I honestly can’t remember my first favorite song. But I can remember the one that has stuck with me the most years. When I was in grad school, my professor challenged me to learn by ear, never looking at the music, like young non-readers have to do. I was a teacher apprentice of the great John Kendall. He instructed me to memorize a piece of my playing level, so it would be fair, and he chose Bach Courante in Book 8. I memorized strictly from listening to recordings. I never forgot it.
