SEASON’S CHANGING IN THE PIANO STUDIO BY DONIELL C CUSHMAN 34THPARALLEL MAGAZINE ISSUE 117 PREVIEW
He plays the piano lesson
with an oversized hoodie on
his throat is sore
C chords in inversions, up and down
he asks if the second chords are in F or G

runs a hand through his thick chestnut hair
“Oh yeah,” he says “I remember this one.”
Oh, okay. He takes correction well.

before chromatic scales
C-B-B flat, try that again
adding in left hand separately
