Music Class...(A.K.A. Wearing Out Dad!)





O loves his music class...he dances, laughs and sings with gusto! It is really great to see him enjoy it so much.

Joe mentioned the other day buying a piano...we have three guitars around the house, (well, 4 if I count O's guitar!)...I am contemplating getting a couple of drums for O to play with...

When I was in my early teens, I took piano lessons. I remember enjoying them a lot, and I think I played pretty well for someone that only took them a year, at most two. Of course, looking back, I wish I had stuck with it...but I think boys and hanging out at the mall took precedence. Ah, the priorities of a teenager. I hope O is smarter than I was...

I think as long as we make music fun, and expose him to all sorts of sounds from around the world, he will enjoy it and maybe even want to pursue learning an instrument. One can hope.

I remember those days... I always felt it was a workout for the parent too! But great fun, of course. Isabel is in her last year with the same program and she still loves it.

awesome pictures! We got our piano from the Whitworth piano sale - it was really ceap (for a piano) and REALLY used, do I dont worry about Hayden playing it with his airplane instead of his fingers!
