flute and then moved up to the clarinet. I grew up in a very musical family as my dad was a saxophone player when he was younger and my sister is currently climbing her way up the iTunes charts with her newly released single. So, as you can see- music is in my blood!
However, after going through middle/high school playing instruments, I gave it up. It was not that I didn’t like doing it; it just happened that other activities interested me more at the times. I gradually gave up my instruments and unfortunately today, I don’t know how to play any instruments.
A little over a year ago though, my love for music started to make an appearance in my life. My husband’s grandmother (who was very dear to my heart) passed away and left us with a baby grand piano. After she passed and her wish for us was to have this fantastic piano, I saw it as a huge sign that I needed to start loving music again. While contemplating if I should start playing the clarinet again, I decided that for the time being I was going to forgo that, and start to learn to play the piano.
I also decided that it would be extremely fun for both my daughter and I to start taking piano together. Since we both are newbies, I thought it would be a great time to start lessons and learn simultaneously. Hayley was all for this and was elated when I told her that we would be doing this together. I called up a local piano teacher and our first lesson is going to be next week. I can’t wait!
In preparation for next week, I decided to check out Music scores from Greatscores. I want to learn to play a vast array of music and what a better way than to see original scores. Hayley and I sat down and went through all the scores of music and found some great selections that we would both like.
I will keep you updated how it goes in the future. Wish us luck as we being our journey to learning to play the piano!
