I have been talking about taking piano lessons for the past five years since we inherited our piano. Finally, last week, I had a piano lesson for the first time since I was twelve. I found out that I kind of remember-ish how to read music. I sort of remember-ish how to do scales.

The teacher has me working out of a "Returning to the Piano" book. It is kind of a refresher that ramps you up slowly from the easy stuff to the harder stuff. I ordered some other books too. I want to learn to play my favorite song,  Alison by Elvis Costello.  I looked at it today. It might take awhile to nail this one. It has a lot of sharps. I kind of remember-ish sharps.


  1. That's wonderful! My kids have been taking lessons and my oldest is starting to play pieces I can't sight read as easily - it may be time to practice more for me too!

  2. This makes me want to play again. I used to play piano all the time and took lessons for years. But I haven't touched any keys in over a decade. Not sure I even remember-ish.

  3. You would totally slip back in, Katherine! I'm amazed at what I actually remember from 38 (!) years ago! xo
