This Week’s Musical Selection from Heidi Dybing

My Mother died three years ago on June 25.  When my Grandma Agnes Teigen died years earlier I played Amazing Grace in her honor at her memorial service.  Mom asked that I play it at her service someday and I did.  As I performed this piece, I could hear my piano teacher,mother saying….a little quieter here, now build it, watch the fingering on that run, and express your emotions.  So I did.

You would not be listening to this piano piece today if she had not given birth to me and been my only piano teacher.  On her 80th birthday in 2008 we recorded a solo piano cd called Piano Teacher, Mother as a special gift.  Below is the sentiment written inside the case.  Thank you so very much Mom for giving me the enjoyment of music!!!!!!
