Emma has been taking piano lessons for several months now, all building up to The Big Recital. We practiced “Good King Wenceslas” at home dozens of times over the past six weeks. We can now all sing the song either by word (“Good King Wenceslas went out…”) or note (C C C G E C G F…)
The day of the performance arrived just after I had returned from a business trip to Japan. I was somewhat worried that I would doze off during the show thanks to jet lag and miss the whole thing. Luckily, this was not the case and I was able to watch Emma perform flawlessly – including a proper bow at the end.
