It’s a rare double post Sunday. This afternoon Hunter had his spring piano recital. The fact that he can hold himself together these days to continue with piano is an accomplishment. He has a committed piano teacher, Mrs. Erbele who juggles with Hunter’s schedule along with his choir and band instructor, Mrs. Wolff. He takes piano lessons during what is normally choir one day a week during school. Piano practice is another thing that comes between homework, after sports and most often Sunday afternoons when he would rather be shooting baskets in the barn.
Today both sets of Hunter’s grandparents along with Nathan, the girls and me were there to watch Hunter play. In the past the recital is on a grand piano in the local Lutheran church. This year it was changed to the band room at our local school.
Miss E and I “sneaked” (as she says) and recorded his duet with his classmate and his solo piece on my phone. Here are two short videos with both piano pieces.
Piano duet, “Fiesta Fun” with classmate, Julianna
Piano solo, “Ballade”
We are proud of our piano playing boy. Happy Sunday!
i just love how well-rounded your young man is. 🙂

Okay. Hold on.
He needs to understand this:
A tall, handsome, ATHLETIC, kind-hearted, MUSICAL gentleman who is good with kids (I assume because of his sisters)…the ladies will go nuts over him. Tell him to keep it up, even if it’s just to impress the girls 😉
On the flip side, I was a musician for most of my lives and I could preach about the lessons in self-discipline and perseverance and all that jazz…

Excellent job Hunter. I remember playing that song one year. Luck for you, you didn’t have to have it memorized. Keep it up.
Such a well rounded young man! Bravo for a great performance!
WOW You should be so proud of your son. This truly made me smile. Great job.

Fun! Thanks for sharing your son’s talent with us. I’m glad you sneaked! 🙂 We bloggers are good at that. I sneaked at my son’s Confirmation this weekend, too. 🙂
