here. My favorites are #1, #2, and, of course, Clair de Lune #14. Reid Nibley is a sensitive, accomplished pianist.
Every night before we can leave his room, Miles instructs:
"Hug and kiss and my music on and 'bye.' And I want the music with the leaf and the rose."
This may not seem related, but . . . I got a piano on Friday! My future seems so bright and complete now! I really was pining without a piano. You know, I took lessons from age 4 to 17, and I even taught a few students over the years. But I have been without a real piano since 2010.
Since we moved to Oklahoma, I've been thinking about getting a used piano. And now the timing was right, we had a good tax return, and I found a quality instrument on Craig's List. The man selling it was asking more than I planned on spending, but as soon as I tried it out and heard the tone quality, I fell in love. (The seller even turned out to be a piano mover and delivered it to us for free!) This piano has a mellow, bell-like sound, and the key action is good - not too loose.
Tonight I played Clair de Lune. My fingers still remember it! After a few measures, Miles' face lit up, he ran upstairs, then came back carrying his "leaf CD."
"Mom!" he said. "That's the song on my music!"
