I've always wanted to learn how to play the piano. When I was in middle school (grades 6-8), I played the French Horn. Of course, as a young teenage girl, I wanted to play the flute or the clarinet as my first choice, but those spots filled up quickly. So, I looked around and decided that the French Horn wasn't too bad of a consolation. It was great learning how to read music, being a part of a group working toward a common goal, and being in the marching band was fun. Except, marching band practice was very early. I'm talking 7:30am, which is very early for a teenager!
When I reached high school, I became more interested in sports, student council, and other clubs, so I quit being in band. Now that I'm in my thirties, and a mom, I appreciate my music experience more, and I wish I would have stuck with it and maybe even learned more instruments.
Piano is one of those instruments that I wish I would have learned as a child or young adult. As a matter of fact, we actually had a piano at home for awhile and my sister took lessons. But, at that point, I already had my mind on other things. The only thing I learned on that piano was "Three Blind Mice."
However, now that I have a little one of my own, I have a renewed interest in learning music. Tomorrow, Thursday, November 5, 2015, there is a promotion on Amazon for a FREE e-book on how to learn to play the piano. I can't wait to download it myself, and start learning now, so that when June is 4 or 5 years old, I can help her learn.
