“Look at her,” Claire giggled, “she looks so little sitting at that grand piano,” her piano teacher turned around and shushed Claire and her friends. Claire rolled her eyes and whispered, “she will never be able to make it through that song without messing up; her fingers won’t be long enough to reach.”
Taylor, 14-year-old, 4-foot 5 inches tall, closed her eyes and began to play; her hands flew fluidly along the keys and when she stood up after lightly tapping the last key, she received the loudest applause out of the entire class, and in the crowd, she saw Claire and her friends sat jaw-dropped.
This is a response for Sonya’s challenge, 3 Lines Tale, where we write 3 lines about the picture above.
This story was inspired by one of my favorite classical tunes, Moonlight Sonata by Beethoven. You can hear the tune below. The part Claire and her friends said Taylor would mess up begins around the 8:00 mark but nonetheless, Taylor played it perfectly. 🙂
