Debra suggests Note by Note : A Celebration of the Piano Lesson

Awarded a starred review from Booklist, Tricia Tunstall's book is a beautiful retelling of the growth of a young musician from the first overwhelming lesson to understanding, comfort with a total stranger (the teacher) and hopefully, musical enjoyment. Adults with fond, or not so fond, memories of these shared hours between student and teacher will appreciate the author's honesty and humor. When I discovered that Tunstall and I unknowingly took lessons from the same teacher, my reading became even more meaningful. Perhaps you will also recognize with pleasure some forgotten part of your past musical life.
