Music by Denise

I have two musical instruments that I play, the flute and the piano. The flute was my first study. I practiced the flute for at least four hours per day. There was little that I could not accomplish. I was a well accomplished flutist by the time I was ready to retire. It was a perfect time for playing the flute. I played the music for a long time. When it ended I was already a person in need of a new instrument. I bought a perfect piece, a beautiful piano. The piece was involved in all parts of the study. I cannot give a complete account of efforts during the years studied. But I will say that I was with a growing use of my hands.

Today I am struggling with notes, using only the notes that are played from one hand. My right hand is completely paralyzed. And I have only one hand to use. Work is slow. You want to meet all of the notes on each line. There is one more difficulty, and that is with the use of the language or words.

I will work with the one hand available to me. This will bring all the notes from one hand. I have a friend who was a teacher and will bring me some things to practice. I am at the very beginning of learning, and it will take a long time to learn. I intend to be very happy with this work.
