My first attempt playing the piano while singing my favorite showtune! .
Just a few years ago, I believed I had no musical talent or gifts to offer. Despite desperately wanting to sing and play instruments, I would avoid opportunities because I did not believe I would be able to learn. It felt impossible. .
Then I moved to New York and serendipitously started dated a Broadway actress. I’d never been to a show and was thrilled to see the one she was in. Within the first 10 minutes, my heart exploded with passion and joy. It was so loud that my mind could no longer tame it. I started singing the songs alone at home when no one could hear me. Little by little, my mountain of shameful fear crumbled. Then I asked my twin sister to introduce me to a singing teacher in NYC. She introduced me to the fabulous Stacy Ann Tilton of AMDA, I scheduled a session and the rest is history. (Stacy is an angel in disguise)
Bringing music back into my life has been both my greatest joy and challenge. I’m eternally grateful that I can share this simple gift with you. It is a lifetime in the making. .
@magicisreal_lizzie thank you for the gift of this piano and inspiring me to play! You are magical.
