The Amazing Mrs. Smith

This is Emily and her piano teacher, the amazing Mrs. Smith. Emily took beginning piano a long time ago and recently (as in a couple months ago) had the good fortune to start taking private lessons from Mrs. Smith (her real name, BTW). She is an inspiring teacher. Last night was the spring recital. I enjoyed the whole thing, from the sprout that played "I'm a Little Teapot" to two of my "adopted daughters" (who happen to be sisters) that played the finale--an awesome arrangement of "Abide With Me".

Emily played "Spinning Song" and "The Old Rugged Cross". The latter brought tears to my eyes...she played with such emotion. Beautifully done!

Mrs. Smith is moving by the end of the summer at the latest. She will be sorely missed by her devoted students.
