Matt is learning more complicated pieces now and I think he's getting really good. I'm not a fan of cooking so when I have to, I ask Matt to practice at the same time and I enjoy listening while I cook!! His first piece was Minuet by Mozart.
Last but not least, the kids got to play a duo together again. Playing together requires them to listen to the other person while playing their music. It's not easy. There is usually a lot of arguing and a lot of laughing while they practice at home. For this piece, they would always nod their head at the end and then die laughing. I'm not sure why it was so funny but the first time Marlie was on the floor laughing. So I was glad at the recital that they managed to stay in "recital mode" and hold it together! Here they are playing Friends!
