Penguin + Harp

We have a new, rising star at our house.  Penguin ... on the harp!  

In our part of the country, we have fall break ... a week off of school in October cause the weather is so nice here!  It's finally cool enough to go outside, but still quite warm.  We decided to take a road trip to UT for part of fall break to visit my grandparents for a few days.  While we were there, Penguin bugged my aunt for a couple harp lessons and now I have a harp sitting in my living room and harp lessons to attend.  Harp was not my choice, suggestion, or something I would've ever come up with, so this is all Penguin's doings & after 6 or 7 lessons, I'd say she's doing quite well!  We took some quick videos with my phone to send up to my aunt so she could see how Penguin in progressing with her new-found hobby.  Please excuse our out-of-tune harp ... tuning it is not high on my favorite things to do list. :)

The first two pieces are being prepared for the ABRSM Grade 1 exam in May & the last song is the one she performed at the Christmas recital a few weeks ago.

Pin It!

I am very impressed! I too love the concentration on her face, and then the big smile at the end. She is such a talented girl, and a great performer.

I'm so happy you recorded Penguin. She's very talented and Grandma B in UT loved seeing her granddaughter in action.

I can't believe how big she is! So talented and looking so grown up. And the baby pictures above are so beautiful, wish you could take pictures of my girls! And every time I look at your blog my mouth waters...suddenly I'm in the mood for brownies :)

Is there anything this girl can't do?! So impressed. You're such a great mom to give her so many opportunities to try new and unique things.
