We then start to find the right pieces, and it fits together perfectly.
(We are getting a few notes connected correctly!)
More and more pieces are connecting, and the picture is developing.
(Yes, more and more notes are merging, and we start to hear parts of the song!)
We continue working on the puzzle.
Sometimes it is so easy, and other times it seems like it will never be finished.
(As we continue to practice, there are times when we think, "Yes, I am getting it," and then the next try is a disaster again!)
It gets more exciting near the end, and we are quickly placing piece after piece.
Finally, the last part is in place! We sit back and sigh together.
(We play the song over and over again because it finally sounds like music!)
Our eyes sweep over every part of the beautiful picture.
We can play our song for other people who can enjoy the music as much as we do!
