As Tommy mentioned, I have my first piano recital tonight. I have been playing the piano for about 9 months now, and my teacher recently complemented my playing. Apparently, I now play like a bad piano player (not her words), which is a step up from a good guitarist sitting down at a piano.

I will be playing four pieces: Symphony No. 5 by Tchaikovsky, Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring by Bach, Polevetzian Dance by Borodin, and Let It Be as a duet with my teacher. The first three are arranged by James Bastien, a man that made his living arranging difficult pieces for beginners so that we can play songs that don't involve little lambs.
