Charles sits down at the piano and he tries to copy the sheet music in front of him. I put the violin on a nearby table and I sit by him. I lay my head on his shoulder and between notes he kisses my head.
A great way to learn more about the piano is to take the panels or music desk off. This is a great idea for students as well. It helps someone learning to play understand what happens in-between a note being hit and the melody singing out.
