Entry from 2/14/12 (Emma)
This student, who is also a very, very dear friend of mine, played a BEAUTIFUL and energetic rendition of “Battle Hymn of the Republic”. It was recital-worthy & delightfully done. She is also going to show me how to sew pillow cases. One of these years, I’d love to make pillow cases for my students – as the Christmas presents. There you have it… no longer a secret. ;) We’ll see if that will happen, but it’s definitely something that will be simpler than shopping for random gifts – and who doesn’t want a piano music pillowcase under their heads at night? I know I do! But more than learning “how” to sew something like that, is the wonderfulness of hanging out with her. She is such a delight, and so full of life & joy – it’s truly contagious & a blast! I can’t wait! :) Every week is full of surprises, laughter, and wonderful excitement. Life is good! Piano, crafts, hobbies, music, laughter, hugs, and fellowship – it’s such a wonderful thing to be a teacher!
