Can you ask him if he wants it - otherwise I'll have to find a piano pupil with worms!unsure.png

My son says he could use another one, but it would probably cost quite a lot to post. Maybe there's a needy sheep farmer locally?

So I've done four sessions at the hospital so far, and it's been quite fun, if a bit random. I've averaged one interruption per session, mostly it's small children wanting a go (though the beaming parents who kept filming while their toddler climbed me and the piano to pound the keyboard really should have known better). Someone wanted to know if I played the guitar too and could accompany caroling at the wards, which unfortunately I don't so I can't. 

 

I also decided to sightread the Mendelssohn Christmas pieces - there's one in G minor which I completely ignored the key signature of for half the piece so it switched abruptly from G major to G minor blink.png I don't think anyone noticed. I hope.

What a lovely thing to do. They're lucky to have you.

I agree with Banjogirl - it's a wonderful thing to do and will be very much appreciated! I'm glad you're having fun too!
