September 2, 2010

Since I was little, by virtue of my parentage I've been able to play any song by ear on the piano --- but only with one hand and one finger at a time. There was a Yamaha baby grand in the downstairs of the house I lived in for 18 years growing up and yet only tonight, at 38 years' old, have I ever played any piece with two hands. Ezra taught me the left-hand part of the Ode to Joy.
