Exercise #1 1.) I took piano lessons for several years as a child, but I never did like to practice. 2.) I surprised both my mother and my former piano teacher by signing up for lessons in the Music Department here at school so now I practice every spare minute I can find. 3.) My hands are small, but I have exercised my fingers and now have managed to stretch an octave. 4.) My fingers are terribly uncoordinated but every week the exercises and scales get easier to play. 5.) I was really embarrassed the first few times I practiced on the old upright in our dorm lounge, so I usually waited until the room was empty. Now, I don’t mind the weird looks I get from people. 6.) Some of my friends clap their hands or tap their feet to help me keep time. 7.) I have met three residents in the dorm who are really good pianists; they’ve been very helpful to me and very supportive of my beginning efforts. 8.) I often play my Glenn Gould records for inspiration and just plain enjoyment.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
