My Mother, Eileen is very talented. One of those talents is her beautiful voice accompanied by her piano & organ playing.
Growing up I listened often and was memorized as I watched her totally enjoying herself.
As a young girl I was intrigued by that…tick tock coming from a gracious piece atop the piano.
come join the weekly fun for a whole year!!
I learned that mother was keeping time with what is called a Metronome. I tried to play but could only play by sound so it went no further. What us kids did like is when Mom played that special song...we would twirl around until we got dizzy...memories!The Piano, stool and Metronome were my great grandparents. I have no idea where the Piano and stool are but I was fortunate to have gotten the Metronome handed down to me by my father, Francis.
In doing some research I have found that it is from within the 1920’s.
May the Rhythm from it carry on to future generations…
