Beautiful.  A very talented young lady.  If a violin was available to her for a while, she could probably do much the same thing on violin as well.

I think you are totally correct but at least the piano presence allows my violin playing to remain a slight bit above being entirely insignificant.  If she played violin, I would be tempted to sell.

Playing the piano with little musical talent and short fingers IS a handicap.

I have to re-consider "reincarnation" now.

I just noticed that your "signature" happens to be somewhat relevant to the topic birthday_balloon
