Give the Gift of Music!

One of the best Christmas gifts you can give is the gift of music.

Decades ago my younger sister prayed for a piano – daily – for two years. I came home from school a few days before Christmas only to find a piano in the living room. Yes, the small living room. But the night before lessons started I dreamed I was playing beautiful arpeggios (didn’t know what they were called at the time) and sure enough, my piano lessons with Mr. Ernest St. Jacques opened a whole new world for me.

Now I have the privilege of showing my students the same world. Adults as well as children can learn to play piano. One of my most ambitious students started playing for worship singing in just two years of beginning piano instructions and played for a double wedding a couple years later! Most play for enjoyment and children learn a valuable discipline in mental assimilation and coordination. Whatever your motives, give the gift of music!!
