Dear Diary:

Had a piano lesson this morning, in preparation for my 2nd exam next month. 15 September will probably determine whether I pass Grade 8...but I digress. I usually pride myself on being able to identify different composers based on extracts of music...but today was not usual. The short extract my teacher played was by Beethoven, and I thought it was Mozart's work. Boy, was I blushing! I mean, Beethoven and Mozart are like heaven and earth, east and west...you get the idea! So how could I have confused them?
