It’s a moment I have thought about ever since it became clear that Peter has perfect pitch. I knew I would someday introduce him to the piano keyboard & see how quickly he grasps the concept of a musical scale, and the relationship of physical up & down on the keyboard and higher & lower pitches.
I set up a video camera next to the piano, gave Peter a quick (30 seconds or so) explanation of a C Major scale and how the keyboard works, and I then turned on the camera. What you see here is unrehearsed, and quite literally Peter’s 1st time playing the piano.
[my apologies for the audio quality – Murphy’s Law kicked in & the video’s audio track sounds terrible – go figure]
