I "dislike" (hate is a strong word) the piano. I've only been playing for a day or so, and it's all ready driving me crazy! The piano is a merciless instrument. If it can annoy you, it will. If it has a choice between cooperation and being stubborn, it'll be stubborn. If it..., well yeah, you get the idea.
I've been down at the music hall a lot of yesterday and all day today working on "A Whole New World" (from Disney's Aladdin). That song is HARD! I've heard some rumors that Ms. Remmy (the piano instructor) gives you a really difficult song to work on first because she likes to see you mess up! I don't really believe in gossip and rumors, and it seems ridiculous that a teacher would want to do that, but you never know. I was only assigned the first page to practice, since I'm a beginner, but still, it is hard.
I've been working a lot of the chords. This song is different from others because the chords are all in the right hand instead of the left.
After so many hours of practicing, I can't get the song out of my head! It's really bothering me :P

Wish me luck, I'm going to need it! :(



  1. That's a pretty advanced song, especially considering you just started playing! Bre had to play it in high school, but of course she had been playing (flute) for several years at the time.

    Good luck with your recital, Avery! I'm sure you'll do okay if you relax and just let the music flow out of your fingers. =)

  2. Good luck! Forget you are performing, just play! And never believe gossip.

  3. Good Luck! I am sorry you don't like it, but I am sure you'll be very good at "A Whole New World".

    See you later!
