"The Tired Turtle Express" by Christine Donkin

The Tired Turtle Express is an early elementary piece from the book "Comics & Card Tricks: 12 elementary piano solos", by Christine Donkin. I had so much fun practicing this one: first time I encountered a piece with ritardando, first time practicing grace notes, and the first time playing something a bit more jazz-y!

Sheet music for this piece:

Hi, I'm Maira and this is my attempt at old-fashioned personal blogging in the era of social media overload. I'm a day trader, programmer and photographer currently based in Valencia, Spain, and the last thing I want to talk about is work.

My little corner on the internet is all about photography, travels, learning piano, gardening, baking... The kind of personal stuff I'd share with my mom on social media, but without the ads.
