His First Concert…Tickling the Ivories
Oh, the delight to see a child tickle the ivories for the first time, in a store window no less.
Here, he is receiving instructions from his mother on what to do. His mother played the piano back several years ago.
He is listening, so intently to her words…
“So Mom, what do you think?”…
Little Man started concentrating so much, the next thing I know, he jumps off the bench and sits on his knees to get a better position for his wrists.
What a riot!
In the meantime, Little Man’s mommy went and asked the store clerk, “How much is that cute piano in the window?”
Their response? “$300.00!”
“Good grief, I said.” “Is it made of gold?”
So for now, there won’t be any more piano concerts for a while.
Do you remember your first instrument you tried as a child?
I played the clarinet. Unfortunately, it wasn’t a good fit for me in the long run.
Have a marvelous day.
Thank you for your lovely comments in the last week. It means so much!
