Making Music, Bringing Joy
By Beth Beutler
  

1     "I'm going to take accordion lessons," Taylor said to Daniel.
 
2     "Really? That's interesting," Daniel replied. "What made you decide to do that?"
 
3     "My mom and I were going through my uncle's attic this weekend. He has to go into a nursing home. We found his old accordion. I never even knew he played."
 
4     "Did he remember playing?" Daniel asked, knowing that Taylor's uncle's mind had been failing lately.
 
5     "When I brought it downstairs, his eyes lit up like candles," Taylor said. "He immediately remembered playing it when he was younger. We talked a lot about it."
 
6     "That's cool!" Daniel said. "Does the accordion still work well?"
 
7     "It needs some refurbishing, but yes, it will be playable."
 
8     "Who gives lessons around here?" Daniel asked.
 
9     "The local music and arts school has a teacher who teaches accordion to a few students. I start in two weeks, just after the accordion is returned to me."
