During a two week break from piano lessons Art learned (with Jessica’s help) a really wonderful piece of music by Satie called “Gnossienne 1”. Moving and intense and dramatic, I love to hear him practice it. When Art went to his piano lesson to play it for his teacher Sharon she was so moved she wept. Not just at the music but at how much Arthur had learned and grown on his own. It was a wonderful moment in the little boy’s life that I think he’ll remember a long time. He still feels sorta bad about making his piano teacher cry but ah well. Make them cry!
Here he is performing the piece at a piano recital yesterday
