A surprise for the Bride
9 months ago I had a new student Kev arrive for his first ever lesson. His reason for wanting to play was that he was getting married and wanted to play a song for his wife at the wedding. Well it just goes to show what Love, hard work and dedication can achieve. Yesterday Mrs Pierce and the hundred or so guests at their wedding were treated to Kev’s first performance of A Thousand Years by Cristina Perri. Amazing that you can learn to play from memory in such a short time, under such pressure and play beautifully too.
It was quite amusing teaching Kev as on many occasions his fiancée Lucy would phone him during a lesson and I had to keep quiet whilst he made excuses for where he was. They went shopping for suitcases for the honeymoon and couldn’t fit them into the boot of the car because his sax was there – when asked what it was Kev replied that it was a diagnostic tool for his work!
Quite amazingly I had another student start lessons the same week as Kev with the same reason behind it but he hasn’t set the date yet.
We can achieve anything we want if we set our minds to it.
