I play piano every day. Sometimes I just walk by and touch a few keys. Sometimes my baby brother joins me, but he bangs. Sometimes I play with my Mommy.
Mommy has a band, and they practice here. I like to watch the drummer. I know just how he plays. I study him all the time. And when I play the drums, nobody can hear anything but me!
But I love the piano most. I can make up songs. I like to sing while I play. Mommy writes my songs down on paper, and we go to the schools around here and sing my songs for kids.
Sometimes after Daddy comes home from work, he'll sit at the piano and put me on his lap. We'll sing "Sunshine on my Shoulders." I used to say, "Chunchine on my cholders," but now I'm older. I can say "Sunshine."
Happy music and art, Cinder LeDell
