Can You Tell The Difference?

Caleb Gets to take Piano Lessons!

Finally we have a found a piano teacher for our piano player Caleb! After these last 2 years of just teaching himself to play, he will finally have a real teacher to help him get even better!

Caleb has been accepted by one of the best. He is now taking piano lessons weekly up at the University from one of the directors of piano who is a concert pianist herself. She is extremely talented and we are happy Caleb is lucky enough to have her.

Caleb is an interesting student. He already knows how to play most things but he has never learned proper hand position and technique. He has always had his own way of playing any song and of course his own sense of rhythm.

So, now the challenge begins......we will see if his talent of playing songs can be improved by actually playing them the "right" way....
