I don't usually blog on Saturdays, but this was just so unexpected that I have to blog about it, and I didn't want to leave it until Monday when the whole thing will hopefully be settled. :P
As I mentioned yesterday, I'm looking for a place with an acoustic piano that I could use one afternoon a week to teach piano. There's a little Spanish church next door, so I contacted their local association office to see what the best way to get in touch with someone who speaks English would be. They gave me the name and number of the church treasurer, who I called almost immediately.
I told him what I was looking for, and he sounded genuinely interested. I wasn't really sure I would hear back from him though. Today, my phone rang, and it was him, calling to see if I wanted to come over to the church and check out the piano!
So I did!
It's a Wurlitzer, pretty old, but all 88 keys and the damper pedal work. It's definitely out of tune, but if I can get a few students, I think I might be able to offer to pitch in toward the cost of getting it tuned.
The church treasurer said he'd talk to the pastor tonight, and call me either tonight or tomorrow morning. If the pastor says it's okay, then I'll go over in the morning to meet him.
Here's the fun part... the treasurer's wife said they're having a potluck after church tomorrow and invited me to join them! :) Daniel might have to work tomorrow morning, and if he does... I think I just might go! :)
