When The Saints Go Marching In

I subscribe to my home town newspaper, and recently I read that my elementary school music teacher and after school piano teacher died.  I sat down at our piano and played the first few lines of "When the Saints Go Marching In" in honor of Mrs. Harris.  She was good piano teacher.  I was a terrible piano student.  I never learned to read music.  Mostly I would watch her play a song and memorize the movements of her hands to get along week to week.

  1. You memorized her hand movements????? Geez, that's amazing!
    I was terrible piano student. I took for five years and the only song I could play & actually liked was a "Boogie Woogie"
    I still can't believe you memorized her hand movements.... Your are multi-talented. How 'bout try the guitar in your free time now?
