Amanda playing piano

I am amazed by how quickly my 7 year old daughter can learn new pieces in piano. They do learn in bursts, the progress in the last 6 months has been truly remarkable, and the best thing is that she (and us) are really enjoying every bit of it. Estella, my wife has been awesome in "pushing" Amanda in this journey and learning herself to play the piano along the way.

We recorded a few song this weekend and put them in YouTube:

Frere Jacques, Gustav Mahler

First Post

In this historical day, and not necessarily related to the 680 point drop in Wall Street :-), I create my first blog page. Even though it's not as powerful as my personal Website (www.mihovilovic.com) that I do by hand, it's very convenient to quickly write something.
