“On the day of the performance, Lucy was very scared and excited.
While Lucy was playing the piano in the performance, she didn’t make any mistakes.
At the end of the performance, Lucy was very proud of herself.”
Once upon a time, there was a girl who started to have piano lessons. The girl’s name was Lucy. Lucy thought that she was horrible, but she was pretty good.
By the time she was ten years old, she was playing very hard piano pieces. Lucy was very impressed that she was playing hard pieces. Lucy just felt like she was getting better and better, and she became great at playing piano. She enjoyed playing “Jingle Bells” and “Deck the Halls.”
Her piano teacher’s name was Natalia. Lucy had blonde hair and liked to wear dresses. Natalia liked to wear jeans and T-shirts and had red hair.
Natalia always said, “Good job, Lucy.”
And Lucy said, “Thank you. But I think I am horrible.”
Then, Natalia said, “I signed you up for the school orchestra.”
“No, no, no, no, no, no,” Lucy said. “You signed me up?! You signed me up?! How come you didn’t ask me?”
Natalia said, “Because I knew you would be really good, and you are really good. Your first performance is in two weeks. You and the orchestra will be playing ‘Deck the Halls,’ so try to practice every day, okay?”
“Okay,” said Lucy.
Natalia said, “The orchestra needs you, okay?”
“Okay.” When she got backstage, Natalia said, “Congratulations!”
And Lucy said, “Thank you.”
Lucy felt very happy.
The performance was in the school’s auditorium. The auditorium was dark.
After the performance, Lucy and her family went back home. Lucy’s family said, “You did a fabulous job, Lucy.”
“Thank you,” said Lucy.
When Lucy and her family got home, it was eleven o’clock. When Lucy went to bed, the sky was very, very dark. It was past Lucy’s bedtime, and she was very tired. When Lucy got into her bed, she fell fast asleep.
Author’s Note: Take piano lessons. It is very fun.
