The song on strings

My new student Crystal is six. Each week I asked if she practised, and she unapologetically piped up, “Nope!”

One day the concept twigged. Crystal was practising! Her mother said it’s nothing to do with her, and I marvelled that a little kid had the presence of mind to go to a piano and practise, without encouragement.

Crystal hasn’t gotten to proper notation yet, she’s playing big, well-labelled notes in picture form.

Today she bopped in and showed me she had practised well beyond my assignment!

I played the one on strings!


The one on strings…the stave! How great is that 🙂
