Little background: difficult child owns a keyboard. She never took piano lessons or anything - just likes to fool around with it and make all kinds of sounds. The keyboard also has a "learn to play" feature - there are a couple songs on the keyboard that will play a few notes at a time and then pause to let you "copy" the notes yourself...and eventually you learn the whole song. Based upon these keyboarding skills - difficult child signed up for a school event. No - not a "talent show" or anything like that. Instead, difficult child volunteered to be the accompanist at a formal school program being held in February. The program organizer (having no inkling of difficult child's lack of ability) is very pleased and asked difficult child to learn a particular piece for the show. difficult child had never heard of the song requested - but agreed anyway. Since she does not read piano music - she assumed that she could find a recording of the song on YouTube and learn it by copying a few notes at a time. The song turned out to be a fairly complex rock-and-roll type selection instead of the simple few-notes-at-a-time music that difficult child was anticipating. Undaunted - difficult child has explained to us that the organizer didn't really intend for difficult child to actually learn the whole song...just for her to be able to play along some harmonies here and there. Besides, since this song is so difficult, the organizer will probably change her mind and choose something simpler instead. Should be an interesting show - to say the least.
