Piano blues

So I'm getting a little concerned about the piano lessons. They are going pretty well and I like my teacher. Demanding and assertive, but also encouraging so I don't feel too lame. But all of a sudden there is so much to remember. Pedaling at the right time, phrasing of the notes, keeping everything in correct rythmn, I'm even trying to do "voicing" which is when the right hand plays 3 notes - one with the thumb, one with the middle finger and one with the pinky - to play the note that is the melody louder than the other two notes. Arggg! Who can remember to do all that?

Nothing is easy. especially for those arts and music. I still think engineering is the easiest.
