So back around the beginning of 2018 my son Daniel decided to start studying under a piano teacher. 3 years and a few months later, this would be only his second recital thanks to Covid-19. In this time he has actually graduated from the teacher you see here to a new one. In the ~33 years of teaching piano, Daniel is only the 2nd student she has considered graduated from the program. In her own words, “Daniel has moved beyond what I can teach him.”

I can’t really describe how cool it is to watch somebody progress musically they way he has. I don’t take pride in it, this is all him, but it’s been fascinating, inspiring, and if I’m being honest, I’m also a bit envious. Below are links to the two pieces he performed. At this point he’s been working on them for about two months.

I chose the Shorter Whitman because of his work, "Song of Myself" and because of my self-deprecating sense of humor. I am under no illusion that I can write successful essays or poetry, but I have been known to write them anyway.
