One disadvantage of wanting to write songs when you're eight (I did too) is that one's not eager to learn the piano despite the lessons. My teacher wanted me to play Czerny and scales. Did yours?

So great to hear from you! That's wild and amazing! I'm so happy to meet another kindred spirit, composing songs at the piano at age 8! Did you ever learn the Czerny and scales? I was mostly learning Fur Elise, Moonlight Sonata, scales, stuff like that. A part of me now wishes I would've learned the classical stuff, and been more focused, but I think you and I were just meant to write songs and express our inborn creative songwriting sparks. Do you still remember the songs you wrote?
