My schedule has gotten rather packed and I’m not 100% certain that I can keep posting twice a week. So enjoy this filler post where I outsource my drawing task to my ~4-year-old piano students at the Old Town School.
I give kids five minutes of interpretive crayon-ing while I play a piece by a different composer each week. Sometimes the kids have pretty bizarre interpretations, like once a kid thought my Fur Elise sounded like Grandpa Dancing. Perhaps it’s a comment on my clunky playing.
