As an adult I wish I had spent more time learning
how to play piano after sheet music, as I am still
no good at that! Instead I played music I heard
and that is still how I play the piano. I will
always be grateful for my parents introducing
us children to music; it has given me a lot of
joy and still does.
At one point I was determined to become a music
teacher (yeah, some people actually choose careers
like that, no arms twisted….), but as often
in life coincidences made me change direction,
I ended up as a dental hygienist instead
and music became just a hobby.

Concerts at the garrison where we lived, the choir
was made up of most of the officer’s children.
