Caught in the Act

Toby was caught in the act chewing the plastic protective covers of my pianos pedals… I was hoping to keep those on for awhile to protect the brass from getting scratched. Thanks to Toby the covers will be removed sooner than expected. I’ve forgotten how much puppies love to chew on everything!

While I practice piano Toby likes to take a nap underneath it or he lays his head on the pedals and sometimes I have to nudge him off when I need the sustaining pedal. Piano lessons are going wonderfully even though I’m still struggling to read music. I’m so bad at reading music that my instructor allowed me to temporally write the notes onto my sheet music, which is something she doesn’t like… one day it will all sink in (at least that’s what I keep telling myself)!

For the last couple of weeks I’ve been working on Unchained Melody, it’s a more advanced piece for my beginner level and I’m glad my teacher approved it… I was getting bored with the beginner pieces (like Fire Fly). I’m pushing myself harder to learn this piece since it is a song that I enjoy. The first week I worked on the melody, last week it was the chords with peddling… now just putting those together is taking time. I’m sure I’ll be working on Unchained Melody for many weeks to come. Back to practicing I go…

Thanks for visiting ~ Jovi
