Introducing Maya


Sunday 19 July, 2015 by Uncle Spike

This is a breakaway post by Uncle Spike to introduce a spot of culture or a moment of Sunday serenity. So today I’m introducing Maya, a young 8-year old girl here in Türkiye who, when first meeting her, seems to be a pretty normal ‘kid’ by all measures. But of course, as in many times in life, we can sometimes be (pleasantly) surprised… 

Maya loves pink… and she loves ice-cream

And fooling around in the garden

And… playing the piano 🙂

Take a moment out of your busy day and relax for two minutes, as young Maya plays for us Friedrich Kuhlau’s “Sonatina in C , Op. 55 No. 1″… Note the lack of music – never seen her use any.

    My goodness. I am amazed those little fingers can do all that. Good hand position too. Does she go to your son’s school? What age did she start playing? I hope you write more posts about Maya.
    We went to see ‘The Choir’ last night with Dustin Hoffman. I was equally amazed at how those young boys could learn all that classical music to sing. It was incredible.
