Six-year old Hayley played her piece for me with excellent implementation of the various dynamic markings. I was astounded, particularly because I knew that her parents had recently given away her piano in order to move and so she’s been practicing on a low-end keyboard until they get another piano. I asked her how she managed to play with such wonderful dynamics even though she couldn’t practice them during the week. She replied, “Well, when I’m practicing I just think about them so that I play them right when I come here.” I think I was speechless. Can some of my highschool students with perfectly functioning pianos please take a lesson from this amazing 6-year old? 🙂
