Last Organ Lesson

Today was the last day of my organ lessons until next semester. :( Fortunately, I still get to use the organ room until the end of the semester. Dr. Greenlee was so happy for me, I really made great strides and doing 100% better. Of course there is still room for improvement, but as someone who couldn't read music before and carry a tune, I now can. :) I still need to improve on using the pedals and the stretching of fingers, but in due time. :) I wish I could play audio on here, but if you signed up on my list to receive Christmas/Hanukkah/Eid cards, you will be getting a CD of my organ playing. :) I am so proud of it that I have to share with everyone.

However, I can share with you something from before lessons compared to recently:

Before lessons.

Maybe not the best, but it's heading there. I recorded my best for the CD.


The music students in Swope are holding a raffle. I bought an arms length for $5. I put a quarter of the tickets in the cup for a free lesson with Dr. Greenlee and the rest into prize package 1 that includes a metronome, a gift card to Taylor's music, gift card to a restaurant, and a t-shirt. I want that prize because I love Taylor's and I'm going to start playing the guitar again (as well) and can use it for guitar and organ stuff. Also, I need a metronome for both the guitar and organ. Friday I am going to buy more tickets for $5, then the WCU School of Music tee-shirt. I should get a picture of me holding the shirt and giving a thumbs up so more people can sign up. :D

I have been working more on my book. I am not going to share all the poem because I do want you dear readers to check out the book, but here is some:


Their angry rhetorical accent:
Revoke and Restore;
This land is my land,
This land is yours,
This land was made for you and me.

  4. Good job with the organ playing! That's a lot of progress, especially considering that you couldn't read music when you started! :)

    p.s. Just wanted to let you know that I really do follow your blog, but Internet Explorer doesn't seem to like me to comment... I've tried commenting on a few other posts, and it wouldn't work, so today I finally used a different browser... :)
