Aiden cat, joins Claudia, 8, and Teacher Shirley Kirsten at the piano bench for “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious” (Video)

Claudia is an enthusiastic 8-year old piano student who was eager to learn “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious” from Mary Poppins. In fact, in just one week after practicing the piece very diligently, she was ready to play the duet with me. At first we tried a slower tempo, but during our second reading we had notched it up a bit. (We are all seated at the Haddorff piano)

Bravo to Claudia for her wonderful preparation and performance! And thanks go to Aiden cat for being an attentive listener.
