I'm going on a road trip tomorrow with the Messenger College choir. I leave in the morning and we're performing the pre-show for the Peter Pan show that's in town and Cathy Rigby is Peter Pan. Maybe we'll get to meet her. I don't know about that. But, since there is no piano, I have switched to playing flute for this occasion. We are doing Christmas Carols. Since I don't feel like writing another post, I will add to this one that my piano is coming along fairly well. There may be 6 strings I will need to by. We've been taking them down a few at a time off of the piano and we accidentally soaked a few too long. My mom hurt her back, so we weren't paying attention to that at the moment. Anyway, I think we could have saved those to, if it hadn't been left in the vinegar solution. Vinegar is great for cleaning brass, by the way, and is an amazing natural cleaner. I'm 2.8 tenths paid for on my piano and I will be saving so I can repair it. I think it's one you have to see in person to really appreciate. I guess it was meant to be mine. I'm in the thought processes of thinking about my masters at Pitt State University in Kansas. I was told there are assistance ships where you work yourself through school by teaching and accompanying. You get a scholarship plus a stipend. But, I'm still in the very beginning stages of thinking this through. Also try to have good posture while playing. I'm trying to as I'm afraid I might be hunchbacked as I age due to poor posture at the piano. And, how do you get people to put their thumbs up in line with their other fingers. They tend to hang and it's hard to change this habit. Well, happy playing.
