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.
