    I had decided a few weeks ago against taking on any new students as my time is very limited. However when a friend of a friend introduced me to Craig, I thought....it's the least I can do for this poor struggling college guy.

    He is on the swim team at the university and for some reason feels more comfortable in his swim trunks while taking piano lessons.
    I don't have the heart to ask him to put his clothes back on, after all, I do want him to be completely comfortable.

    We've started working on his digit dexterity, he has a ways to go, but if nothing, I am a patient man. I'm also taking extra time to give him some hands-on training , teaching him how to alternate between adagio appassionata and accelerando...all sotto voce of course.

    I'll keep you informed as to his progress.

    sounds like you might be teaching him how to play the flesh flute instead of the piano

    at least you don't have to chase him down the isle to catch him by the organ.

    i wonder if he's a Florestan or a Eusebius.

    If he can play the conclusion to Rachmaninov's C# Minor Prelude, then I want to see him with his trunks off.

    Is he ready to play a duet, say, something written for piano & flute like Bach or Telemann's Sonata in F Major?

    Not sure I've ever played the flute in a swim suit before, but if it makes him more comfortable...

    Let's us know about your, I mean his, progress.

    Do let us know when he's ready for his first public performance. icon_evil.gif

    Reminds me of the drummer in "The Visitor". In fact, if you get him and Haaz Sleiman to perform together, I'll fly over for it! icon_biggrin.gif

    LMAO! However that guy is really really hot and I also think gay. Maybe its a kink of his to fool around while learning piano? I know my bf has often told me should he find me playing a cello in our room that he might have no choice but to make passionate love to me.... I asked "Santa" for an Electric one. icon_twisted.gif

    You know, the thought never entered my mind. However, I have noticed that he seems to enjoy it when I "guide his hands" icon_wink.gif

    I like that, start slow, pick up the tempo but keep it quiet. Sweet whispers and soft touches icon_smile.gif
