Moon River

I lay on my bed and watched the clear blue sky today and the trees were so still, it was a nice moment. On piano this week I decided to take a brake from grade pieces and play something different. I have always thought this song was very beautiful but after my first week of playing the piece I found myself feeling very underwhelmed and unmotivated, I think this is because the version of the piece I had chosen is too simple and I know I can do so much better. I was trying to finish the piece quickly so I could move on to the next but a song this beautiful deserves to be played beautifully so I have decided I am going to start over and work on a new version of the piece using what I have already learned so far. Here is a video of the progress I had made with the previous piece.
