Still, she paused and fidgeted and then leaned over and told her teacher she wasn't going to get distracted. Then she finally began to play the piano with more animation than I have ever seen!
Her first song was Jazz Jig.
Then she played Party Cat, or maybe I should say played and danced to it!
During the reception she told me "I didn't get distracted!" That was the final clue that it was worrying about being distracted, not actually playing that made her so nervous. Still it was precious!
She will be taking a break from private lessons for the summer but will still be practicing. Maybe we should work on this whole getting distracted by worrying about getting distracted business!
