I take jazz piano lessons from my good friend Mel, and the praying mantis stance is kind of inside joke. Okay,... so this me, practicing jazz.
I like playing the piano, and I like jazz, don't get me wrong, but I've been working a lot on playing like I AM A pianist. With confidence. If I don't, Mel says I look and act like this:
And then Mel's all apologetic and says she's being a brat, and I'm all, "NO! Please be a brat!"
I need the extra push so I'll work through all my insecurities.
And then she play acts what I act/look like and we both laugh and laugh.
