Carter began studying piano a few months ago and he performed in his first recital today. His teacher, Rachel, wisely pitched the event as a "piano party" at her house. Formal recitals, like those at which Erik performed for many years as a child, are wonderful and challenging events. But, with the low stress of the party, Carter experienced no stage fright - bounding up to the piano to play "Old MacDonald." The video is above; below you see him relaxing after completing his piece.
