A group of five people are gathered outside near a piano. At the center, a light-skinned young woman with a red necklace, white dress, and dark hair in an updo leans one arm on a stack of books on the piano, a sheet of paper in the other hand. Next to her, a light-skinned and dark-haired boy behind the piano points at the sheet music. On the woman's other side, two women are seated on benches, one an older light-skinned woman with slightly hunched posture and a cream-colored shawl and the other a light-skinned woman with dark hair, a white bonnet, and a bright red dress. Behind the two seated women, a man with light skin, white hair, and a dark coat stands holding a print or drawing.
