Since I have played piano, my mother (aka MamaDaisy, who is the grand young age of 78!) has often said she would like to learn.
"No problem" say I. "I can teach you".
So, today we sit at the piano with her tutorial book, and I go through the basics of finding all the A's, B's, C's etc up and down the keyboard, then finger numbers, staves, and counting.
"Ooh...I'll never remember all this!" says MamaD
"It'll take time, but you'll eventually get the hang of it with practice. Read your book as much as you can at the piano, whilst playing a couple of keys to practice your counting. Do you want me to go over anything again, or is there anything you want to ask?"
"Yes" says she......"When will I fit in doing my knitting?"
" " say I.
We're (supposedly) booked for half hour every Wednesday morning. Watch this space....
