Horsecars and Cobblestones (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Horsecars and Cobblestones IT was lonely in the great big parlor that late winter afternoon. I was all by myself on the ﬂoor, practicing at the big shining black piano. Emma, our Polish girl, was singing in the kitchen below. I could hear her Whenever I stopped banging the piano. She was enjoying herself, While I had to do the scales, C major, A major, F major, then the minor scales, fingers stumbling here, racing there, anything to finish. At last I closed the exercise book. What a relief! Now for the Piece, the Faust March. The teacher was coming the next day, so I simply had to learn it. I stretched my fingers for the big chords, counting out loud, one, two, three, four - one, two, three, four.
