Piano News

Cowodie participated in his second piano recital yesterday. He did wonderful. RacerDad and I are both very proud of his progress. He is starting to take piano very seriously, practicing more each week. His only disappointment is that his instructor will not give him Christmas music. The instructor is wanting to just continue along in the books.

We did find a "new to us" piano this weekend. Our piano has been in a sad state since we received it. My mom purchased it for the boys 4 years ago. It was not an expensive piano and it had not been taken care of by its previous owner. We were thrilled to have any piano at the time and it was a true blessing to our family. But as time went on and Cowodie played more it became obvious that we needed to invest in a better instrument. The final push we needed to make the decision was the piano tuner. He told me after tuning the last time we would do better to spend our tuning money on a new piano. Next week the piano tuner will move our new Kimball studio piano into our home. It needs to be tuned, but even with that it sounds so much better than our current one!

How WONDERFUL!!! I hope that my son loves music. We have a piano and I was "teaching" him when he was tiny. I hope to start him lessons in a year or two, but he wants to play the guitar. This is fine with me, but Iam trying to explain to him that a foundation in piano will make all other instruments much easier. We will see...

I am so happy for you that you have a new piano!!! :)
