My oldest child is desperately preparing for his piano recital in a few days and let’s just say he could use a few more practice sessions. And, of course, more piano practicing is not what my son wants to do with his time. His dad appeased him by telling my son that if he got up early in the mornings, it would be awesome if he tried to wake us up by playing his songs.
So this morning the alarm goes off and I pushed the snooze button. And a few minutes later I heard the sound of the piano bench being pulled out. Sure enough, here comes the first refrains of Mozart’s Eine kleine Nachtmusik. I tell you, waking to the sounds of that was lovely.
