I had a piano recital once.
I started playing when I was maybe 12 and I think I stopped when I was 13.
My recital was in the music store where I took lessons.
I had picked out "Endless Love" to play.
The movie that was not appropriate for me to see at that age, but I had, and who doesn't love Lionel Richie?
So, when Zoe was 5 years old we began looking into piano lessons for her.
Surely it would be easier to learn music at a younger age than I had feebly tried in 1983.
But, leukemia came along and we held off.
More important things to do.
But, last Fall her father walked across the campus of Millikin University where he works to sign her up for piano lessons with Hue Jeong Jang.
Zoe has always said she wants to play.
Our piano looms large in our dining room and needs attention.
And her brain needs extra stimulation because of the trauma it's enduring.
She was the first player on the roster.
