  1. I considered trading language arts tutoring hours for piano lessons this summer :)

  2. The last song I was working on when I stopped taking lessons was "Rustle of Spring" by Christian Sinding. Really fun to play. :-)

  3. hopefully my baby has lots of hair. im pretty sure i was bald for a while..
    and im real jealous of your piano skills, we took lessons when i was younger, but never stuck with them. its one of my major regrets...

  4. Wow, what a list! I would love to listen to you play.
