What Miss Shelly Discovered In A Nightmare Piano Lesson

Miss Shelly's Nightmare Piano Lesson

Shelly took a deep breath.  

Her lesson wasn’t going the way she thought it would.  A fun and simple song had turned into a struggle of multiple problems- technique, rhythm and simply playing the right sequence of notes.  She had to catch herself as she was becoming visibly flustered.

 

“Did I do something wrong Ms Shelly?”  Evan asked innocently from the piano bench.

Evan was only 5 years old and a beautiful boy with striking blue eyes set under a golden white head of closely cropped hair.

 

“No Evan, of course not.  I’m just thinking of a better way to show you this song, that’s all.”
