We have a short clip of Riley’s two songs she played at her recital last weekend.  “The Lion Sleeps Tonight” and “The Happy Stream”.  Unfortunately the first few lines of “The Lion Sleeps Tonight” were not recorded…..we were a bit late getting the video ready!

Riley started taking piano this fall and really enjoys it.  She still struggles with reading the music, and not playing too fast, but she does tremendously well with ‘playing by ear’ and has figured out a number of songs, surprising her teacher!

Brooke may start lessons next Fall (2012) and we aren’t sure if Trevor will take them or not.  He really would like to take guitar lessons but I don’t know of any instructors in our area.
