I have been taking piano lessons for 6 years. So, I know that whenever January comes, it is time to start working on the annual spring piano recital.
The first few years, I dreaded the recitals. I hated playing in front of people. I was always afraid that I am make a big mistake. But the last few years, I realized how fun recitals really are. Sure, you have to listen to kids play simple piano pieces, or really long, hard pieces for 2 and a half hours, but I have really like having people listen to just me for about 5 minutes.
Anyway, the recital was on Friday night. My dad took the family out to dinner, and then we went to the church where the recital took place.
My friends were there, since they use the same piano teacher I do.
I played 3 songs that night.
"How Beautiful" by Twila Paris
"Sand Castles" by Martha Mier
"New Orleans Jazz" by Martha Mier
Here is a video my friend took of me playing the last 2 songs. :P
I love recital and I had a great time. :)
I am already looking forward to next year. :)
