Sometimes I am struck by how much of my musical education came from piano lessons when I was a child and young teen, and more significantly, how much I retained of that. This week in particular, it hit me when I was writing parts in staff notation for a certain drummer/keyboardist. And I took some pride in details like stem orientation. Where did I learn this, and why does it always feel fresh in my brain, four decades later? 90% of it was from my piano teacher, Kathy Job. Thanks, wherever you are now.
