Recently I have noticed some of my piano students singing, just bursting out quite unself-consciously with all the words to a song. I sit back and watch, delighted at the joy of youth.

One little girl sang every word of a piece she came upon on her way to the one we were about to practice, while I sat back loving the moment. I couldn’t help but feel a little wistful at the idea that this little girl is so secure and happy that she can sing out her joy.
