You're welcome! (For the record, it wasn't me. It was one of my sons at the doctors) .

Long-distance lessons, engage.

My 13-year old's instructor has moved waaay out of state to pursue his doctorate. He is going to try to continue teaching five of his students, including this one. We start the long distance lessons tomorrow via a couple of different platforms, but before we "meet," his teacher asked for video of my son playing two of his pieces - so he could get a head start on notes and comments. So here are chunks of Ginastera's "Danzas Argentinas" opus 2 no. 3 - "Danza del gaucho matrero" and Beethoven's Piano Sonata no. 5 opus 10 no. 1. 1st movement. He's been working on both since June, plus Listzt's "Sposalizio." Played, not on our piano (I wish!) but on a piano in a nearby church. Barefoot because the main purpose was to practice #organ..and he forgot his organ shoes.  #piano #music

Just don't.

Today is the feast of St. Clare of Assisi. There's much more to her than being the patron saint of television - a 20th century factoid that amuses us, but perhaps masks for us the more uncomfortable, radical challenge that Clare presents. More at the link on my profile. Photos are from one of our trips to Assisi - the room at San Damiano in which Clare died, and the church of S. Chiara, where the San Damiano cross is now located - with an image of the interior by @Ann.Engelhart from ADVENTURES IN ASSISI. #Italy #Catholic #Assisi #saintclare #saints #jesus #franciscans
