Festival in 10 days. I’m getting the hang of it now. A lot of cuts have been made- we’re skipping several pages that I worked very hard to master. Well there’s a few hours of practice down the drain. Perry hadn’t looked at half of it- he didn’t practice at all. And yet, he was still better at playing it than me, and had the authority to tell me how and what to do, and I had to listen.
I just need time to practice it with Perry, and we can pull it off. I have the song, or at least about 20 pages of it, memorised. That’s not as impressive as it sounds, trust me. It’s like, five minutes. Well, the point is, Mrs S. thinks I’m a shit pianist, Perry’s better than me without the hours I’ve put in, and I have no sense of rhythm. I wish, desperately, to stop learning the piano and just throw in the towel, but I figure why waste eight years? May as well go the whole nine yards and play on til my fingers bleed. I wish I could play the Disney classics. Does anyone know where I can find a book for all of them? I think Jupiter’s just about finished. If we don’t win the festival, it’ll have all been for nothing. How’s that for a kick in the nuts?
