I ran across some pictures while looking for something else, and my mind wandered so I am having some piano memories tonight.
I started banging away on the piano at an early age, but it was not for a few more years before I started taking lessons from Margaret Hunt. I remember how sometimes my sister and I would ride the city bus all the way across Ottumwa to our lessons at the former Harper Mansion.
This piano is now at my youngest brother’s house and my niece is learning to play.
My Mom also taught piano lessons after school so the sound of piano music was a constant in our home.
I quit taking lessons after me moved to Kansas when I was 11. Instead I took up the trombone. I sometimes wish that I had continued taking piano lessons. I do have piano at home now and will occasionally sit down and play.
Lots of piano memories tonight.
