Piano Lessons - Episode two

Yesterday I had my second Piano lesson. After a few hours of practice - and some hints and tips from Martin it's kind of starting to come together and make more sense. Turns out he knows Nikki Lambourn who used to be my singing (warbling) teacher, and has played at the Albert Hall when she was singing...small world?

Anyway - Posselq wanted to listen to me playing yesterday - but we're not ready for any kind of audience yet (who would want to listen to three bars of 'Clare de Lune' played badly - anyway?) I can do a half decent rendition of 'God Save the Queen' but luckily - I haven't found a way of posting music on here yet - so for now - you're all safe. 

I've got another four tunes to learn for next week and two of them have F sharp in them (that's one of the black notes apparently!)

I also had to pick up a music stand for Posselq's daughter - and I have to say that the staff in the music shop here in Banbury are amongst some of the nicest people I've ever met! The young man who came to set up the Piano here at the house last week was lovely - his Mother must be so very proud.
