She asked to learn the piano.

Didn't you, dear?


She's a clever

and very serious student.

I'll give her a quick test

and then we'll see.

Wait in the living room.

Did you hear, dear? Go on.

It's so kind of you.

I don't know how to thank you.


The foundation.

Remember its position.


Right hand on the keyboard,

your thumb on C.

Keep your wrist straight.

You bite your nails at your age?

You should get rid of that bad habit.

Don't give me that look.

It's simple for now.

It all happens here.

Play me a C.

More forthright.

That's better.

You're playing music, remember.

Keep your wrist straight. C.

One more time.

One more time. Again.

C -



Concentrate, young lady!


What's going on?

Who asked you to stand up?


I'm sorry about last time.

I haven't taken students

for years now.

When I saw your grades,

especially in musical activities,

I felt like trying one last time.

This year,

the academy is holding a competition

for amateurs.

I'd like you to try it.

You'll be with older people

but I think you can do it.

It will take a lot of effort...

and discipline

but I'll be here.

Sit down at the piano.

And sit up straight.

I shouldn't have to tell you!


There's easier stuff

but we have to impress the jury.

We'll take it step by step.

At our own pace, without rushing.

We have all summer to do it in.

Start with the right hand.

Just the first line.

What's wrong?

It starts with a C!

Three, four... C, C...

The time, the tempo...

Be a musician.

Concentrate, young lady!

What are you doing?

That isn't it.

Who taught you that?



Why on earth did she do it?

She was so gifted.

She'll never be able to play again.
