Joely and Jerah have been really motivated to improve their piano skills these last few months. Sadly, I haven't worked with them at all in the last year. I say sadly because as a piano teacher, I'm helping all these other kids learn how to play the piano, but I'm not working with my own kids enough.
Regardless, the girls have picked up a lot just by listening in on my lessons. What they have learned on the piano is because they've sat down and taught themselves (with me occasionally yelling from the other room something like "You missed the A flat!" or "Watch your rhythm!"
This is Jerah singing Phil Wickham's song "Cannons" at our last Fifth Sunday Singing at church. (Sorry, the video starts in the middle because our camera wouldn't focus right.) What's really cool is that Jeff and I got to speak personally with Phil in person last year at one of his concerts in Dallas. Such a genuinely nice — and very talented guy!
