    Thank you for your lovely and sometimes amusing comments.
I'm sorry that the "piano" experience was so bad for some of you! My first lessons were in the Community Hall of a small bush town. The hall was built of tin and in the sweltering Australian heat it was so hot that I had to go to the outside water tank to have a drink and let the water run over my wrists to cool me down during lessons.
When I practised at home the dog would sit at the door and howl at the music. What a critic!
Una: Dolmetsch was Swiss born but living in Paris. He was very interested in ancient instruments and when I was in my early teens recorders were very popular in the schools. There is a lot about Dolmetsch on the Web.

    Beautiful image, although it brings back bad memories of my mother forcing me to take piano lessons when I had absolutely no musical talent ;-)

    Congrats on a fine finish. My piano teacher would rap our knuckles with a wooden ruler when we made a mistake so my memories are not good on this subject LOL

    Good presentation here! I am bothered a bit by the background in the upper right corner. Black and white here give this one a nostalgic feel.

    oh dear such memories for me. My mother was a talented singer and piano lessons would be such fun.
after two weeks ....... the teacher advised my mother that money spent on music lessons for me was such a waste of her time and my mothers money
the use of black and white works well here

    This reminds me of the many hours of practice my son put into his love for the piano.

    Nice shot, it reminds of the two or three weeks my mom made me take piano lesson, I ended up playing the drums! She also made me take tap dancing lessons, that didn't work out either!!

    How wonderful you still have your first piano lessons book. I like your composition and the hint of the surounds in the reflection.
