I guess one of the most beautiful moments of this year has been the last lesson before the winter holidays of a little 8year old kid. He has started to play flute this year, and has learned to play 5 notes so far: sol - la - si - do - re. And guess what? He can play Jingle Bells! The first time he tried it, he played very slowly, reading the score on his own. And once arrived at the last note, he couldn't play it because of an enormous smile on his face.
I think his joy of playing his favourite Christmas song has been the best present this year for me.
Merry Christmas to all and Happy New Year full of beautiful music!!!
