A New Challenge

Last night was my piano lesson. Liz seemed most impressed with my grasp on Mozart's Rondo Alla Turca. Although, I haven't practiced the last page much at all. I've put a lot of practice into the fast part in the middle.

So she gave me some new music to work on. Ever heard of Maurice Ravel? I'll admit, I wasn't too familiar with his work. But he's like famous. And French. And dead. Dead since 1935. But I'm going to try to learn his Sonatine, anyway. It's much different from any music I've played before... it's going to be a real challenge.
