I remember that piano piece! I love your take on this, Helen. Practice really pays off, huh?
My mother tried to make me play the piano, hours of practice, but i was hopeless. Loved your poem and it made me smile. Thank you.
... I performed this at a competition on flute eons ago .. my best friend Julie accompanied me on piano!!!
wow....would def be very cool to hear...and practice that is one thing that often seperates the serious from the rest.....
LOVELY,,SHORT AND SWEET!!!
I could hear the music in my mind as soon as I saw your title. I bet it was an impressive performance!
Fourteen and fantastic
My goodness..you must have been a child prodigy if you played this at the correct speed. Well done!
Must confess ... I was over the two minute mark. Going for quality over quantity.
And were you buzzed while you were doing it? An ill-manaered question. Bear, behave yourself! Even if the woman does understand oregano. Well done, m'love!Blessings and Bear hugs!Bears NotingLife in the Urban Forest (poetry)
...what a rewarding moment to have with... to play a piano has always been a great frustration for me... glad you can make good from it... smiles...
I can see and hear it all now! Great, Helen.
Love where this prompt took you! I played piano but never this piece and certainly never won any gold medals!
Yes, I remember that piano piece as well. Good for you for acquiring a gold medal. Your poem brings to mind the one time I was in a piano recital. Absolutely went mind blank in the middle of one of my two pieces. Fingers stopped on the keys. After what seemed an eternity, I began again and completed the piece. This probably was one of my most embarrassing moments ever......I can still feel what it was like!http://inthecornerofmyeye.blogspot.com/2013/05/bee-friend-our-bees.html
Mary, that happened to me once during a choral concert ~ I had a small solo part! I thought I would die right there and then.
Congrats for all your hard work ~ My daughter (14 years old) is practicing right now for her June recital and exams ~ I hope she passes but I have to nag her everyday ~ Smiles ~
Helen!! I am so impressed--I played flute too (I love that instrument) played piano too (did not love it that much). However, I NEVER got to the point I could play flight of the Bumblebees--wow. I'm bowing to your prowess. :-)
I hope you're still playing!
Love this, I too am a flute fan!
I had to learn to play that on the flute in High School....lots of practice but never really good just OK I thinkI still have the flute but i bet my fingers will not do the bee thing any more!!!
Easier on my fingers than on my lips/mouth/embouchure.
I love that piece! Great poem, Helen!
