Parents are dusting off their rusty piano skills and now playing daily with their kids. What a opportunity the lockdown has given them.
Some of them are one finger players, so they play whole notes with one finger.
Some of them were accomplished musicians, their playing reflects their growing confidence as skills return.
Most are somewhere in between.
This situation will be over soon enough, the opportunity will be gone. I say take it, it will bring added joy to your life and fond memories.
Here is a video of a parent getting ready to accompany their child at the upcoming Zoom piano recital.
You've got to learn your instrument. Then, you practice, practice, practice. And then, when you finally get up there on the bandstand, forget all that and just wail.
