That Blynken Piano

Blynken had her second piano lesson today. She seems excited about the opportunity, but the catch has been to get her to calm down and pay attention so that she can learn.

Everyone wants to get right to it, to be able to play immediately, but we must walk before we can run. So with piano we must learn fingerings, names of notes, how to read music, how to count -- boring but necessary.

The mantra in our house is "work first, then play". They hate to be reminded of it, but it's a life lesson. But soon, in its time -- there will be music.
