My daughter Bri (almost 5 years old) insists on playing with both hands, but she did get around to playing just left- and just right-handed.

Today, Bri played 2 songs.

Both Hands: 25/32 - 634
Right Hand-only: 7/8 - 88
Left Hand-only: 19/24 - 313

Drummer
Right Hand-only: 16/21 - 223
Left Hand-only: 56/64 - 205
Both Hands: 74/85 - 373

She also played Fruit Lines School, but I didn't notate the score.

I'm not sure if I'm supposed to reply to this same thread every time I share our progress, but here goes...

Today, Carlyn (the mom) completed First Steps Level 0.1. It only seemed fair that I first play the songs that I will later encourage my daughters to play.

I first listened to the songs and played them until I felt comfortable. I practiced until I memorized Ode to Joy. I was able to play it with eyes closed, no mistakes, with a score of 6.

I plan on uploading a video soon as I plan to apply for a scholarship.

I am also wondering which album to start working on. There are lots of albums. It's kind of overwhelming.

I'll list the scores just in case it comes in handy later
