Today is my first piano recital. I want to try out the piano, but the room is filling with people, and that makes me too shy to sit down and play.
I love music, and I'm happy with my progress so far. I'm playing "Fur Elise" by Beethoven and Pachelbel's "Canon" today.
I dressed up special. Mom even bought me a new blue dress. Do I look pretty?
Maybe I'll just play one note. I won't sit down. I'll just stand here and touch the piano. Maybe no one will notice. But I wish they would notice. Oh no, I don't. But I hope they will like me when it's my turn to play at my first recital.
Happy music and art, Cinder LeDell
