My piano lesson today felt like it was hours, instead of only an hour and a half. I'm not sure why, completely, but I think it was because we covered so much material in that time slot. I think it was also partly because I've been feeling rather down lately, and being reminded of all the ways I'm playing wrong, and all the things I should know and don't, from being taught by a different teacher, is a little overwhelming. It is so hard to remember everything that is normally taught more slowly to beginner pianists. But I know I can do this. I will. And I'll be a better teacher and pianist because of it.
