I started playing the piano when I was eight years old. I taught myself the basics. My sister had played the piano and I had listened in on the lesson.  I would go home, take my sisters sheet music practice. Then I started taking lessons. Now my teacher comes to my house. We moved the piano out of the living room and into the playroom. The playroom has a door so I can shut the door and play until my hearts content!

I have done two Christmas recitals. The days leading up the the performance I would play and I would play and I would play. When your sitting at the side of the stage, your nervous. Then you walk on the stage. You go to sit down and put up your music on the stand. Then you start playing and don't want to stop! When you finish your music you walk off stage smiling while everyone is clapping. You did a job well done.

My cousin plays the piano. My aunt gave me a cd of him playing the piano. One of my favorite songs is Fur Elise. I play the beginning of Fur Elise and my cousin can play the flu piece. My teacher gave me the full piece so that I can practice it. I listen to it just about every day. I even listen to it when I do math! That is how much I like it.

I am not the only one I know who plays the piano. I inspired my friend to play. Now he comes over before my lesson and he has a lesson! My other friend plays the piano. I love bringing my music books and playing at her house! I like playing at her house because I like sharing my music with other people and I like sharing what we have in common.

I wanted to thank my aunt for giving me the cd of my cousin. I love it. I want to be like him one day.  One of my goals is to play Fur Elise as good as he can. I will listen to that cd for ever!


  1. Grace this is Marlin you are so good at the piano and that song. I love that song can't wait see you tomorrow

  2. Winnie, the best thing we ever did was move that piano into the back room. Your Nana is looking down from heaven smiling every time she hears you play!

  3. That was well done, Grace. Music is something that you will enjoy for the rest of your life. Sharing it like you do will just make it better.
    Good job and stick with it.

  5. I love to hear you play! Did you have a recital last December? We must have been away if you did. I think you are becoming better all the time, keep up the good work!
