Recital for Baby Elias

As I was playing the piano this morning I was thinking that the next time the little fellow comes I'm gonna' pull his crib right up close to the piano and play those Bach chorals and variations I was just playing. Those pure sounds he has got to hear, to remind him of where he came from.

Lovely thought Charles. Oh how I wish I had learned to play the piano. I took lessons for 5 years but I never learned to read music because I was too terrified of Sister Mary whatever to be able to function properly. I used practice and play by ear. So I have a very well developed ear and a natural capacity to pick out the notes and chords (even on the guitar). Maybe when I retire...

My Mother played the piano..all the time. When my bro and I were about 6 we began lessons on solo instruments which came naturally since we were exposed to good music every evening. She would accompany each practice session on the piano and also attend every lesson. I am glad she did. She nurtured a God given talent within me. When I had to choose a career, I applied to and auditioned for the New England Conservatory where I took my degree. For the past 34 years I have taught professionally, thus nurturing other God given talents.
'TRAIN UP A CHILD IN THE WAY HE SHOULD GO' is a proverb I am glad my Mother heeded!
Thanks Be To God.
