Dorothy’s Musical Thoughts
Recital piece memorized!
Cole was the first student to completely memorize his recital piece he chose at piano lessons and show me how well he can perform it. He is holding the music but he doesn’t need to look at it anymore. Great job, Cole. Way not to procrastinate about getting the job done. Now he’s working on the rest of his pieces to play for the Keyboard Merit judge!!
