How was your piano lesson? :)

There is much to learn. She was impressed with the one song I know (Mozart's Turkish March) but that song is an island. There's nothing behind it besides muscle memory and if I make a mistake I have no idea where to go.

During the second lesson (when I asked her how long it would take before I could learn Beethoven's Pathetique Sonata) she said she applauded my fire but said I am not ready for that. So she's got me playing every sharp major scale with just two fingers, all the harmonic triads, etc.

This week was an off week, end of the last semester, so I've got two weeks to practice before my next lesson. Practice makes better!

Meanwhile I learned the first few chords to Pathetique on the sly.
