When I was in High School rummaging through the sheet music I found the sheet music to “Moonlight Sonata” by Beethoven. My sister, Joanne, had played it when she was in High School five or so years earlier. I could not read music, but I could figure out the notes and I was familiar with the rhythm and melody of the piece, so I started learning the piece, memorizing as I went. I got halfway through it before I came to a series of runs that were difficult for me, so I learned no more.
