Piano Festival

Over a month ago Chloe had her first piano festival.  I didn’t post about it because I didn’t have any pictures or video and nothing clever to say.  But I filmed her today!  So now it doesn’t matter what I write.  But I guess I should explain.  A festival is where you perform in front of judges.  In a room.  By yourself (that is the reason for no pictures).  They judge you, write down some comments and send them to your piano teacher.  Chloe practiced really hard and received a ‘superior’ rating (that’s the highest).  I’m very proud of her. 

Here she is playing ‘Cookies’ and ‘Alpine Melody’.  She’s a bit rusty since it was a long time ago.

And here is a song she is composing.  It doesn’t have a name but it has some lyrics.  “I love you.  I love two.  I love three.”

Wow! She's composing already at her age?!?!? That's awesome. I'm impressed with her form. My teachers were always telling me to curve my fingers and I still don't curve them very well...She looks and sounds great!

Brett composes all the time, he writes songs like titanic and 4 wheeling and stuff like that! That is awesome she recieved a superior! Brett decided not to participate in festival this year it would have been his 5th year, it is a great experience and last year he got a trophy! I hope she loves piano as much as brett still does after playing for almost 5 and a half years!

Are you kidding me? I'm in love. What a little cutie. She is really good! Did you play growing up too? I didn't and have major regrets...(my mom is a piano teacher!) so I'm making my kids learn. That is just awesome. Good job Chloe.

I'd like to see more of you and your kids. I'm so glad you blog. I like your style.
I forget...do you play the piano too?
