Quote of the Day: Where words leave off music begins. from the cover of a new journal I bought called Rhapsody. It’s a gorgeous Black Rock Journal, all black cover with silver letters and musical notations. It was screaming my name when I walked into the book store. The pages are smooth, and my pen glides across like notes in a bluesy piece when you know what it’s saying even when you can’t hear the words.

Here is an excellent article that busts the Myths of Learning to Play the Piano. It is particularly good for any adult who has been longing to play, but has hang-ups about what it takes.
May you have many musical moments this spring!
Go. Create. Inspire!
Journaling Prompt: Do you have someone to thank for giving you the gift of music, either in lessons, or sharing their song?

I started when I was young, I think it’s easier to learn when young. Good luck.
I get excited about a new journal too 🙂
I am a 63-year-old adult just now learning to play the piano. And it’s hard, but it’s something I’ve wanted to do since I’m 8, so it feels wonderful.
I took piano lessons growing up and now my daughter is taking them. I well remember the recitals at the end of the school year — with fondness.
Have a great weekend, Mary.
Our son is a musician. He makes beautiful music. This picture is adorable, Mary! It does take courage. (((hugs)))
I played different instruments, when I was younger. Played clarinet in junior high band. Took guitar lessons for about a year. Had a neighbor who taught me how to play the piano. Don’t play any of them anymore. : (
Mary, I hear about your “kids” all the time, and now, it was fun to see them all lined up. I interviewed a piano player today and enjoyed hearing about the piano teacher who inspired her. You are making a difference! 🙂
I was fortunate enough to start piano lessons from the tender age of 9 years old. Over the years, I confess that there were long spells when I didn’t play as much as I should have, but you never forget the “feel” when you sit down and play after a long time…
