I had envisioned a Christmas Eve with folks singing Christmas carols, while I played the organ. Hah! That didn’t happen. The idea of singing was apparently offensive to some people. I can’t sing, and I discovered that the book that I was using was only useful if a person plays the organ two-handed. Yes, I know that keyboards are best played with two hands. However, the violin was my instrument of choice, and I only played the notes on the treble clef. Now, I found to my surprise that the music just did not sound right in sections unless one played the notes associated with the bass clef. So much for that idea. I did discover that playing one handed was more than sufficient for playing the many Winter-themed songs in the Wynstones Press Winter book. That will be useful when we return to homeschooling proper and need music for puppet shows and other seasonal activities.
