I can hear her voice
As a child, I was shy and would roll up in the folds of my mother’s skirts. I did not want anybody to see me.
Mother in hopes of encouraging me to be more out going enrolled me in dance class at 4 years old. I made it through the recital. My teacher said I to take tap dancing and ballet the next year. I refused! Tap dancing was for boys.
After I quit dance lessons, Mrs. Marguerita Harlow became my piano teacher. Seeing my nervousness at my first piano recital, Mother gave me some advice. I can still hear her voice as she says,
“Jane, you must treat the audience like guests in your home. Make sure they are comfortable.”
