I am teaching McKinzie and Syreese piano this year. I have taught Kinz since she was a Kindergartener, and now she is a Senior in high school. It is interesting on lesson days, but we are getting into the routine. Either Kinz or Syreese plays with the girls while I teach the other one. Well, they will play with Ellie and I hold Lynnie on my lap and try to have her not cry.
Anyway, today was Ensemble Festival. Syreese played with Josh Conklin (Kinz's student) and they did great. I got to be Kinz's partner, and I am just glad that only she was being judged. She has been better than me for years, and we picked a good piece that was a challenge for her.
This page was our favorite, with lots of hand crossing and holding fingers up so we weren't in each other's way.
