Our New Piano

On Tuesday our new piano was delivered! It was actually my mom's piano, that she bought when I was a kid and taking piano lessons, but to us, it's new. The piano tuner is in the other room right now tuning it! Lucky for us, my mom was looking to clear out some space in her living room, so the piano is now in our dining room. We are thinking about started piano lessons for Draven-following the "every child will play an instrument and a sport" motto. He is still a little young, but our neighbor teaches and she is convenient and has good rates. So, we'll see how it goes for a couple of months.

He is already playing, as you can see in the picture. He picks a song from the Primary Song Book, looks at the words while he "plays" notes on the piano. He even sings along to his playing. I think it's really cute! I am even more impressed that he lets Brody play with him. They are such a good team.

That is awesome! I started teaching piano again this year after taking a few (okay a lot!) of years off. It's so fun to see those little new students progress! Good luck to Draven!

If he wants to do it & enjoys learning it, then he may not be too young. If the teacher will let him go at his own pace ... well, so long as he keeps going forward. Hope you guys enjoy it!!!

now's the perfect time to start lessons.
i'm so envious of your piano. i'm always looking for good deals on craigslist. draven needs to learn how to play some 80's music because pierce's music is killing me! just kidding!
