When I was first born my dad said I had "Piano Fingers". I grew up with family that loved music, playing different instruments from bass drum to violin, to piano/organ along with singing. My first picture taken at the piano I was 3. If I had a scanner I would post it. By age 7, I loved the piano and wanted to play more and more. My aunt Martha took me by the hand and started teaching me. All through my childhood I kept at playing but mainly playing around. I sang more than I played. These are my talented gifts God gave me. To sing and play. Even though now, I have to re-train my vocal chords and throat muscles along with my fingers on my right hand, I still have my love for music. The other day, my husband fixed up my keyboard so I could try to play. I was excited to try and promised not to get frustrated. We didn't know how my right hand would take to moving across the piano keys. A little messy, three of my fingers wanted to hit more keys together, I managed to play chopsticks and a little bit of Für Elise by Beethoven. One of my therapist told me about another patient who used the piano and did very well at progressing. I will practice more but very happy to have this determination.
Here is one of my favorite classical pieces:
Not only do I like classical music I have many songs that I like but too many favorites. I wanted to share two more that have recently brought back memories. The first is "Pass It On" that I played a lot my teen years. Wanting to pass on God's love to everyone. The second song is a song I sang with a group in 2003-2004, "Shout to The Lord" which has been sung by many artists. I don't have a video of me but maybe sometime I will share.
Thanks for reading. May God bless you. Have a great day!
