Tonight was our piano recital, but it was quite different from our typical recital. This was a jam session, complete with popular music and a drummer.
Clark played "Fireflies" and his fingers were flying, but he did a great job of staying right with the drums to some tricky rhythms.
Bethany played "Something That I Want" from Tangled and I've got to hand it to her-- she was seriously jamming with the drums. One of my favorite of the evening.
Faith was second to last and she and I played "Eight Days a Week" by the Beatles. She loves this song, has practiced it so much, and was spot on.
Now I ask you, why is the drummer the only one not making a rock star face, when he's the only one who is actually IN a rock band??!!
What fun it is to work with so many great kids. Do you see the young man in the striped black shirt on the left? That's Jakob. He played "Bohemian Rhapsody" and he was fantastic. This was his last recital with me because he is just too spectacular and I've got nothing left to teach him. After he performed he gave me a gift of a bling-y treble clef sign necklace. I'm gonna miss that guy! Good thing he's friends with Clark so he'll still be hanging around.
As soon as we arrived home Clark announced, "Mom, now that the recital is done you can start thinking about the Christmas recital."
Clark, I didn't realize you loved it so much:)
