Recital



Tonight Moses (my son....well that's not his real name but it's a long story) had a private piano recital. He did fabulously well. I felt sorry for the friends who didn't make it; we had 7 total strangers come because they had heard him at the general student recital and had wanted to hear him again. That was gratifying! He played 7 songs, from Georgia on My Mind to Moonlight Sonata, for a 30 minute recital. His teacher commented that a junior college recital for piano majors lasts 30 minutes... Pretty good for my 15 year old!

I know it's not a great photo, but if I'd been trying to arrange a great shot, I'd have made him nervous. :-)

What an accomplishment! I'm glad to see he is willing to share his talent. (And he looks like he's having fun!)

Karen (http://karenkool.blogspot.com/) would be so impressed. I know I am. I played the trombone when I was his age. God, that's embarrassing.

I like the compostition of the photo. The "over the top" look. I hope you can get the video onto youtube. I love piano music. Congrats to you and "Moses."

That's great -- and it really says a lot about his talent that those 7 folks who had heard him earlier came back for more! Please do let us know if something goes up on YouTube!
