About a month and a half ago, my Marmee's friend, Melissa approached me about giving her 9 year old daughter, Delaney, piano lessons. After thinking and praying about it I decided to go for it! Since it was her first music lesson we both had a first, along with all the nervousness and anxiety that go with it! =]
I think it went really well... she already learned a song (which really pleased both her and her mom!) and all about the Grand Staff (I'm not sure how much of this was actually comprehended, but at least she has exposure to it!)
My favorite part was watching her face light up when she played her song - it was so sweet!
Playing her first song together
Playing on her own!
Us two Newbies! =]
I had so much fun teaching (I think I learned as much as she did!) and can't wait for our next lesson!
P.S. Please ignore our messy house... we are getting ready to rip up our carpet and put down laminate hard wood, so it is quite a mess!
