Marvin’s lesson was going along
in “tip top” shape. Well almost,
anyway; Marvin was ju**t a little
'Worried. The week before his tea
ch e!r had reminded him that he

his hands “arched,” but it was hard
to keep his fingers curved when
there were so many other things
like fingering, counting and sharps
and flats to remember. He thought
maybe his teacher would not not
