Mom’s note to me about my piano lineage. I was the first in the family, and she had the energy to keep me nailed to the piano bench for daily practice before I could play with the neighborhood kids. Had some pretty good teachers, as we went from Tracy to Japan, where I took lessons from a Japanese concert pianist, and then on to Germany where I took lessons from Herr Jungling for three years. This culminated in a piano solo at my high school with orchestra accompaniment–an awesome experience. Mom hand wrote this note for me a few years ago to draw my piano lineage from Herr Jungling to Beethoven. Kinda cool, don’t you think?
