Monday evening Hannah played in her second piano recital and she played so beautifully!!
She’s been playing for about a year and a half now and is doing great! We’ve incorporated practice into our normal morning routine which is a huge help. The consistency of daily practice makes such a difference in her playing!
She started the evening by playing, ‘Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star’ and it was ‘exquisite’ (using Nana’s term after she played.) Her crossover was beautiful. Unfortunately I missed the first bit on the recording as she was so excited to start Mommy just wasn’t ready.
After her first piece I joined her at the piano and we played a short duet together. I think Mommy was more nervous than Hannah was but I can’t tell you how amazing it was to be playing a duet with MY DAUGHTER!! We are so blessed to have one another and I am forever grateful to God for the gift of Hannah is my life! I’m one blessed and thankful mommy!!!
The evening ended with Sharon’s (aka Nana) nephew Chris playing a medley of songs from he had composed from the movie, ‘Frozen.’ Chris is an amazing pianist and composer and it was great to hear him play again! I often listen to his compositions that he has uploaded onto YouTube. I didn’t have my camera with me when he played but this is a version of the same that he previously recorded and uploaded to YouTube.
At the end of the evening, Hannah won an award for 10 weeks of practicing at least 5 days a week. My practice habits when I was learning to play were inconsistent and poor at best and I want to offer Hannah a better learning experience so I have made a 1800 turn when it comes to our practice habits.
It was a treat to listen to all of Sharon’s students play. What a beautiful evening it was!
Way to go Hannah! You are doing so well with your piano lessons and Mommy is so proud of you!!
Thank you Nana for the gift of music that you are instilling in our girl!
