After much sweet talking, an ice cream bribe, and 6 takes, I was able to obtain a video of Mario playing Canon D on the piano. She took piano lessons for a few years to learn the basics, but quit when it got in the way of other activities. Even so, she never lost her love of playing and has taught herself quite a few songs.
Having the piano in the living room means we are all blessed with listening to her plink through the notes, playing certain measures over and over and over again. Chip once whispered in my ear, “Mom. She’s been playing that song for FIVE hours.” And I replied, “I know. But she’s almost got it.”
And when she does, my heart fills with pride listening to her play. I hope you all enjoy it as much as I do.
